Few people take flight delays lightly. They often mean missing connecting flights, keeping families waiting at the gate, and just general frustration and chaos.
But it seems not everyone feels the seething anger we do when delayed.
Yesterday, a bunch of cheery passengers found themselves stuck in Toronto after their WestJet to St John’s was delayed, so one of the passengers, Sheldon Thornhill, pulled out his guitar and began a waiting lounge singalong.
As per everything that happens in 2017, it was recorded, put on the internet and has since gone viral.
And to be honest, the whole thing is utterly charming.
Together with his fellow delayees, Thornhill busted out Canadian folk songs with another muso passenger Sean Sullivan much to the crowds’ delight.
Following the blessed singalong, Sullivan revealed to CBC News that this wasn’t the first time the pair had entertained people stymied in transit.
“My buddy with the accordion, Sheldon… I’m a bit shyer than he is”
“Anytime we’re gathered around airports like that, he’s often taken out his accordion just out of the blue and started playing for people.”
