Thanks to a kind gesture from a passenger prior to Christmas, Virgin Atlantic will be offering an upgrade to the oldest passenger on each of their flights through January 1st.

The airline took the idea from a passenger who, earlier this month, offered his business-class seat to an 88-year-old passenger named Violet who was traveling economy on their flight from London to New York.

The heart-felt gesture quickly went viral, with Virgin Atlantic sharing the feel-good story on social media.
Keeping pace with the festive spirit, the airline is expanding on the idea, announcing via Twitter, “This tale of Jack and Violet has warmed all our hearts this Christmas, and inspired us to spread the festive love. On behalf of us and @RichardBranson, complimentary upgrades will be offered to the most ‘seasoned’ customer on board all our flights from today until 1st Jan 2020.”
