A photo of a pilot going above and beyond for a passenger is a breath of fresh air given recent airline horror stories.
A photo shared on Instagram show a Finnair pilot feeding a baby while aboard a flight as a passenger.
A member of the flight crew shared the photo on Instagram, where it quickly went viral, getting more than 1,000 likes.
According to the post, a mother was travelling with her four boys, and two of them were just babies.
“Naturally one cannot travel with two babies on one’s lap, so we had to solve the dilemma of missing lap, otherwise it would have been a no go for mom and the kids,” read the post.
Capt. Tom Nystrom was on the flight as a passenger and happily stepped in.
“I have children on my own,” Nystrom told Inside Edition. “So it came naturally to me to help this customer with her babies.”
Today we had a mother on board travelling with four little boys. Two of the boys were just babies. Naturally one cannot travel with two babies on one's lap, so we had to solve the dilemma of missing lap, otherwise it would have been a no go for mom and the kids. Luckily we had our positioning crew on board and wonderful Tom didn't hesitate one second when I asked him to take the task of being the extra-lap. Don't you find them quite adorable! ❤ #airlinecrew #positioning #extrachores #babyonboard #feelfinnair #finnairpilots #avgeek #service #adorable #serviceexcellence #cute #pilot #bestattitude #mycaptain #whentheresawilltheresaway #paxex
