This was nice and uplifting. Travelling during the holidays can be frustrating with the weather and delays, this was certainly a nice gesture.

Pretty cool. A marketing stunt, but still pretty cool.

 

There just isn't enough time to buy and wrap presents for a flight between Pearson and Munro! It is an hour drive on a fast day.

I wonder if they had to leave out any, like if someone asked for a Ferrari or a billion dollars.

So...when you go through airport security, they ask you whether you have any luggage (carry-on or otherwise) you haven't packed yourself.  So you're just gonna trust you can go through security with these boxes you can't vouch for?

 

Might give some people some ideas for next year.

 

(yeah, I'm cynical in that way)

You have security going through your things leaving the airport after picking up the baggage? I have never heard of that before.

 

Wonderful gesture, regardless if it is a marketing gimmick or not. That someone came up with this idea and saw it through, even though it must have cost a lot, just wonderful!! (Y)
