KLM creates the highest dance party in the world, on first flight to Miami #fly2miami

When was the last time you did something for the first time? That’s a question I often ask my friends when I meet them. I bring it up now, because I’m doing something for the first time today – being part of the highest dance party in the world, on-board KLM’s first flight from Amsterdam to Miami.

Yes, imagine dance beats pumping through the aircraft PA system, mojitos being served to all passengers, as flight attendants dance down the aisle. It might sound like I’m joking, but it’s really a flight that I’m on! And it’s the result of a bet between a Dutch DJ and KLM, that the airline would fly a party plane down to Miami if the DJ could fill up up! You can read the whole back-story here (super cool!)

Not only are the 150 people selected by the DJs on-board this flight, KLM also held an online competition, where anyone could submit a photo of their summer party, and they’d stand a chance to go to Miami on this flight too! And I’m going to be rubbing shoulders with these folks on the flight too!

I’m sure the next few days are going to be lots of fun, and I’m excited to be part of this first flight! Great to see KLM bring the fun back to flying!

You can follow all the tweets, photos and videos from the trip right here.

    Hmmm.. to dance or not to dance? That is the question.

    What airlines won't do for some publicity, eh?
