Southwest Airlines Adds Live Concerts To In-Flight Amenities (Mosh Pits In The Sky?)
If you've ever flown an American airline, it's a struggle. You have to wait in long security lines, only to walk three miles to your gate, to wait in another line to board, when you're finally allowed to board, you find yourself in another line trying to get onto the plane, then you have to make sure there is enough space for your carry-on and get your ass to your seat. You pray there are no screaming babies. Flying, it's not the best.
But Southwest Airlines has a solution. Rather than fixing all of that, they have something better. Concerts in the sky! The Current reports:
Southwest Airlines has finalized an agreement with Warner Music Nashville that will expand the airline's series of pop-up in-air concerts. Southwest has been hosting in-air shows occasionally since 2011, and Billboard reports that the series "has only grown in popularity over the past six years, as Southwest passengers hope that their flight will be one of the lucky ones to feature a sure-to-go-viral performance."
To celebrate, country star Devin Dawson performed on a flight from Nashville to Philadelphia.
Is this a good idea? I'm leaning towards no. People who go on flights want quiet, so they could read, listen to music or, most importantly, sleep!
But hey, if this is going to be a thing, I call for equal opportunity. Let's get Meshuggah up in the sky for the ultimate sky mosh pit.
