As flight attendants or airlines staff in general, we miss many family holidays.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we spent those holidays with our loved ones?
Father’s Day is one of those special occasions and British Airways made sure some families will be together to celebrate it.
The airline staffed a flight from London to San Diego with father-son and father-daughter teams — who all work for British Airways.
None of the pairs had ever worked together before.
Entire Flight With Dads And Their Children
British Airways Captain Martin Ewins got a chance to fly with his daughter Rachel.
“For 20 years my daughter watched me fly around the world and I’m so proud that I’ve inspired her to do the same as cabin crew. I was incredibly proud of her, and from the moment we stepped onto the plane we weren’t father and daughter, but two members of a flying crew getting ready to operate a flight.”
Cabin crew Lois Mackerness shared the flight with her dad, David, who inspired her to get into the business.
“Growing up seeing the pride and passion my Dad has for caring for his customers really encouraged me to work hard and make sure that I love what I do too. It was great to work on board together. I picked up some of his top tips that he’s learnt through his many years of flying.”
