Going to Hawaii is a dream vacation, but flying there for free? That’s even better.
And 33 members of Sam Pratt’s family were treated to a trip to Hawaii thanks to his frequent flyer miles.
He had amassed more than a million airline miles on Southwest Airlines and was able to use them to take his extended family, ranging in age from two to 72 to the tropical islands.
Pratt says his relatives celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and a gender reveal party on their getaway, but the biggest thing they had to celebrate? Pratt recently found out the cancer he had been battling for a year was in remission.
“I couldn’t think of a better gift to give than travel because not only do you get the travel but you get the memories that go with that,” Pratt says. “This is a dream. It truly, truly is.”
