A United Airlines Captain caught wind that his son was flying home on a military charter serviced by United and made arrangements to pilot the flight.
Sneaking onboard, he had a FA distract his son and then stepped up behind him.
“I made my way behind him and asked, ‘First Lieutenant Lopes, what are you doing on my aircraft?’ When he turned around we embraced for as long as I could hold him. I cannot express the emotions I felt holding my son after not seeing him for so long.”
