United Express flight 3705 from Newark to Kansas City arrived 32 minutes early on Christmas Day. But that wasn’t the most remarkable thing about the flight. Republic Airways captain Joseph Tar Schmidt serenaded passengers on the flight prior to departure.
It was truly an honor to play for our lovely customers this Christmas. Bringing holiday cheer one carol at a time! 🎄🎁😃 pic.twitter.com/LzQTLGSpjl

Violinist and freelance musician Captain Schmidt is clearly living his best life,
I am an extremely passionate individual and consider myself very lucky to be able to do what I love for a living. Aviation and Music have been in my life since before I could remember. Since I was a kid, I’ve looked skyward and through the help of many people, I made flying my career. I started playing the violin at the age of 10 and can truly say that it has been a pleasure.
His Embraer ERJ-175 passengers on Christmas Day were living theirs, too! And is it just me, or does the passenger in 1A bear a striking resemblance to Holly Hegeman?
