A dad spent Christmas flying across the country with his flight-attendant daughter after learning she would have to work the holiday.
Hal Vaughan flew on at least two flights with his daughter, Pierce Vaughan, who works for Delta Air Lines and was scheduled to work Christmas Eve and Christmas.
Hal joined Pierce on flights from Fort Meyers, Florida, to Detroit and from Detroit to Massachusetts, according to 11 Alive.
In a Facebook post, Pierce said her dad used her family benefits to book the flights.
According to Delta’s website, Delta employee benefits include free or reduced travel for spouses, minor dependent children, and parents.
“Dad’s first trip using his benefits was a success!” Pierce wrote on Facebook. “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).”
Pierce shared two photos that had been taken by another passenger, Mike Levy, who sat next to Hal on his flight to Detroit.
“What a fantastic father,” Levy wrote in a post, which featured a photo of Pierce in her Delta uniform and a selfie with Hal.
