The adults played along filled with holiday spirit, never realizing what was waiting for them. On the other end of their flight, employees were hard at work making their Christmas wishes a reality. WestJet employees, headed out to stores and fulfilled all the Christmas wishes that were shared on the WestJet check-in portal. When the jet landed, each person who shared their wish had their respective gift waiting for them. My coworker Sam Tabar , who participated in sharing wishes, said it was an awesome experience.
A young boy by the name of Cohen requested a Choo Choo train, and he got just that. Santa even made a special appearance to share in the joy. Scarves, tablets, flights home for the holiday, socks and snowboards, and televisions were all delivered.
Some customers, so amazed by the fulfillment of their Christmas wishes burst into tears. One woman who requested a flight home for the holidays hugged Santa as tears ran down her face.
This is not the first year that WestJet has pulled off a Christmas miracle. They’ve fulfilled the wishes of customers, and individuals in impoverished nations for the last two years.
Christmas miracles are recorded by WestJet staff. Last years video was viewed 36 million times on YouTube, and this years video has amassed 39 million views since it was uploaded on December 8th.
