Some fun, strange and surprising things can happen during flights.

Last year I wrote a post about the FAA Investigating Harlem Shakes On A Plane and earlier this year the cast of the The Lion King sang during a flight in Australia.

How about being surprised by a special show during a flight!

Earlier in the week, a Southwest flight flying from New York to Chicago “turned a Boeing 737 into a Runway in the Sky”.

It didn’t turn the 737 into an airplane runway, it turned into a fashion runway!

Southwest is “The Official Airline of the Magnificent Mile” and wanted to celebrate the renewed partnership. “To kickoff the Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival” they turned a Boeing 737 into a Runway in the Sky.

Six models (randomly seated around the plane) took part in the special inflight event, showing off the latest fashions from Macy’s at Water Tower Place.

Now I can’t say that I am into fashion but I think to see a unique event like this would’ve been pretty cool! The best part was that everyone received a $100 gift card to spend at a store at the Magnificent Mile.
