Hi threre!

On a recent Air Sahara flight I heard some of the funniest announcements ever! This has to be my favourite though...

On approach to Mumbai airport "Cabin crew please be seated, please be seated, however expect a delayed approach, as there is a dog on the runway;actually, we're trying to work out if it's a dog or a b!tch"

the entire cabin cracked up at this annoucement! We got to meet the captain after the flight....very nice man who spent quite a while in the U.K racing cars...

So, what are some recent (or old) funny announcements from the pilots?

I heard this one from one of my instructors at school...apparently a passenger wound up filing a complaint to AA about it afterwards... Big grin

"Ladies and gentlemen, we're sorry about the delay in departure.......for those of you on the right side of the plane if you look out the window, you'll see a tornado on the southern end of the airport........once it leaves the airport area we'll be on our way"

Forget where i heard this

"We'd like to thank you for flying with us and the next time youget the insane erge to go blasting through the air in a pressurized aluminum tube think of us here at us airways."

on a wn flight i heard this after the plane waited 6 minutes for 3 late passengers. "eny meny meiney moe take your seats so we can go"

If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

On a CO flight from IAH - CMH:

"Attention K-Mart Shoppers...Oh wait...Sorry, that's my night job"

I was slightly amused, at least.

We are very tired and need to sit down. Pls come to the galley if you want a refreshment.

A easyjet pilot on a flight from LTN to BFS, said the exact phrase;

"Ladies & Gentlemen, We are now at our crusing alitude of 25,000 feet. We are now flying over the city of Liverpool, so please make sure that your bags and wallets are safely with you.

Couple of years ago after a hard landing in Phoenix the Southwest first officer came on and welcomed us to Phoenix and apologized for the landing. He said it wsn't his fault, it wasn't the captain's fault, it was the asphalt.

I was on a NW flight from IND to LAX and the captain came on and said "Please make sure that you have a piece of the airplane strap to you as we prepare for arrival"

I found it quite enjoyable

On the evening flight from Oslo to Stord on Golden Air last year:

"This is your captain speaking. We have now started our descent towards Stord - Sørstokken (goes on to tell the weather conditions). And I would like to thank you for flying with us here at Golden Air, the airline with the best looking and best trained flight attendants. (Short pause) Sadly none of them are with us on this flight. Thank you."

At which point the flight attendant in the aisle next to me looked up with a grin, and then walked towards the cockpit...  Smile

D@mn, you mean someone else has actually flown to Stord because they wanted to????  Big grin

Back in the late 80s I flew Coast Air from Stavanger to Stord, and thence Stord to Bergen, Dad was living and working there on the island. I even logged a couple hours in the Cessna 150 that was based there at the flying club.

A pilot, said that to the passengers on a Delta Song flight from JFK - Orlando Intl...

That flight was had the worst approach ive ever seen, his angle of approach was far to steep.

Had an AA 777 Captain tell the Pax that around 3am Santa will be passing us either 2,000ft below us or 2,000ft above us as he was told by ATC after finishing giving gifts to South America. Also on that flight he told how he loved flying the 777 and what a complicated machine it is.

Flight back home another AA 777 captain tried speaking in Spanish on EZE-MIA flight it was not very good.

Also on a 777 flight the Safety demo video was not working and the FA's had to do a manual safety demo. Man they where not ready for that. One line I remeber was never inflate the aircraft until outside.

I was on a Southwest flight from Cleveland to Baltimore, and the FA's were doing the safety demonstration. While instructing us how to use the drop down oxygen masks, the FA said, "Please afix yours before helping your friend. If you're travelling with two friends, now would be a good time to decide which one you like better."

I had never flown Southwest, so It was a great first time with me, they were really great.

Many years ago, while taxiing for a late evening Swissair BAe-146 take-off Copenhagen - Zurich the F/A announced the usual safety stuff on the microphone. First in German language: "Guten Abend, willkommen an Bord...", then in French language, and finally "Good evening, welcome...".

She was really good at various languages, except the fourth and most appropriate one, Danish.

There was a long pause, the captain announced one minute to prepare cabin for take-off. One F/A bitched louder and louder over the tape player. The other F/A came up to her for assistance and she shouted in German: " But it worked this morning!" Then suddenly one F/A shouted: "It works, it works, don't touch".

Then the PA system came on in Danish language: "Good morning, welcome...".

The whole cabin, except a few Swiss passengers and the F/As, burst into laughter.

On a SAS DC-9 many years ago on a domestic flight in Denmark, Karup - Copenhagen, on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning:

Good morning, this is your captain, we are now cruising at 20,000 feet and we will soon begin descending for Copenhagen where we will land in fifteen minutes. Hope that you enjoy the beautiful view as much as we do here up front. On the right hand side you will see the Great Belt ferries crossing at a fraction of our, aeh, 300 knots.... Enjoy this beautiful view of your beautiful little country. In ten minutes time, just before landing, we will make a small tour over also beautiful Sweden, and, aeh, aeh....... - our first officer insists that he can already see Sweden, one of the qualifications to become a first officer is that he must have good eyes.

I was on an SWA flight from LAS to SNA, a rather full flight. One of the male F/A's comes on the PA and asks that people start to fill in the middle seats.

"please start to fill in the middle seats. Its okay get to know the person next to you. Thats how I met my first ex-wife."

The aircraft erupted in laughter.

On the evening easyJet flight from CDG to NCE

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Nice please remain seated until the aircraft has come to a complete stop. Please remember your personal belongings as well as children or firends even if you would rather leave them behind.

Sitting facing the pax the FA did the following announcement as we were approaching the gate and everyone was holding the seatbuckle ready to flip it.

UN....DEUX.....TROIS.. (and when the sign was turned off) ALLEZ!!!!

Preben.. think my dad was responsible was responsible for that announcement

Enroute to Indonesia,

"Ladies and gentlemen, we will be arriving in Jakarta in about 10 minutes. I expect there to be no turbulence on the descent" a second after that, the whole plane drops down..Passengers asleep wake up with the buddys on top of them.."Sorry about that, downdraft.."
"Next time, if you want to fly on a rollercoaster, don't fly this route. On the return trip, sure got roller coaster ride, bumping up and down."
