Sometimes, it pays to be in the right place at the right time.
KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – A baby boy who made a surprise arrival on board an AirAsia flight this week will be given free flights for life with the budget carrier, as will his mother, the airline said Friday.
AirAsia said 31-year-old passenger Liew Siaw Hsia went into labour on Wednesday’s flight from the northern island of Penang to Kuching on Borneo island.
The aircraft made an emergency diversion to the Malaysian capital but the baby arrived just before landing, delivered by a doctor who was on board and who was assisted by the airline’s flight attendants…
A nice gesture from AirAsia. Now if any legacies matched, I bet we’d see a lot more "surprise" births at 30,000 feet. 😉
