There are a million reasons as to why this story is so amazing.

The Philippine airline Cebu Pacific donated one million air mile points to a newborn who was the first to be delivered on one of its planes.

A Facebook post published by Missy Berberabe Umandal on Sunday describes the ordeal.

A woman near our seat gave birth to a healthy baby girl, on our flight from Dubai back to PH. We had to do an emergency landing in India to ensure the baby’s safety. All flight attendants, pilots, and passengers were very attentive too. Very lucky baby.. since she was born in a Cebu Pac plane, she is awarded 1,000,000 Get Go Points from theairline (STILL pretty much the equivalent of free flights for a lifetime, I mean she could be living in the plane if she wished).

The Guardian reports that the mother went into labor about four hours into the flight and five weeks before the expected due date.

The plane, which was scheduled to fly halfway from Dubai to Manila, stopped off in Hyberabad, India, so that the mother could receive medical assistance after the delivery.

According to Umandal, the baby and first-time mother are both healthy.

Let’s hope this doesn’t become a trend.
