Thu Dec 22, 2011 10:25 pm

Guests who traveled on Virgin America 837 12/16 ORD-SFO got something extra as they waited for their checked luggage in baggage claim. VX teamed up with Banana Republic for a little gift giving, first time iv'e seen a stunt like this pulled at the airport.

Video Description - Holiday travel can be full of baggage, so Banana Republic teamed up with Virgin America to help passengers claim a little joy! Inspired by the video "Unexpected Luggage", they wrapped up the coziest of surprises to make holidays bright.
Best phrase to hear at the airport - "All standbys have been cleared and may board at this time"

That's clever marketing.   

Seems to have been well received by the surprised passengers.
