There’s nothing worse at the holidays than learning that your flight is delayed. With millions of people traveling and destinations that are WAY more appealing than the inside of an airport, finding out your plane is grounded for longer than you expected typically doesn’t bring out the pleasant side of folks.
That wasn’t the case for a group of passengers in Ontario this past week.
Rather than turning into raging travelers after learning their flight was delayed on Nov. 20, the whole terminal joined together in joyful harmony.
Literally—they pulled out their musical instruments and held an “impromptu kitchen party,” singing loud and proud to pass the time!
This is just one of the reasons why we are proud to be a Newfoundlander.

One older gentleman named Sheldon Thornhill pulled out his accordion, while another man, Sean Sullivan, grabbed his guitar. But it was 10-year-old Liam Corrigan who stole the show! The youngster joined the musicians and blew the whole terminal away with his youthful singing voice.
“We knew he was a good singer so he came over and did a couple of solos on his own so that made the occasion all that much sweeter, you know,” Sean told local news.
The WestJet captain was even singing along!
Michelle Sacrey Philpott was one of the passengers who delighted in the show put on by her fellow travelers, posting several videos to Facebook of the impromptu performances.
By the time they landed in St. Johns, the videos had been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
Of course, Michelle made sure to snap some selfies with the “talented musicians who entertained us at Toronto airport.”
These are the talented musicians that kept us entertained at Toronto airport.
