Delayed flight turns into Newfoundland kitchen party at Pearson International Airport

Delayed flight turns into Newfoundland kitchen party at Pearson International Airport

A man with an accordion and another with a guitar led an impromptu sing-along in the waiting area of Toronto's Pearson Airport Monday night, where passengers were awaiting a delayed flight to Newfoundland and Labrador. The WestJet Attendant announced she had a little bad news, that the flight was being delayed by another 20 minutes.

"Anytime we're gathered around airports like that, he's often taking out his accordion just out of the blue and starts playing for people", he said.

A few dozen people joined in singing a handful of songs such as Grey Foggy Day, Sweet Forget Me Not, and Music and Friends.

This wasn't just an affair for the old guns, the young ones also showed off their talents, particularly 10 year old Liam Corrigan who proudly stood at the front.

Michelle Sacrey Philpott, who filmed several minutes of the party, told CTVNews.ca in a telephone interview that it was "just Newfoundlanders having fun, enjoying each other's company".

"We knew he (accordion player Sheldon Thornhill) is 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", Mr Sullivan said. By the time the flight was up and running and landed in St.John's, the video had hundreds of thousands of views.
