Cringeworthy Mis-announcements By Crew

Suppose this has come up before, but my recent flight on a Canadair RJ700 reminded me of a time when a pre-flight shpiel from cabin crew informed us that this was "a Canadian Air [sic] regional jet" - and I think there might even have been one time when crew said it was an "Air Canada" RJ (the Canadair RJ's I've been on were Delta (ComAir, ASA), and United.

But far, far, far, far worse then that was an America West flight I was on that had just touched down at no less an airport than O'Hare, and the F/A announced "Welcome to Chicago International."

Frankly, I don't think it's a horrible thing when a wrong announcement is made (or something similarly harmless) by an FA. It adds a little character to the person and lightens the mood a bit.

Southwest Airlines' F.A.s have been known to ad-lib and crack jokes a lot while doing the welcome announcements during interaction with customers and thank you announcements after the flight.

They are generally pretty serious when it comes to the mandated Federal Safety announcements, but I remember this one from a Southwest flight from HOU-SJC a couple of years ago:

"Welcome, Ladies and Gentlemen, to Southwest Flight #nnnn, [etc.] - the following are the mandatory Federal Fight Safety Instructions - please listen to them carefully, although we know that most of you won't - well it doesn't matter, we're just making it up as we go along anyway...".

The F/A did then point out that she was KIDDING and to please pay attention to the instructions.

Check out the Podcast entitled "Betty in the Sky with a Suitcase!" for some interesting real-life stories from a seasoned F/A's point of view.

On many flights, I've had the captain or first officer give that long pause when giving the post-10,000 feet welcome message when he apparently has to look up the flight number because he's forgotten it. As in "ladies and gentlemen, we welcome you aboard flight... uh..." (long pause) "we welcome you aboard flight 350 to Portland today..."

I realize pilots might be flying more than one leg per day and can get confused, but all I can think in these cases is "didn't they have to contact ATC at least a couple of times before this?"

It's even usually the pilot manning the radios who makes that cabin announcement, not the pilot flying, from what I understand.

I have to defend (some of) the pilots on this one. In many cases the flight number the pilots are using with ATC is not the same as the flight number on your ticket. There was a topic in the Tech/Ops forum about this recently.

Before re-branding as Virgin Australia, the scripted announcement for Virgin Blue read "On behalf of the entire crew I would like to thank you for choosing to fly with Virgin Blue, and welcome home to [Sydney], or enjoy your stay here in the [Sydney] area".

I always liked that, and occasionally you do still hear it although it is no longer in the scripted remarks.

For the most part I have no problem with FAs stumbling their lines or getting destinations mixed up, but I can't stand "Mel-born" and "Bris-bane". No. Just no.

At least in my case, it wasn't done as a joke. After the plane returned to JFK, it did indeed go down to PBI and terminate. And, in her apology, she said that she was a few hours ahead of herself.

I've never heard it done by mistake; every time I've heard an annoucement like that, it's clearly been a joke by the crew.

The aircraft in question was in fact not a combi configuration, and Sriwijaya does not operate any B737 combi. So I was not really sure how she got that combi on the announcement.

Indeed. And can you imagine the attitude you'd get from people if you told them anything but "sit down, we're about to land"? You wouldn't have them in their seats before the threshold.
