From a regular passenger’s eyes, a flight attendant may look like someone who performs simple duties, like serving food and making sure everyone is seated in an airplane.

However, some would go the extra mile if it meant helping a passenger overcome their fear of flying, just like this Lion Air flight attendant.

The internet was all hearts after a video showing the flight attendant assisting a senior citizen passenger during mealtime by feeding her went viral on social media.

Loving gesture

Going the extra mile.
Malay Mail
reported that the senior citizen, who was reportedly 117-years-old, was travelling from Surabaya to Palangkaraya on the Indonesian low-cost carrier.

According to Instagram user Armaini Imay, who was on the same flight and recorded the video, the anxious elderly passenger initially refused to put on a seatbelt and wanted to get down from the airplane.

“With such loving care, the flight attendant gave her a beverage, fed her gently as though she was his own mother and managed to coax her to wear a seatbelt in the end,” he wrote on the post.
