“It’s the feel-good story we need”: flight attendant gives solo travelling mum a “well-deserved break”

Pictures of a Frontier flight attendant going out of his way to calm a crying baby and give the mother a “well-deserved break” have gone viral, with some demanding to know if he is single.

According to a Facebook post from Jamie Applegate Hunter, the touching scene took place on a flight from Tyler to Denver.

“IDK how to make things go viral, but this flight attendant on Frontier Airlines from Tyler to Denver helped a mom calm her screaming baby, and it was PRECIOUS!!” Hunter wrote.

“It was her first time to fly solo! It’s the feel-good story we need today.”

Hunter’s post has since copped almost 5,000 likes on Facebook and 1.3 thousand shares.

“Can we talk about how good looking he is too?! Lol,” one commenter said.

Is he single? Does he have a brother? A cousin? Or even sister? 👀🤣🧐🤔” another said.

The flight attendant pictured, Joel O Paris Castro, shared Hunter’s post, adding the baby girl just wanted to explore the plane.

“Days like this make being a Flight attendant the most rewarding job ever!! She was a beauty hahahah. She just wanted to explore the plane!!” he said.

“When it came to the little girl, she looked like she just wanted to explore for a little while, and the mom looked like she could’ve used a well-deserved break, so I happily took the little girl from her hands and rocked her for a little while,” Castro told Fox News.

“I’ve always thought it takes a village to raise children …  And besides, I bet my mother could’ve used a couple of breaks when I was growing up.”

A spokesperson for Frontier told Travel Weekly the airline is known for its family-friendly nature.

“Frontier is known for being a family-friendly airline and we love that our team goes above and beyond to ensure everyone, including our littlest passengers, has an enjoyable flight.”
