Occasionally, flight attendants make an effort to make
the in-flight safety lecture and their other announcements
a bit more entertaining. Here are some examples that
have been reported:
Your seat cushions can be used for flotation. In the
event of an emergency water landing, please take them
with our compliments.
The weather at our destinations is 50 degrees with some
broken clouds, but we'll try to have them fixed before we
As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your
belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed
evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave
children or spouses.
After a very hard landing in Salt Lake City the flight
attendant came on the
intercom and said, "That was quite a bump and I know what ya'll
are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's
fault and it wasn't the pilot's fault and it wasn't the flight
attendant's fault. It was the asphalt!"
One flight attendants comment on a less than perfect
landing, "We ask you to please remain seated as Captain
Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."
Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement, "We'd
like to thank you for flying with us today. And,
the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting
through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll
think of us."
And from the pilot during his welcome message, "We are
pleased to have some of the best flight attendants in the
industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight."
