Kathie Lee agreed with the doctors, saying Kim should be resting and not jet setting around the world. She also gave Kim some more advice after she read in the papers Kim has been working out more than usual because she is worried about not being able to bounce back after she has the baby.

Today Show: United Airlines Holds Plane, Helps Man Seeing Dying Mother

Kathie Lee and Hoda have been complaining about airlines for a long time, especially since the news that airlines will be allowing knives back on planes, but today they found a heartwarming story coming straight from an airline.

United Airlines apparently held a flight for a man after he was delayed on a flight and had to take another flight with a connection. He was trying to get from San Francisco to Lubbock, Texas to be by his mother’s side in her final moments. When he arrived in Houston he had to traverse the huge airport to get to the connecting flight but he didn’t have the time. He still made an effort to make it and when he arrived the plane was still there waiting for him. Apparently the people at the first gate told the flight attendants at the other gate what this man was trying to do. They let the passengers know what was happening and everyone waited without any complaining.

Kathie Lee and Hoda thought it worked out because the airline informed the people why they were waiting, and they didn’t keep them in the dark like they would normally do, just letting people sit in their seats wondering why the plane isn’t moving. As Kathie Lee put it, “it is like a relationship. They fall apart without communication.”

Hoda said in New York City you can get delivery for anything, even just a single candy bar, but it still means you should tip.

Would you have tipped more? And how much would you tip? Is it always the suggested 18 percent or would you tip higher or lower?
