A mother traveling alone with her three small children had difficulty making the comfort of its youngest, which led to a stewardess offering a helping hand, or two.
Parents of young children know that extended air travel can be exasperating for the little ones, what a Hawaiian Airlines flight attendant thoughtful gesture all the more sweet.
Passenger Rachel Yuen Nihi told KHON2 that during a recent late-night flight to Los Angeles, a mother traveling alone with her three small children had difficulty making the comfort of her youngest, a “crying toddler, tossing and turning for 45 minutes.

“A few for her to continue running around; giving her a stink eye. As if they were intentionally trying to hinder. I looked at the woman in front turn around and snicker something to her children and all I could think was: ‘You wait until the belt sign comes off,'” she wrote on Facebook.
Yuen Nihi, who was traveling with her husband, without their children, felt frustrated and was about to give the rude passenger a piece of her mind when a crew member intervened.
“Just before I could get out of my chair … a flight attendant runs over and asked to hold her son. The mother was reluctant, shy and at her wits’ end. They had tried for at least 45 minutes, and nothing worked,” Yuen Nihi wrote. “The toddler reached and the stewardess rocked him … up and down the aisle until he finally gave in. This is true Aloha spirit.”

“#HawaiianAirlines you should be proud of the to hire people that go beyond the call of duty and tell the world that kindness is not uncommon. I don’t have her name, but I am sure that someone knows who she is. To that flight attendant, thank you for your kindness. It was all around that flight. You gave a mother a moment to breathe and you have no idea how priceless this was for everyone to see. Mahalo Nui!”

KHON2 later turned out to be the angelic Hawaiian Airlines flight attendant as Gina Reyes. A mother of four and former surrogate mother, Reyes told the outlet that they are already a flight attendant for almost three years and it is always comforting babies on long flights.
“I saw a place where I could help you. I was rocking and singing to him. I was singing lullabies to him,” Reyes said. “I think it’s nothing more than what most of us at Hawaiian Airlines. That is our love and we go on our passengers.”
