A Southwest Airlines flight attendant must have known that sometimes traveling moms need a break.
Savannah Blum told Inside Edition that she was relieved when airline attendant, identified only as Jessica, reached for her restless daughter on the second leg of a long trip from Austin, Texas, to their home in Reno, Nevada.
The mom admitted she was already flustered after shuffling around a last minute flight change with a fussy 19-month-old baby.
However, when her Reno-bound flight expectedly required her to change planes in Vegas, Jessica was there to greet Blum and her daughter, Britain, with open arms, reports NBC 4.
The flight attendant said, “I’m gonna be on the flight with you.”
Britain, who normally sleeps on the 2.5-hour trip, was wide awake and cranky. That’s when Jessica said, “Come here, baby. I got her, Mama. You go sit down.”
Once Blum was seated, she recorded the Southwest airline attendant going through the pre-takeoff routine holding Britain in her arms as she walked down the aisle.
