This Virgin America Employee Writes The Most Hilarious Signs

This is why people love this airline so much.

If you've ever taken a Virgin America flight out of San Francisco, you might have seen Steve Freitag.

For years, Steve and his gate crew have been having a bit of fun with the messages on gate signs.

The result is a seriously hilarious collection of signs.

Sometimes, Steve will even get in costume to add to the joke.

For example, his "Hipster Santa" outfit around Christmas.

According to Steve, Virgin encourages employees to make the air-travel experience fun.

Basically, as long as the sign isn't being used for any important announcements, it's fair game for the employees to mess with.

Sometimes the signs are more emotional, as in the case of this touching tribute to Leonard Nimoy.

But for the most part, they're just meant to put a smile on customers' faces.

Virgin America was recently bought by Alaska Airlines, worrying customers that this sort of experience might disappear with the merger.

You can check out even more of Steve's amazing signs in his Imgur gallery. Or maybe if you're lucky, in person at SFO airport!
