In-flight entertainment can always be kind of a drag. You're packed in to a seat 35,000 feet in the air, sipping on a paper cup full of Coca Cola, struggling through your third episode of Two and A Half Men, just counting the seconds until the wheels hit the ground. Luckily, the folks in charge of entertainment over at Southwest Airlines felt the pain of the road weary traveler and decided to give them a special treat as part of their in-flight entertainment. That treat came in the form of Mat Kearney, who treated the passengers of a Boeing 737 to a concert miles in the sky, somewhere over Illinois. Kearney whipped out his acoustic guitar and performed over the plane's loudspeaker, much to the pleasure of the surprised passengers. Smiles, and smart phones, were everywhere as Kearney kicked out the jams. Check it out below.
This special performance was part of Southwest's partnership with Aloft Hotels for Live In The Vineyard, a three day event bringing food, wine, and music together. If you're flying Southwest during the first week in November, keep a lookout for the Aloft Live In The Vineyard decal on the plane. You might just be treated to an exclusive concert on board. Talk about a new kind of mile high club.
Or you could just enjoy a little Mat Kearney rocking out on our roof. Boy's choice.
