There isn't anything worse than the fear you feel when you think you may have arrived at the airport without your passport. That fear is multiplied by a thousand when you realize you have actually arrived without your passport.

And this nightmare was the reality for one recently married woman as she attempted to embark on her honeymoon with her new husband.

But one hero flight attendant was not about to let the couple's start to married life be marred by disaster. Oh no. Not on his watch.

Lawyrn Fellwock was on a Delta flight from Detroit to San Juan, Puerto Rico, where she would set sail on a luxurious cruise with her husband Joe. Only it looked like it would be a cruise that would head for the high seas without the new Mr and Mrs. Fellwock when it turned out Lawyrn didn't have her passport.

Lawyrn was, understandably, inconsolable when she realised her honeymoon would go no further than the US island, lovely though San Juan is. But sometimes, your luck is in, and on this day, thanks to Delta employee Dusty Dills, there was no way that cruise was disembarking without the Fellwocks.

Dills offered to pick the passport up in Detroit before handing it to a fellow Delta employee in Atlanta. They would then make their way from Georgia to Puerto Rico and hand it to the newlyweds and save the day and their honeymoon.

Speaking about the rescue mission on Delta's official website, Dills said, "It's so easy to go throughout the day and do what's expected of you at work, but (I always try to ask myself) 'what can I do to make that difference in someone's life?'"

Delta also shared the story to its official Facebook page, which led to a deluge of positive feedback in the comments section of the post.

A grateful quote from Lawryn was shared within the post, where she said, "We were so touched and grateful - a renewed faith in humanity was the best wedding gift. We owe our post-wedding bliss to Dusty and the Delta family!"

And Dusty's big adventure went appreciated in the replies too, with one Facebook user replying, "THIS is the kind of news story I love to see in my feed!!" and other commenting, "Only Delta would do this! I’m not surprised. Just pleased that they keep doing it in so many ways. Their goal is to keep their passengers totally happy. I am! That’s why I ONLY fly Delta!"

The heartwarming replies didn't stop there though, with another person saying, "I love Delta, Delta pilots and staff" and one of Dusty's friends adding, "That’s my buddy Dusty!! Big heart and always willing to help! Delta and Dusty, just good people."

Not all heroes wear capes.
