Flying business class is a luxury many can’t afford. Yet nine-year-old Jasper Francis didn’t pay a penny to upgrade. The young Australian penned a letter to airline Jetstar, asking “whether kids are allowed to fly business class by themselves?”, Travel and Leisure reports.   

“I am saving my pocket money to get an upgrade on our flight: MEL-BKK on your Boeing 787 Dreamliner”, Jasper wrote, noting that he had already saved $85 for the upgrade. The letter was decorated with a hand-drawn Jetstar plane flying into the clouds.

Jetstar employees were so touched by the letter they decided to respond in a big way. They chipped together their Christmas $50 gift vouchers and sent them back to Jasper. Thanks to the boy’s initiative and the kindness of Jetstar employees, both Jasper and his dad will fly business class to Bangkok in summer this year.
