A fellow passenger recorded several videos of the performance and by the time the plane landed, they had gone viral.
Michelle Sacrey Philpott was traveling on the same flight and recorded the performance on Facebook live. Her videos got thousands of views.
In Newfoundland, dancing and singing together is an important part of the culture.
A “Newfoundland kitchen party” is a term for a popular type of party in Newfoundland where family, friends, and neighbors come together to sing, dance, and eat together.
Newfoundlanders are also known for their hospitality.
It’s no surprise to see a group of Newfoundlanders coming together like this. The region is so famous for its welcoming communal spirit that it even inspired a Broadway musical!
Just this year the play Come From Away debuted on Broadway, chronicling the true story of how on September 11, 2001, 38 planes were diverted to Gander, Newfoundland when U.S. airports closed.
Residents of the town provided food and shelter in their own homes to 7,000 stranded passengers.
This could be the best impromptu travel inconvenience performance since "Home Alone."
Remember John Candy’s polka band in the back of the moving truck?!
Anyone else up for a trip to Newfoundland?
Now we kind of want to go to one of those kitchen parties. They look like fun!
