VIRAL VIDEO: Passengers on delayed flight having a crazy 'sing-along'

Delayed passengers make the best of a bad situation with a sing-a-longFlight delays are never fun, but it seems passengers are coming up with innovative ways to entertain themselves in such situations.

Only a few days ago, I wrote about a delayed flight in China, where musicians onboard the aircraft decided to entertain their fellow passengers with an impromptu concert. A video of the incident went viral across the world – click here to watch the heart-warming footage.

Over in the US, passengers on a grounded Allegiant Air flight also lifted their spirits with a little musical outbreak. This time around, the travellers united in a sing-along to R. Kelly’s popular song “I Believe I Can Fly”.

Once again, the incident was filmed by a number of people on the flight, with video footage being picked up by international media.

“Passenger Dustin Kaelberer and his fellow Allegiant fliers were trapped in a travel nightmare by many accounts, stranded for five hours across two planes at Las Vegas McCarren Airport — in a situation so hot and terrible that a few passengers reportedly suffered vomiting spells, bloody noses and fainting,” wrote

“But others seemed to endure the ordeal more placidly, as the airplane’s “Believe I Can Fly” clip attests. The entire aisle is seen listening to the song on one dude’s speakers, before the chorus comes along and the plane belts out the “I believe I can fly, I believe I can touch the sky, I think about it every night and day, I spread my wings and fly away” part in unison. Remarkably, most were laughing as well.”

Other media reports have confirmed that Allegiant has offered passengers on the aircraft a $100 credit for future travel on the airline, while issuing the following statement:

“While we’re glad that our customers were able to make light of the delay by singing an R. Kelly song, we take these matters very seriously … Allegiant’s top priority is the safety of each of our passengers and crew members, and we will always take a delay to ensure the safety of all involved.”
