A Southwest Airlines passenger has gone viral after sharing a video showing how members of their cabin crew were handling a "four-hour delay".

Boutique shop owner Summer Lowe (@shawty.got.lowe) recently went viral on TikTok after sharing a 26-second clip of how one Southwest Airlines flight attendant was keeping the passengers entertained amid a four-hour delay.

In overlay text on the video, Lowe wrote: "[I] can't make this up. this is our flight right now after being delayed for 4 hours". She added in the post's caption: "It’s a BOOKED flight too".

The video shows Lowe and her partner struggling to hold it together as one flight attendant can be heard channeling her inner Mariah Carey and belting out an OTT rendition of the popular children's song, 'If You're Happy And You Know It'.

As Lowe said - you can't make this stuff up.

You can check out the amusing clip in the post below:

I won't lie - this is my idea of an absolute nightmare and I certainly would not be clapping my hands.

The choice of song, the number of people actually clapping along, the unnecessarily long note held at the end - it's all a perfect recipe for me forcing that emergency exit open.

Lowe's video went on to amass a whopping 795,000 views and was even featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

However, the comments were divided between people who think the singing is very "wrong time, wrong place" and those who are genuinely impressed by the airline employee's vocal performance.

"That would of been my breaking point," commented one TikTok user.

"I would have been arrested and sitting in Club Fed awaiting my federal criminal charges because that would have sent me over the edge," wrote a third.

Then, in a more positive view of the story, one person commented: "Southwest Airlines flight attendants are BUILT DIFFERENT. I love that airline so much lmao."

"This is great customer service," added another TikToker.

"She just trying her best to make the situation a little better not just for you but for herself," commented another.

So, what are your thoughts on Lowe's experience? Would you have been clapping along? Or would you have been put on the no-fly list? Let us know in the comments.
