72-year-old Cynthia Heck was completing her safety demonstrations on a Southwest Airlines flight when her fellow flight attendant made an announcement on the speaker, saying, “Does everyone see this sweet little lady wearing the life vest? That’s my grandma. So everyone better be extra nice to her.” 24-year-old Hannah followed in her grandmother’s footsteps to become a flight attendant at Southwest, and the pair has been able to fly together a handful of times. Cynthia was even able to pin on her granddaughter’s wings at graduation and surprised Hannah on her first ever flight as an attendant in 2022. The two have formed a special bond working together and have gotten heartwarming responses from passengers on board the flights they share.
