When 88-year-old Violet told Jack that she had always dreamed of sitting in the first class cabin, Jack generously made her dream come true despite the two of them being a stranger to one another.
In a heartwarming Facebook post shared by Virgin Atlantic flight attendant, Leah Amy, Jack and Violet were on a flight from New York to London during which Jack decided to give his first class seat to Violet.

It is understood that Jack and Violet struck up a friendship before they boarded the plane.
“Jack and his family purchased seats in our upper class cabin for a flight home from New York, but when he got onboard, Jack went and found Violet in economy and swapped seats with her,” Leah wrote in her post.
According to Leah, Violet who has worked as a nurse in both the United Kingdom and the United States often travels to New York to visit her daughter.
However, the flight she took that day was the first time in a while since she had her knee replacement.
While she is familiar with long-haul flights, Violet told Jack that she wished to travel in first class seat.
Jack then swapped his first class seat with Violet and sat in the economy cabin.
“He then sat on the row of seats directly next to the economy toilets and never made a peep or asked for anything the rest of the flight,” Leah wrote.
“No fuss, no attention, literally did it out of the kindness of his own heart, no one asked him too,” she continued.
“You should of seen her face, when I tucked her in her bed after supper. She said her daughter won’t believe her, and wanted a ‘selfie’ to prove it, but didn’t have a phone or an email address.”
When the post made rounds on social media later, internet users were quick to praise Jack for his kindness and generosity to give his seat to the elderly woman.
Meanwhile, other internet users commented that such an act of kindness would forever be treasured by Violet
It may seem like a simple act of kindness but it sure does go a long way!
“Her dream has always been to sit at the front, and Jack made that come true.”
