Passengers get free Microsoft tablet and meet Santa on Virgin Atlantic flight
The Children who flew Virgin Atlantic flight VS011 from Heathrow to Boston this past weekend, had a flight they never will forget. Upon boarding the plane, each passenger received a Windows powered tablet. The kids on board used their slates to track Santa's annual journey via the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Track Santa service.

As the plane passed by the coast of Greenland, projections on the ceiling of the cabin made it appear as though Santa had landed on the top of the plane. Saint Nick then walked through the aisles of the plane, talking with the kids and taking selfies with the passengers.

The kids then watched as Santa prepared to take off so that he could resume his journey. Santa's appearance was the result of a partnership between Virgin Atlantic and Microsoft. Both companies worked together to offer something that the children on board will talk about forever. You can watch all of the magic by clicking on the video below. And if you find yourself shedding a tear or two, it's perfectly okay. It just means that you're human.
