WestJet Prank

WestJet Prank, WestJet announced a lighting plan to save on fuel costs Friday – pumping of helium in the ventilation systems to help lighten the weight of their aircraft.

“As a low-cost airline, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to keep our costs low,” said shrill voice of WestJet spokesman Richard Bartrem the plan.

Helium is 85 percent less dense than nitrogen, the element that makes up 80 percent of the air we breathe. As such, the Calgary-based company says the “state of the art, money-saving” idea could reduce the cost of airline fuel by up to three or four percent per year so their Boeing 737 fleet naturally more buoyant.
