Yeah, if airlines could just include the cast of a hit musical on every flight that would be great.

The latest bout of serenading in the airline world comes from Virgin Atlantic (h/t Mashable), which posted the following video featuring none other than Sir Richard Branson and the cast of the UK rendition of “Motown the Musical.”

While making its way to Detroit, this Virgin Atlantic flight blossomed from a simple airplane humming with the monotony of its engines into an amphitheater ringing with the cacophony of sweet music.

And, if that weren’t enough, Branson danced too:

Here at TravelPulse we love a good impromptu concert, like the one which recently took place at New York’s LaGuardia airport when the casts of Lion King and Aladdin battled each other.

In both cases the usual doldrums of waiting for a delayed flight or sitting patiently in a cramped seat dissolve away, replaced with the smiles of passengers who are instantaneously turned into audience members.

We all enjoy free beverage service, and those tiny packages of peanuts are always a tremendous in-flight joy.

However, if an airline could get on complimentary Broadway musical service that would be very much appreciated.
