Every day, we come across different types of content that are informative, interesting and heart-warming Then there is content that takes the internet by storm, grabbing all our attention. Recently, we came across one such news that not only melted our hearts, but also loaded us with positivity. It was a story about how a man helped an elderly couple take their first flight and made it memorable for them. The person, named Amitabh Shah, took to LinkedIn to share the incident.
According to the post, Shah was travelling from Delhi to Kanpur, when he came across an old couple who were waiting in the boarding area clueless. From their very expression, the man could understand that "it's their first time and they didn't understand English." So, Shah helped them board the flight and found that "they were seated just in front of me".
The post further read, "When the airhostess came to serve food, they declined. But they clearly seemed hungry and thirsty for hours." Seeing this, Shah went up to the airhostess and asked her to give the couple "paneer sandwiches and juices" and "tell them it was complimentary as they were lucky customers to win a free meal". He also added that he secretly paid for the meal.
Here's the complete post for you:
