A Korean mom on a 10-hour flight from Seoul to San Francisco is raising the bar after surprising passengers by handing out goodie bags to apologize in advance for bringing her 4-month-old baby Junwoo on board.
Dave Corona, a passenger on that flight, posted about the incredibly kind gesture on Facebook.
“On a ten hour flight from Seoul, Korea to San Francisco, a mother handed out more than 200 goodie bags filled with candy and ear plugs, in case her 4-month-old child cried during the flight. A very touching gesture by the mother, but as you know when you have kids expect the unexpected. Not a peep out of the kid.”
The mother had made enough goodie bags for up to 200 passengers in her area of the plane, was thoughtful enough to include ear plugs, and had the attention to detail to print the nice note in English.
The note reads:
“Hello, I’m Junwoo and I’m 4 months old.
Today, I am going to the U.S.
with my mom and grandmom to see my aunt.
I’m a little bit nervous and scary because it’s my first flight in
which means that I may cry or make too much noise.
I will try to go quietly, though I can’t make any promises..
Please excuse me.
So my mom prepared little goodie bag for you! it
has some candies and earplugs.
Please use it when it’s too noisy because of me.
Enjoy your trip. Thank you ;’)”
Commenters were quick to praise the thoughtfulness of the Korean mom while one woman added that perhaps passengers could make parents and their children feel more welcome on flights:
