#4: WestJet Christmas Flash Mob
We could not compile a list of airline holiday videos without this flash mob. In 2012, WestJet turned a quiet gate area into the North Pole by surprising 166 passengers that were waiting to board a Calgary-Toronto red-eye flight with a little Christmas cheer. Since the video was posted on YouTube, it has accumulated over 1.6 million views, and it has played a big roll in helping make WestJet famous for its holiday videos where it gives back to the community and spreads a little Holiday cheer.
#3: Southwest Flight Attendant Jingle Bells
It seems safe to say that Jingle Bells is the most well-known, or very close, Christmas tune. Now, there are a few different variations of the tune from the mention of Batman and Robin Hood to Jingle Bell Rock, but one Southwest flight attendant put together his own version. Be sure to check out the channel to hear his version of “Up on the Housetop.”
#2: Cebu Pacific Flight Attendants Dance the Aisles
Apparently, the only thing that Cebu Pacific flight attendants want for Christmas is “you,” and if you think about it, without “you” the customer then they wouldn’t have anybody on their planes! Now make sure your seatbelt is fastened, and enjoy!

WestJet spread its wings across ten time zones, hit the streets in 12 cities and visited 38 airports to complete 12,000 random acts of kindness in 24 hours earlier this month. Some of the random acts of kindness included picking up someone’s tab at a restaurant to giving out two roundtrip tickets to Vancouver to Ellen’s audience to sending an entire family on vacation to Hawaii.
Bonus: WestJet Real-Gift Giving and Blue Santa Bloopers
In 2013, WestJet took its special Holiday videos to a whole new level when with Blue Santa and his WestJet employee elves delivered gifts to passengers on a WestJet flight in real time. Since the video first debuted, it has had over 40 million views on YouTube. We cannot share our top five holiday videos without including this one!
