Rather than bag fees or lost luggage, over 250 airline passengers at airports in Toronto and Hamilton received a “Christmas miracle” from WestJet.
WestJet, an airline based in Calgary (Canada), first set up a virtual Santa who asked various passengers what they wanted for Christmas via a live video feed. “Ho, ho, ho!” Santa belted out.
He would know each passenger’s name after the boarding passes were scanned at the kiosk, enabling him to surprise children and adults alike.
Some asked for toys, others for clothes, while one couple jokingly asked for a really big flat-screen TV. It was all good fun and resulted in some laughs.
And that was it — or so they thought.
While the passengers’ flights were in the air, 175 WestJet volunteers ran out and frantically gathered the list of gifts the people had asked Santa for. As in, all of them.
Marketing, yeah...but dang classy marketing!
My Christmas wish from WestJet ?
... I want my damn lost luggage back.
I'll bet the socks and underwear guy was wishing he'd asked for something else! lol
I wonder if anyone wished for world peace...
