While I’m not a huge fan of April Fools’ Day, I loved some of the creative pranks airlines played today. The top three were definitely WestJet, Spirit, and Air New Zealand. Here’s a summary:
WestJet introduces child-free cabins
WestJet created a video and webpage for their new “Kargo Kids” program, whereby cabins are child-free. Check out the website and video:
Spirit introduces $9 galactic flights to the moon
Spirit announced $9 one-way fares to the moon, and created a website dedicated to it. Of course you’ve gotta love Spirit because they’re not afraid to poke fun at their fee structure, including with this April Fools’ sale:
Air New Zealand introduces StraightUp fares
Air New Zealand offered StraightUp fares, whereby you could purchase tickets for standing room only. If you’re in a wheelchair they’re even nice enough to include wheel clamps with the price of your ticket.
Kudos to all three airlines for their creativity. Which April Fools’ prank was your favorite?
