Sadly, the majority of us will never experience the luxury of traveling in the first-class section of an airplane.

Instead...

We are likely to spend the rest of our traveling days, cramped and uncomfortable, in coach. It's depressing, I know.

First-class travel is usually reserved for the elite...

And the experience in itself is even more elite.

First-class travel offers a range of things that are simply impossible in coach...

Food and drink are waited on you hand and foot, fully reclined beds, showers... You won't even feel like you're on an airplane when you're traveling this way.

So, if first-class is that good...

Why doesn't everyone travel in this manner?

Well, the catch is...

First-class travel is ridiculously expensive.

Most of would have to completely empty our bank accounts...

And take out several loans to be able to afford a first-class ticket.

But, on some incredibly rare occasions...

Some people are able to experience the first-class life through the kindness and generosity of others.

It sounds like the most romantic love story, doesn't it?

Air Steward, Leah Amy, shared the heartwarming story onto her Facebook page...

Leah, from Manchester, U.K. is a newly qualified air hostess for Virgin Atlantic.

Her job takes her to many exotic locations...

And she gets to meet people from all walks of life. But nothing could have prepared her for what was about to happen on a long-haul flight from New York to London.

Leah witnessed something quite remarkable while working on a flight from New York to London.

"Over the hundreds of flights I’ve operated, I’ve had the pleasure of looking after footballers, supermodels and Hollywood movie stars but let me tell you about my two favorite passengers EVER! Jack and Violet." She wrote on her Facebook page.

2 passengers had struck an unlikely friendship in the airport...

"Her dream has always been to sit at the front, and Jack made that come true." Leah wrote.

Now, most of us will have no clue as to what Virgin Atlantic's first-class experience is like...

So here's Virgin's official video that documents the experience, just to give you an idea of what this kind gentleman gave up to fulfill Violet's dream.

Jack gave up his seat in first-class just so that Violet could enjoy the experience.

Leah explained, "Jack and his family purchased seats in our upper-class cabin for a flight home from New York, but when he got on board, Jack went and found Violet in economy and swapped seats with her."

As for Jack?

Well, he quietly sat in Violet's coach seat for the entire journey without making any sort of fuss. Leah wrote, "He then sat on the row of seats directly next to the economy toilets and never made a peep or asked for anything the rest of the flight. No fuss, no attention, literally did it out of the kindness of his own heart, no one asked him to."

Violet insisted on getting a photo with her knight in shining armor...

Leah wrote, "She said her daughter won’t believe her, and wanted a ‘selfie’ to prove it, but didn’t have a phone or an email address. These photos are getting sent in the post tomorrow." Just when you thought this story couldn't be any more wholesome.

And the crew couldn't resist getting a selfie...

Though, sadly, Jack's full identity is yet to be confirmed.
