Holiday travel can be fraught with delays, cranky tired people, long lines and lots of bad attitudes. So imagine who refreshing it was when song and dance broke out while people waited for a delayed flight headed to Newfoundland.
The spontaneous "kitchen party" broke out with traditional Newfoundland songs when musicians began playing an accordion and a guitar.
Other passengers filmed the celebration. It was posted on social media and by the time the plane finally landed at its destination a group of new internet stars were born.
