The man identified as Jack was said to have found the 88-year-old woman named Violet in the economy class as he came onboard.

Leah said Violet – who is a nurse that travels to the UK and America to carry out her work – had always wanted to seat in the front and it came to reality thanks to Jack.

The stunned woman then requested photos with the kind-hearted man.

“Bravo Jack for your kindness and bravo Leah for sharing this lovely gesture. This post will help kindness become contagious.”

“A wonderful story about Jack and Violet. If only you had not mocked Violet’s given name. That’s who she is, not a Vera or Rose to be renamed. Cheers.”

Minnie Meneses Lee commented:

“Jack is a product of good upbringing and possibly good compassionate people around him while growing up.”

Genevieve Vas reacted:

“This world goes on for the kindness found in persons like Jack. Leah, appreciated your thoughtfulness too.”
