Members of the United States Armed Forces frequently receive preferential treatment as a result of everything they do for the nation. All military personnel, active or retired, are welcome to board the aircraft early, and the airport officials as well as the cabin crew will frequently praise them for their service.
Many people believe that they should receive additional perks on flights, such as complimentary food and first-class seats. A few passengers observed a uniformed woman getting ready for the aircraft while they were waiting in the boarding area before a flight. First class passengers boarded the aircraft first (as they always do) and took their seats as soon as they were eventually permitted to do so.
After that, passengers from the airline’s clubs and members of the armed forces boarded the aircraft. She went on to detail what transpired next below.
Jessica Titus, a passenger, boarded the aircraft after the uniformed woman, and was astounded by what she saw next. The post received over 37,000 replies and 2,600 shares after she shared the tale below on the Facebook page Love What Matters.
Jessica’s writing. I followed an Army woman down the jetway on my flight on Tuesday. Sorry ma’am, I’m in your seat, a man apologized as he got up from his first-class seat.He said, “What does your ticket say?” “What?” she retorted. No – I’m 31 B.” She was left in his first-class seat as he left, and he later took her middle coach seat.Jessica was so moved by what she saw that she made a decision to repay the man who gave up his seat with her own act of kindness.
She sent the man a letter via a flight attendant, along with a message and some cash.Please accept a drink or snack on me in seat 31B. The world would be a better place if everyone treated others the way you treated the servicewoman. Jessica said, “Spoiler alert, he declined my offer, even though the man appreciated the note. Do well. Appreciate good. Improve the environment.
We all need to be reminded that there is good in the world by stories like this one. Jessica, thanks for sharing.
