Passengers traveling on Christmas eve miss a lot of moments which they would have wanted to spend with their family or friends. So, travelers often look glum as the clock ticks closer to midnight.

Just before midnight, passengers of a fully booked WestJest flight were waiting glumly for boarding. As the seconds ticked, they are probably thinking about what their families will be doing at the stroke of midnight.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

When the clock at the lounge struck 11:30 PM, the passengers were informed they had another option for their flight. At first, they thought their original flight was delayed yet they were merely told that an express flight is being readied for them.

Watch their reaction and where the express flight takes them in this wonderful video:
