Delayed flights are as much of an inconvenience for airline staff as they are for the passengers. This is probably why the staff at this Nola Southwestern boarding gate asked the passengers to sing if they need to ask a question.
At Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans, the staff and passengers got to witness some mind-blowing karaoke magic. Well they asked for it … and one guy took the matter rather “seriously.”
Traveler Mike Vadala posted a video of an anonymous passenger on his Facebook, saying, “So our gate at Nola Southwest required everyone who asked a question to sing. This guy went off.”
When the recording started, everyone was first amused by what he was actually doing. But almost 50 seconds later, they all eventually joined in the chorus of “No Diggity” by Blackstreet, turning it into a full-on concert—and the gate staff are seen dancing towards the end.
Being a performer that he is, he ended it with a classic mic drop. Or shall we say, “Intercom drop?”
The karaoke story was published on The Times-Picayune website, Nola.com. “A delightful—and we think very New Orleans—reminder that waiting in the airport can actually sometimes be a very good experience,” noted the website.
Now that is one way of easing the wait of the delay.
