He risks being late at the father-daughter dance because the plane is late: passengers let him off first
March 17, 2020
For their children, they are willing to do anything - especially when they are still young, parents try to be present as much as possible, making sure they don't miss any birthday or other important event. Mike Good is the father of two beautiful twins, with whom he should have shared an important scholastic step: the "dad-daughter" dance. The only problem is that Mike was not in town that day and would have to take a flight to be able to go home and hug his family. The man left on a flight from Nashville, Tennessee, to arrive in Charlotte, North Carolina (USA), but the journey was not as smooth and trouble free as he had imagined.

It was supposed to be a rather short flight, but Mike hadn't taken account of the terrible weather forecast for those days. Due to a storm, the flight was delayed - a delay that Mike could not afford to have, since it would certainly be late for the important meeting with his daughters. The airline successfully organised a seat on a flight that was in advance, but in the meantime this meant Mike lost the original seat he had chosen; now, Mike would have to sit in the last seat available, right down the aisle, in the tail of the plane.
"I was sure I couldn't do it. I knew it would take me 30 minutes to get off the plane and another 30 minutes to drive from the airport to my daughters' school," said Mike.
Before leaving, Mike exchanged a few words with the flight attendant, who had understood the importance of the daughter-dad dance and, of her own free will, took the situation in hand to help the man. Once landed, the woman invited all passengers to stay in their seats, to get Mike off before everyone could start recovering their luggage. The reason? A very important parent-child appointment that the man certainly could not delay. All the passengers stood aside, keeping the aisle free and applauding the man as he hurried to get off the plane.
Mike managed not to miss the magical moment with his daughters, despite having arrived 50 minutes late, and that's really what matters.
