According to a Facebook post from Karen Barry, the flight was heavily populated with politicians on both sides of the aisle.

The get-well card read:

"The headlines have it wrong. They should read: Brain Tumor Diagnosed with John McCain."

"Your American Airlines family stands with you and wishes you a quick recovery."

The 80-year-old McCain was recently diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer, according to doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, who had removed a blood clot above his left eye on July 14.
