WestJet FlightLight

WestJet today announced a cute new connected nightlight. Dubbed the ‘Flight Light,’ the device pulls WestJet flight data to provide children with a visual representation of when their parents are coming home from a trip. The Flight Light does this with the help of a specially designed mobile app that allows parents to input and sync their flights to the device.

Can you program in a 30-45 minute wait for luggage and an hour plus for the drive home from the airport?

I'm almost halfway between YHZ and YQM, smack dab in the middle of nowhere. If one of my kids had one of those lights they would have a long wait between plane landing and me coming through the door.

Ha, I was thinking the same actually until I started reading more of the email. Not something I would ever purchase, but it's a unique and "cute" idea.
