Christina Galese hopped on board the plane for her trip from Newark Liberty International Airport to Orlando, armed for her flight with her trusty headphones. You never know if your seatmate is a snorer, a talker or an armrest hog, so she tried to be prepared.
But Christina definitely wasn’t ready for what she encountered on her plane. In fact, other passengers were quite stunned at what they traipsed across, too.
In one row was seated a dad with his cutie pie 18-month-old daughter perched on his lap. In an adjacent row was his wife and the little girl’s precious twin sister.
Christina noticed numerous passengers briskly walking right on by the two rows where the wee ones sat, but she didn’t. She shared her story with Love What Matters and said she doesn’t mind children and knew she had a secret weapon anyway — her headphones.
She climbed over the dad and one of the twins to occupy the window seat in their row. More and more people walked on by, some glancing disdainfully at the young family.
Oftentimes airline passengers are less than thrilled when pint-sized travelers are on board their plane. Especially if they’re fussy or loudly crying.
But Christina didn’t mind. Neither apparently did the passenger who sat down between her and the dad cradling the little girl.
Before their flight taxied down the runway, the mom and dad did something so astonishing that Christina felt compelled to share their story. She and the other passengers couldn’t believe it!
