'Pilot turns plane around for elderly couple so they could visit dying grandson '

'A pilot has been praised for turning a plane around moments before take-off so an elderly couple could visit their dying grandson in hospital.

The pair found out their grandchild was in intensive care while on board an Abu Dhabi-bound plane taxiing towards a runway at Manchester airport.

After the pair told the crew, the pilot turned the plane back towards the gate while staff arranged for their luggage and a car so they could get to their ill grandson's bedside.

He died later that same night on March 31.'

Well done Etihad Airways.

United Airlines take note…

A great example for many other airlines or any business serving the public.
