Unless you have deep pockets and the ability to travel first-class, flying anywhere can be something of a nightmare. For at least one brief shining moment earlier this week, however, flying coach came with a spectacular bonus: the cast of "The Lion King" Australia performing "The Circle of Life." 

Even if there were a few people who despise musicals on this flight from Brisbane to Sydney, I guarantee they enjoyed this performance. I mean, seriously, what else is there to look forward to during pre-flight boarding except the nail-biting tension of wondering who will be sharing the seat next to you? This is awesome. This should be standard on all flights. I want the cast of "ONCE," instruments and all, on my next trip

Check out the awesomeness below:
