An Airline And Santa Claus Gave These Passengers A Heartwarming Early Christmas PresentSubmitted by barracuda_trader on Thu, 12/12/2013 - 02:19
Canadian Airline Westjet gave passengers something to believe in this holiday season.
The airline came up with a brilliant holiday promotion that placed a digital Santa Claus at an airport and asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas. While the passengers were in the air, Westjet workers sprinted to nearby stores at the destination and bought gifts.
Here's how the heartwarming promotion worked:
A giant wrapped gift with a large screen stood near the boarding area where passengers milled around, waiting to get on their flight to Calgary. The message on the screen encouraged people to scan their boarding passes.
Once they did, they were face-to-face with the jolly icon, who knew their names and asked what they wanted for Christmas.
