Tracy Sharp lives with Down Syndrome. She always wanted to be a flight attendant, and last August she became one with the help of her “fairy godmother,” Southwest veteran flight attendant Vicki Heath. Now, Heath and Southwest are granting another wish of Sharp’s: to be a co-pilot.

Sharp’s time as a flight attendant was just the beginning of her Southwest adventures in August. In November, Sharp was invited to the Southwest Headquarters where she participated in the SWA winning spirit award, according to Heath. There she received a standing ovation from the crowd and got a private meeting with CEO Gary Kelley.

For her birthday in December, Heath met Sharp and her parents in Disneyland. The pair were also featured in Woman’s World magazine and the Southwest Airlines magazine.

Last week, Heath said, she met up with the family again in Disneyland to go to Club 33. On that trip, Sharp learned about her new adventure from Heath.

A United Airlines pilot helped a stranded college student from Hawaii by paying for her flight back to school after her plane was diverted. The heartwarming story was told in a video posted to United's YouTube page Friday, just in time for Father's Day. The video notes the stranded traveler, identified only as Kiana, is from Hawaii, and her own father was about 3,000 miles away. Kiana Coffin, 19, was traveling back to school at Pacific University in Oregon when bad weather caused her flight (on another airline) to divert to Seattle.
