We have have reached a time of the year when just about every airline schedules special flights to an unusual place -- the North Pole.
The flights give sick and underprivileged children a chance to ride on an airplane and visit Santa. Often, the flights actually take off. Sometimes, however, like on the Delta trip I took last year, the airplane only does a "fast taxi" around the airfield. Either way, the kids are enthralled. And airline employees enjoy the flights, too.
CNN did a feature this week on United's program, which could bring a smile to your face.
And here's a cute video produced recently after a Delta Air Lines flight from Detroit.
