You are going to want to wish you were born 30,000 feet in the air after hearing the gift this baby has received.
A baby born on a Jet Airways flight from Dammam (Saudi Arabia) to Kochi has scored the ultimate ticket that we have all been dreaming of.
Yes that’s right, the premature baby born healthy and delivered by trained paramedics onboard, has been given a lifetime of free flights. The Independent reports that this is Jet Airways’ first mid-air birth, and the fifth child to be born onboard a commercial flight in the past year.
The Independent also highlighted that, while this baby is going to be flying sky high for zero dimes, it is not always the case for babies born on other commercial aircrafts.
A mother gave birth on board a Turkish Airlines flight in April, and scored nothing but a safe trip to the hospital upon landing.
Virgin Atlantic had been a little more generous, having granted a baby born onboard free flights up until they turn 21. In 1990, British Airways shared similar generosity, by offering Shona Owen’s new born baby a free first class ticket only on her 18th birthday.
A baby born on a Jetstar Asia flight last year was given no free flights, but rather, the mother was gifted baby supplies worth $1000.
Is it stingy for an airline to not grant babies born on their flights free tickets for life? Whatever the outcomes may be for some, it looks like this baby born on Jet Airways has scored the rare gift of free tickets for a lifetime, and is sure to make his future friends and family very jealous!
