Dec. 26 (UPI) -- A father spent the Christmas holiday flying throughout the country to spend time with his flight attendant daughter.
Pierce Vaughan, a flight attendant for Delta, was scheduled to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so her father, Hal Vaughn, decided to join her on each of her flights.
"Dad's first trip using his benefits was a success! A special thanks to all of the patient, wonderful gate agents around the country and my perfect crew," Pierce Vaughn wrote on Facebook.
Her father was able to join her on every one of her flights and was also able to fly first class from Fort Myers, Fla., to Detroit.
The pair caught the attention of fellow passenger Mike Levy on one of the flights and he took the opportunity to snap a photo of the father and daughter.
"What a fantastic father!" Levy wrote. "Wish you both a very Merry Christmas!"
Pierce Vaughn shared Levy's post to show her mother the results of the trip and thanked him for capturing the moment.
"Shoutout to Mike Levy for being a great first class passenger & helping us to understand how cool this actually is!" she wrote.
