Santa-loving airline pranks delighted passengers with 'Christmas miracle'

Santa really exists, as these travellers discovered.

CANADIAN BUDGET AIRLINE WestJet created a jaw-dropping Christmas miracle for passengers on two flights this winter.

For the baffled air travellers, they were just regular flights to Calgary in western Canada from Toronto and Hamilton. Except for one thing.

Before they boarded, Santa asked them what they wanted for Christmas. (This little boy asked for a choo-choo train.)

While the flights were in the air, more than 150 WestJet staffers went on a wild shopping spree to buy everything that the passengers had asked for – documenting their missions on film.

They even wrapped the presents.

And then, as the tired travellers waited for their suitcases… this happened instead.

Each present was marked with a name, and contained the gift they’d asked for.

The kids were pretty happy.

And Santa appeared, obviously. There was laughter and tears. Because he IS real, after all.

The company said they would donate flights to a family in need if the YouTube video reached 200,000 views. It’s now approaching a million.

Most of all, we feel for this guy. He was just trying to make a joke.
