Announcements

All too rarely, airline attendants make an effort to make the in flight 'safety lecture' a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples of funny airline cabin crew announcements:

1. On a Southwest flight 245 (SW has no assigned seating, you just sit where you want) passengers were apparently having a hard time choosing, when a flight attendant announced, 'People, people we're not picking out furniture here, find a seat and get in it!'

2. On a Continental Flight with a very 'senior' flight attendant crew, the pilot said, 'Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants.'

3. On landing, the stewardess said, 'Please be sure to take all of your belongings. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have.'

4. 'There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane.'

5. 'Thank you for flying Delta Business Express. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.'

  2. I've heard a lot of funny announcements over the years... I'm paraphrasing but one went something like "Please remain seated with your seat belts on while the Captain barrels down the runway and comes to a screaming halt in front of our gate."

    big hugs x0x0

  3. These are good. I'm thinking #2 would require some retaliation from the senior crew. That pilot should consider keeping the cockpit door locked :P

  4. LOL at Number 3 and 4 :) I like entertaining in flight lectures, I think they need to do that because you know..few passengers listen to them right?

  11. All the airlines are being petty right now. I've been trying to get my tickets to Miami but the the airlines are keeping their prices up so high. It seems that they are all gauging now. Sorry, I went over bound this morning.
    Have a gorgeous Tuesday Sandee. Sorry for my comment but as soon as read " flight", it got to me. I'll be OK tomorrow. See ya.

    1. Flying used to be a lot nicer than it is now. Less space and now you pay for everything. A meal used to be part of the flight, now you have to buy something to eat. :)

  13. I remember when Southwest used to have that sort of comedy, it make gong into the flight easier. Hope you have a great week!

  17. Those are cute! Reminds me of the time I rode a Mexican bus from the Border to Mexico City. Unlike buses here in the states---the seats were assigned-----of course pigs and chickens were in the back! One hasn't experienced life until they ride a Mexican bus through the mountains! Seems to be no speed limit and I suspect most drivers have soaked up a lot of tequila before getting in the driver's seat.

    1. I rode a bus from Guadalajara to the border. It was first class though. They had two drivers and two stewardesses that took turns working then sleeping. It was traveling in style. :)
