Baby Girl gets a Sweet Deal for Being Born 36,000 FT in the Air
Imagine that at the age of 12 you’re told you were born in a plane in mid-air. What would your reaction be?
That is what little Haven, a baby born in the middle of a flight from Dubai to Manila, will have to experience once her parents decide to tell her the reason she can fly for free for a very long time.
It was the first time the airline Cebu Pacific ever had to receive a baby on one of its planes.
Although the baby was born 5 weeks prematurely and it seems like it was a bad time considering they were thousands of feet above the ground, it actually couldn’t have been at a better moment.
There were a couple of nurses who were on board the flight and helped with the delivery of the infant. Also, two other babies were in the front row. Those parents had a suitcase full of baby clothes and necessities.
To top that off, after the airline got word of what happened, they awarded the infant with 1 million air miles, a privilege only for those who have spent around $108,310 on flights with the airline.
The cabin’s crew team leader Mark Martin said to baby Haven: “You are God’s miracle at 36,000 feet and we’re blessed to have been an instrument in your safe delivery. You will always be my most memorable passenger.”
The mother and baby are in a perfectly fine state, as the plane made an emergency landing in India to provide the mother and Haven further medical assistance and care.
