    Exclamation An Airline Asked Passengers What They Wanted for Christmas . . . and the Presents Were Waiting for T

    An Airline Asked Passengers What They Wanted for Christmas . . . and the Presents Were Waiting for Them When They Landed



    HIGHLIGHTS: The Canadian airline WestJet recently asked passengers before takeoff what they wanted for Christmas. And when they landed, the presents came out on the CONVEYOR BELT at the baggage claim . . . wrapped and everything. They'd gotten 150 volunteers to actually go out and buy the stuff people requested . . . including tablets, free airline tickets, and a 50-inch TELEVISION.


    FULL STORY: The Canadian airline WestJet recently set up a "virtual Santa" station at two different airports, where passengers and their kids could talk to a video screen and tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas.


    So people did it because they didn't have anything better to do while they waited for their flight. But when they landed and got to the baggage claim, the presents came out on the conveyor belt . . . wrapped . . . with their NAMES on them.


    It turns out that while they were in the air, the airline had gotten 150 volunteers to go from store to store and actually BUY the stuff people asked for.


    And some of the presents were AWESOME. One kid got an Android tablet, several people got flights home for the holidays, and one family got a 50-inch BIG SCREEN TV.


    Of course, other people didn't realize they'd actually be GETTING what they asked for, and didn't go BIG enough with their requests. One guy asked for socks and underwear, and that's exactly what he got. Still, he seemed pretty happy with it.


    The airline set up a bunch of hidden cameras, so you can check out all the reactions on YouTube.
