Passengers at a Canadian airport got the surprise of a lifetime.

Canadian based West Jet Airlines asked all the passengers on one of it’s flights from Toronto to Calgary what they wanted for Christmas.

The passengers were asked to scan their boarding pass at this kiosk — where a virtual Santa appeared.

The passengers told Santa what they wanted – and while they were flying, West Jet Elves were making those Christmas wishes come true.

Airline employees, shopped and wrapped the gifts passengers asked for – and when the passengers landed those gifts came off the baggage carousel.

The airline gave away everything from socks and underwear, to electronics like tablets and a big screen TV.


A singing group stranded at the airport gives other travelers something to smile about.

The acapella group, Face Vocal Band, used some of the time they were stuck at DFW Airport to spread some Christmas cheer.

The group of six guys from Denver sang several carols in different places throughtout the airport.

In the video, one of them says, “When life gives you lemons — sing!”
