All these hosties want for Christmas is you

Flight attendants for low cost Phillipine carrier Cebu Pacific are bringing the Christmas to cheer to their passengers by turning their pre-flight safety instructions into a festive-themed swing.

Swaying to Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas is You', the staff members of the Manila-based airline went to the trouble of creating a choreographed dance which apparently helps passengers pay more attention to the demonstration of how to use their seat belts and life jackets.

Candice Iyog, an airline spokesman, told Associated Press: "Now that it's Christmas, we wanted to bring a little more fun into the flight."

She added that the reaction from the passenger's on the select flights had been good.

It's not the first time Cebu Pacific's orange and khaki-clad hosties have swayed through the aisles – the airline made headlines in September last year when videos of them dancing safety instructions to Lady Gaga's 'Just Dance' and Katy Perry's 'California Gurls' went viral.

Cebu Pacific Airlines is currently the Philippines' leading domestic carrier and is renowned for its low fares and gimmicks, including in-flight games and giveaways.
