Here’s Why This Picture Of A Woman At An Airport Is Going Viral


Amazing! My faith in humanity remains thanks to people like this.

One compassionate woman saw a family in need, knew she could help and didn’t hesitate to act.

A picture of a woman buying a ticket at an airline counter has gone viral for a heartwarming reason.

“A gentleman was checking in for his flight when the agent asked how old his daughter was,” the post reads. “He said she had recently turned two. The agent then asked if she had a ticket. The man was confused because he was under the impression she could ride for free. (When he booked the ticket, she was [1 year old] but her birthday was in January.)”

The man was overwhelmed with emotion as he couldn’t afford the high cost of the second ticket for his young daughter.

“He stepped aside and tried to make a few calls. Hugging his daughter and grabbing his head, you could tell he was heartbroken,” the post reads.

Suddenly, a stranger approaches the emotional father. After talking with him for a while, she went to the ticket counter, pointed at the young girl and said, “I wanna buy her ticket.”
The agent, shocked, asked her if she was aware that a last minute ticket on the flight would be $749. Unfazed, the woman pulled out her credit card and paid the full price.

“The agent kept talking about her goosebumps while the man hugged the woman and asked for her name to repay her,” the post continued. “The woman just kept saying, ‘Don’t worry about it.’ She knew she wanted to help that man and his daughter no matter what the cost.”

This woman did what anyone in her situation should do if they are able. That includes whatever airline was involved in this story. The man purchased her ticket when she was one and that should hold regardless of her birthday. She was two and could’ve easily sat on his lap if the flight was full which it obviously wasn’t seeing as the woman was able to purchase the ticket.

This airline is a disgrace and should be boycotted for behaving this way.
