The a/c being towed the last tens of yards to the gate at JFK; "please remain seated and seat belts fastened until...., and now it is especially important, since we are at the mercy of someone, who has a NY driver's licence!"

A pilot giving the info during a flight said, "Well folks, we are now cruising at 35,000 feet, so we invite you to sit back and relax or sit up and be tense...either was it will take us about 40 more minutes to get into Reno."

2 classics I personally heard while non-revving on DL:
"Todays flight will take us up the Mississippi Valley from New Orleans to Chicago. During our flight. we will be privilaged to fly over "Alligator, Mississippi". Blank stares among the passengers. After a period of time, the DC 8-51 banks it's right wing and the Captain comes on the PA. "Ladies and Gentlemen, on the right side of the aircraft you can see a road and a railroad track crossing where there are about 20 or so small building. This is Alligator, Mississippi..." long pause, as several passenger take photos... "which is the birthplace of the First Officer." Applause from the passengers, humiliation from the second in command.
The second was like unto it... While on a CVG-LAX flight, the pilot announced we were flying over "4 corners" a spot on the map where the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado meet. There is a small marker (if memory serves, about 3 feet high) on the spot. The lady seated next to me took a picture of it. From 36,000 feet.

I once was on an AA flight from ORD to SLC. The approach into SLC involves a left turn over Ogden to start south, following the Salt Lake Valley. The captain announced, "Ladies and gentlemen, we'll be making a left-hand turn at the gas station with the clean restroom and starting our descent into Salt Lake City."

On a UA flight from SFO to BOS....

"Hello Ladies and Gentleman! This is your pilot speaking. On behalf of the crew we would like to welcome you on United. We appreciate your business and thank you for flying with us. Here at United, we have 3 of the best Flight Attendants in the industry. Unfortunately they could not be here today, but we do have these 3...."

Thai Airways captain, just before take-off: "Ladies and gentlemen, we have a slight problem with our nose wheel and as I don´t want to make a belly landing upon arrival I think we´re stuck here for a while."

EasyJet captain: "You´ll have a great view of another aircraft if you look to the right. If Spanish ATC do their job well, he should stay at that distance."

EasyJet cabin crew: "Please remain seated until we are at the gate, our pilots may be good fliers but are very bad drivers."
A bit later: "I hear seat belts clicking... if you want to get hurt that´s up to you, but I don´t want you to hurt someone else!"

LOL Danny!!! I spent some minutes looking at that picture wondering 'what is funny about this?'. The lower section (where the 'action' is happening) was outside of my view...  Smile  Smile

Good thread everyone! I remember a flight in AirEuropa (Spanish carrier) where the FA made fun during the safety presentation. Made a clown out of himself, things like when inflating the life jacket getting drowned, etc. All the airplane was up in laughs and the mood was very nice for the duration of the flight. The pilot did a comment to his joking on the PA later on, noticing that it was good the clown was in the cabin, not the cockpit!

Regards all, good thread.

On a Delta Connection flight last year, it was a late, late afternoon flight, and I imagine the crew had already been back and forth several times on their route.

Captain comes on, makes his hellos, and starts to welcome everyone onto "Flight number .... err ... err ... uhh ... err ... oh hell, we're going to Atlanta!".

So, Danny, where was the infamous picture taken?

Something I think sounds funny, but is typical is made possible due to UA channel 9 and differences between US and UK ATC. In the UK, the minimums where you can maintain high speed are much lower than in the US, and US pilots sometimes forget this. I heard an AA flight ask for a clearance into a lower flight level into heathrow and ask "what speed?" and ATC said "AAXXX clear to Fl110, speed as you wish" It just sounds so cool that they are telling a 777 to keep up at M.85 that close to landing.

Oh, and funny because it is so redundant, LH decent into PHX, the captain in his strong german accent "Weather in Phoenix is about 45 degrees Centigrade, so it is quite hot."

I was on a Southwest flight to Nashville in 2002 when the pilot comes on and says "Ladies and gentlemen, we are about to begin our final approach into Midway Airport in Chicago." A pause. "Ladies and gentlemen, my first officer says we are beginning our final approach into Nashville, and since he's bigger than I am, we're landing in Nashville."  Smile

cheers, Ralph

I was on a VolareWeb flight on approach to Venice Marco Polo Airport. About 20 seconds before landing, one of the pilots came on and said "For the people sitting on the right, you have a beautiful view of Venice, for the people on the left, you have a horrible view of Marghera" the whole cabin laughed. (Marghera is in Mestre where there is all factories with huge chimneys everywhere.)

On an Independence Air (best F/A's i've found, well the friendliest) flight from BDL-IAD which is like an hour and a half flight..
F/A: "This is flight #---- to Hawaii..." kinda lame humor, but the other PAX found it amusing at the time when it was chilly in hartford...

I have a couple too:

On an empty flight on a 767 from Sydney to Coolangata, pilot:" Ladies and Gent. as we don´t have that many people today I think we can do a game of hide and seek before we go, what do U say?"

On a flight from JFK to Cleveland Hopkins with AEagle, pilot: "Ladies and gent. welcome aboard frightXXX to cleveland on this new Embraer 145, this plane is so new that it comes with an oven and we´re making pankakes with maple syrupe for U, thank U, have a good day(and the plane had the smeel)"....some minutes later, "I´m sorry guys, it turns out that we don´t have pankakes with syrup, it´s just the de-icing liquid that smeels like this, but we could really use one right now, hã?!"

From a story I heard from some people flying Southwest, as they pulled into the gate next to an AA bird.

"Ladies and gentleman, if you'll all look out the windows on the left side of the aircraft, you'll give our competition a view of what a full flight looks like."
