An airline went the extra mile to make sure a passenger’s lost wedding ring safely arrived back to her.
Brit Morin lost her engagement and wedding rings last week traveling somewhere between New York and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, she said on Twitter.
A United Airlines lost and found agent found the rings, which are welded together, Feb. 8 at a departure gate at Newark Liberty International Airport. Morin’s family told the airline she believes her wedding and engagement rings fell out of the bag they were in before boarding her United flight. The rings were then handed to Captain Jim Moorey, who kept them with him while piloting a flight from Newark to San Francisco International Airport, where they were picked up Feb. 15, United told USA TODAY. The flight distance between the two airports is 2,565 miles.

“A @United gate agent found it, put it in a safe, and then gave it to a pilot to HAND DELIVER it back to me in SF,” Morin said on Twitter Monday. “I have a newfound faith in humanity and airlines.”
She said she took the rings off while filming a TV segment earlier in the day. She’s a regular guest on Good Morning America.
“So happy I was able to return this ring to you,” Moorey said in a handwritten note that was attached to the ring.
“This is great to see our employees being recognized for their care for our customers,” United Airlines said in a statement.
