Pilot & Flight Attendant Walk Up To Piano — Tired Travelers Light Up With Fun Show.

As passengers sat waiting for their flights in one of Heathrow Airport’s terminals, an airline pilot and flight attendant moved inconspicuously toward a piano.

The two were set to board a flight to Bermuda from London, England, but had some time to kill. No one noticed when the pilot sat down on the stool. However, heads quickly turned when the man began to play a “boogie-woogie” tune. The pilot’s surprisingly skilled playing might have been enough to baffle the airport crowd, but then, something delightful happened.

As a slew of stunned onlookers gawked, the flight attendant broke into a tap dance routine!

Some travelers were pretty confused, while others pulled out their phones to film the impromptu performance.


After the pilot and stewardess wrapped up their song, the small crowd they’d amassed cheered them “offstage.” But if you think they were shy about starting their little show, they slink off just as quietly, only saying thanks and “Happy New Year” to some nearby spectators.

What a wonderful way to entertain tired travelers!
