Finnair cabin crew danceWe've all seen those iconic dances from famous Bollywood films, but not many of us will have been treated to a live performance on board a flight.

But that's exactly what the cabin crew did on a Finnair flight from Helsinki to New Delhi, to celebrate India's 63rd Republic Day.

A video, showing the smiling staff treating passengers to the choreographed routine, has become a hit on YouTube, receiving more than half-a-million clicks in just one day.

Bollywood on board: The Finnair cabin crew performed the routine on a flight to Delhi

Helena Kaartinen, the flight attendant who came up with the idea, coordinated rehearsals and even enlisted the help of a former flight attendant friend in Mumbai, who is now a Bollywood teacher.

She uploaded videos of the team practising and expert Manish Gawde corrected the choreography ahead of the performance.

Ms Kaartinen told the New York Times: 'It was a good way to show respect.'

She said she was keen to show Indian passengers that the airline did know something about their culture.

The performance took place on a flight on January 17 and was uploaded to Finnair's YouTube channel on January 26 to mark Republic Day.
