Video: Om Shanti Om – Finnair crew dances onboard flight celebrates India’s Republic Day

A group of Finnair cabin crew sent their greetings to India on the eve of the nation’s 63rd Republic Day with a “Take OFF to Bollywood” dance aboard the carrier’s flight AY021 from Helsinki to New Delhi.

Ms Helena Kaartinen a cabin crew of Finnair and a group of her colleagues came aboard the aircraft after the passengers were boarded, and performed a hip gyrating number set to Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om.

Ms. Kaartinen got the idea from a former Indian colleague based in Mumbai. She explains in depth how the idea developed.
