    Passengers on Southwest Airlines Flight 2246 from Dallas to San Diego were given a new Nintendo Switch system as part of a promotion.

    Passengers on a Southwest Airlines flight got more than a small bottle of water when they boarded their plane.

    They received a Nintendo Switch system and a download code for the digital version of the "Super Mario Maker 2" game to enjoy as Flight 2246 traveled from Dallas to San Diego on Wednesday.

    Many of the passengers were headed to Comic Con in the California city.

    Mario was on hand to greet the passengers when the flight arrived.
