Some people will go to extraordinary lengths to spend time with their loved ones over the festive season.

Flight attendant Pierce Vaughan couldnít be home for Christmas so her dad decided he would go and spend time with her instead.

Hal Vaughan bought a ticket on every one of her flights over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

His amazing gesture was shared on social media by a passenger who sat next to him during one of the flights.

Pierce Vaughan later wrote that her dad did indeed make it onto every one of her six flights over the two days - even flying one leg first class.

It is the season for generous gestures.
