A father wanted to spend Christmas with his daughter. Despite the fact that she had to work as a flight attendant over the skies of the United States on Tuesday did not stop them from being together.

According to a now viral Facebook post, a man identified as "Hal" purchased airline tickets to ensure he would have a seat on every single flight his daughter worked during Christmas.

“I had the pleasure of sitting next to Hal on my flight back home," Hal's seatmate Mike Levy wrote on Facebook. "His daughter Pierce was our flight attendant who had to work over Christmas . Hal decided he would spend the holiday with her. So, he is flying on each of her flights today and tomorrow around the country to spend time with his daughter for Christmas. What a fantastic father! Wish you both a very Merry Christmas!”

Pierce Vaughan responded to Levy's post, thanking him for "helping us to understand how cool this actually is!"

Vaughan said that her father was even given an upgrade on a flight from Fort Meyers, Florida, to Detroit.

Vaughan said that they had four legs of travel so far. She added that the two will travel twice together on Thursday.
