Found this while looking at FlightAware this afternoon. To graciously steal the summary:

Two elderly ladies fly for the first time in their lives. Their childlike wonder is touching. Kleenex alert: the video may even produce some wet eyes, even among the most seasoned and cynical of us. Certainly it's a heartfelt reminder of the most basic reasons many of us fly. Enjoy!
Video is below, courtesy of Vodafone. This should serve to sometimes forget about what troubles you and remind yourself about not just the joy of flying, but the simple joys of life. And +1 on the Kleenex Alert.

Enjoy.

The problem is they flew them on a private jet. So if they ever travel again commercially, their expectations are going to be way too high and they will be sorely disappointed. They should've flown them on Ryanair so they could experience the worst air travel has to offer, so their next experience has nowhere to go but up :p

There is no problem.

They will likely never fly again. This was their one chance. They loved it.

It's all good.

But they had to fly again. They had to get back home from Barcelona! ;)
