    I know that flying generally sucks but this move by Canadian airline WestJet was pretty freaking awesome.

    I flew WestJet out here to the West Coast last Wednesday and going back to Toronto tomorrow. Why couldn't I have been on THAT flight? ;)

    That's nothing. On Aeroflot they sometimes let kids fly the airplane. How cool is that?

    Nice pull.

    That was the inspiration for the Elvis Costello song "Daddy Can I Turn This?"

    Whoever thought of this is a PR genius. I've barely heard of WestJet, and I've seen this plastered all over Facebook today.

    Bet "underwear and socks" guy was kicking himself when he saw the TV and tablets.

    WestJet has produced some good April fools videos as well. Not sure how they are going to top this one next Xmas though.

    Yup, you nailed it. And the family that asked for the 3D TV was happy as hell.

    Great PR stunt.
