Is there anything a dad wouldn’t do for his daughter? At the end of the day, the bond between the two is the most powerful of all.
One dad couldn’t imagine spending the most wonderful time of the year away from his loving girl who tuned out to be working both on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so he came up with the sweetest idea possible. This man’s love for his child melted our hearts.
Pierce is a flight attendant, so her dad booked onto every one of the flights she was supposed to be in only to be able to spend the holidays by her side.
Mike Levy, who sat next to Hal on the plane, wrote on Facebook:
I had the pleasure of sitting next to Hal on my flight back home.
His daughter Pierce was our flight attendant who had to work over Christmas.
Hal decided he would spend the holiday with her. So, he is flying on each of her flights today and tomorrow around the country to spend time with his daughter for Christmas.
What a fantastic father! Wish you both a very Merry Christmas!

This made me cry… I would love to share it. A story worth telling this time of year!
Probably the best Christmas story I’ve heard this year
Hal’s daughter Pierce Vaughan, explained on Facebook how her dad used his family flight benefits on Delta Airlines:
Dad’s first trip using his benefits was a success! A special thanks to all of the patient, wonderful gate agents around the country and my perfect crew. He made it on every flight and even got first class RSW-DTW (Christmas miracle).
Shoutout to Mike Levy for being a great first class passenger & helping us to understand how cool this actually is!
According to Delta’s website, employee benefits include free or reduced travel for spoused, minor dependent children, and parents.
What a heart-warming story!
