While Other Airlines Beat Up Passengers, Air India Beats Dhols & Wins Everyone's Hearts


If you're Punjabi, you know that any celebration is incomplete with dhols. No matter what the occasion is, just get some dhol walas and there, everything is just 100 percent better.

Air India also had the same idea and took the celebration to a whole another level. The airline resumed non-stop flights between Amritsar and Birmingham after eight long years, and to mark this very special occasion, they went a very desi route and won over everyone on the flight.

All of the passengers flying from Britain to India had a very pleasant surprise right before takeoff. Sending off everyone in full desi style, Air India arranged for a special dhol performance, much to the delight of everyone.

If you think the joy from the video is not infectious, then you're wrong. Even I had a smile while watching the video, and seeing everyone enjoying right before a long and tedious flight was quite a nice thing. But, only if they could have continued this throughout the flight, it would have been the prefect inflight entertainment. Moreover, it would have drowned the sounds of that token crying baby that each and every flight ever seem to have.

“The terminal came alive (on Tuesday) with Indian drummers and dancers weaving their way through passengers who were joined by Members of Parliament, business leaders and members of the Sikh UK community,” said officials from Birmingham Airport in a statement to the press.

The video was posted on the Facebook page of Dhol Blasters, the talented musician behind the incredible performance. The video has already been watched over 16,000 times, and is fast approaching viral status.
