PETALING JAYA — Being in an aircrew is more than just serving passengers their meals and showing them to their seats.

A Lion Air flight attendant went the extra mile when he assisted a senior citizen passenger during mealtime by feeding her.

The elderly passenger was travelling from Surabaya to Palangkaraya on the Indonesian low-cost carrier.

Instagram user Armaini Imay, who was on the flight, captured the heart-warming gesture.

In the post, Ms Armaini said she was amazed to see the dedication of an aircrew member for patiently serving the elderly woman.

The anxious flyer initially refused to put on a seatbelt and asked to come back down from the aircraft.

“With such loving care, the flight attendant gave her a beverage, fed her gently as though she was his own mother and managed to coax her to wear a seatbelt in the end,” Ms Armaini observed.

Following the post, social media users praised the caring and sympathetic cabin crew member.

“Dear Lion Air flight attendant, whoever you are, you exemplify the perfect flight attendant,” chimed in @the4rel who shared the video on Twitter.

“Do you miss your mother? You’re so meticulous in helping this old lady.”

@the4rel’s 40-second clip has been viewed over 1.07 million times since Sunday, garnering over 50,600 retweets and 76,500 likes.

“My God, that smile on his face says everything. Bless you and your heart,” wrote @pasirrpantai.

Others like @ibnu_amien said the flight attendant’s kind actions served as a lesson to all to appreciate their mothers while they are still around. MALAY MAIL
