Tomorrow, Thien Nhan and his parents Mai Anh and Nghinh are flying from Hanoi to Seattle via Taipei. Greig Craft, who is organizing their US trip, called the EVA Air office in Hanoi today to confirm that all was in order. The ticket agent informed him that they had wanted to upgrade the family to Business Class, but unfortunately the plane was fully booked. Aware that a long stopover in Taipei followed by a trans-Pacific flight would be rough on 2-year-old Thien Nhan, the Vietnamese staff of EVA's Hanoi office had chipped in to pay for a transit room in Taipei airport for the family. We continue to be amazed by people's kindness and generosity towards Thien Nhan!
