However, a baby born on a 1990 British Airways flight only received a free upgrade to first class for her 18th birthday.

The flight was on its way to Kochi from Damman, Saudi Arabia, when the woman went into premature labor, causing the flight to be diverted to Mumbai. After the announcement, a female nurse travelling to Kerala, named Wilson, volunteered to help deliver the child along with the airline staff.

Both the mother and the baby were safely delivered and rushed to the hospital on reaching Mumbai.

The plane touched down at 9.12am and mother and baby were taken to nearby Holy Spirit Hospital, where they are reported to be doing well.

A baby boy just hit the airline jackpot after Jet Airways awarded him free flight tickets for life - all because he was born mid-flight. The cabin crew, accompanied by the trained paramedic on board, provided medical assistance to the expectant mother.

The real kicker, though, is that the little boy now has free flights for life on the airline. The Boeing 737 carried 162 guests and six crew members during the flight.

In April, the passengers and crew of a Turkish Airlines flight welcomed an unexpected little passenger when a baby girl was born mid-flight at 42,000 feet.

Indian private full-service carrier, Jet Airways, has announced two additional flights to Mumbai, India on June 22 and 23 in response to the current scenarion in the region.

More than five infants were born on commercial flights in the a year ago, but they don't all come away with a golden ticket for free travel for the rest of their lives.
