Hi there,
I need an original announcement text for the time between boarding and take off - for a roleplay.
Can anybody help?

Here's what I could come up with after all of my flights on CO:

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome aboard Continental Airlines Flight XXXX to YYYY. We would like to have an ontime departure today, so we would greatly appreciate it if everyone could please take their seats and stow their personal belongings so we can be off the ground as quickly as possible. Your peronal belongings can be stored in the overhead compartments above you as well as underneath the seat in front of you. Thank you very much and we will be pushing back momentarily."

Sometimes, when seat assignments have been screwed up, they say this after talking about where to stow your luggage:

"We understand that there are a few parties whose seats have been separated to various areas of the aircraft, so we would once again apreciate it if you could seat yourselves as quickly as possible so the flight attendants are able to reseat those parties."

"And what about the cabin doors and cross check? What does that mean and how is announcement exactly?"

NumberTwelve:

I believe what you're looking for is the following:
"Flight Attendants, prepare for departure and cross check"

This is the indication to the cabin crew to "arm" the doors, which engages the evacuation slides. The term "cross check" usually refers to a second cabin crew member, who is double checking that the crew member with the responsibility to "arm" the doors, has indeed done so. You might hear something over the PA system like "4L and R cross checked" meaning the task has been accomplished.

Regards,

AA777223ER

On board a WN flight, the Captain came on and announced that it was the co pilots first flight. Then announced that it was his also. Said he had flown before but had never landed so we will see what happens when we get to Phoenix. Once everybody realized he was kidding it was hilarious.


Yellow?

Here's a typical one at Alaska.

"Good Morning Ladies and Gentleman and welcome aboard Alaska Airlines flight XXX with service into Ketchikan. As you are making your way to your seat today, we ask that you step into your row and enable those behind you to pass by. This will help expedite the boarding process and help us ensure an on-time departure. Please keep in mind that Federal Regulations require that all passenger carry-ons be properly stowed completely underneath the seat in front of you or in one of the shared overhead bins. However, if you are seated at a bulkhead row, all bags must be put in the overhead for takeoff and landing as the area at your feet, on the seat next to you, and on your lap is not FAA approved stowage. This includes ladies handbags, purses, briefcases, diaper bags, etc.

If you are seated in an emergency exit row today, please take a moment to review the safety information card found in your seat back pocket. If you have any questions or concerns about the added responsibilities of sitting in an exit row, please let a flight attendant know.

All portable electronic devices must be turned off and probably stowed for take off. This includes laptop computers, hand-held games, cd players, gameboys and PDA's. Cellphones must be turned off for departure. At no time do we allow the use of wireless internet devices, AM/FM radios, GPS or television sets.

Flight attendants, secure aft galley and cabin for departure.

Okay CO's definitely sounds a lot more like AS - I forgot a lot of the extra stuff.

Well, the HP anouncement is really long. It is more like a prayer.

Now the 1st Flight Attendant says this immediately after closing the cabin door.

"Flight Attendants, arm doors and cross check"

The 3rd Flight Attendant replies.

"2L, 2R armed and crossed checked"

Alaska is different from most carriers as far as arming doors go. Once the boarding door is closed, the First Officier announces "Flight attendants prepare for departure and crosscheck." The C FA arms R2 and the B FA arms L2. Either flight attendant will announce "Aft crosscheck complete, cabin secure for movement."

Upon arrival at the gate, the A FA will announce "Flight attendants, prepare for arrival and crosscheck." Once aft doors are disarmed, the B or C announces "Aft crosscheck complete."

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome aboard ShoddyAir flight 257 to Paris (Bratislava) - in the absence of pre-assigned seating, we invite you to sit in blocks according to which menial chore you would like to help us with today. If you'd like to help your cabin attendant sell sandwiches and drinks - on special offer today at only £11.99 - please sit towards the rear galley. Those who have logged over 6 hours on Microsoft Flight Simulator, please sit towards the front of the aircraft in order to assist your captain.

A safety card is located in the seat pocket in front of you. Passengers seated in window seats will, in addition, find a 1:2000000 map of Europe. Please note any visible landmarks you may see and sing out it looks like we're going the wrong way!! Passengers seated in emergency exit rows are advised that all hand luggage must be jettisoned immediately - I would also ask you to keep your seatbelt FIRMLY fastened throughout the flight.

We are completing our pre-departure checks - all portable electronic devices should now be switched off. For your entertainment, I'm sure someone left an old copy of AutoTrader somewhere in here on the 22nd flight sector this morning. Flight time today should be about 2 hours and we hope to be well on schedule, allowing you all to reach the city centre by lunchtime next Wednesday. We hope you enjoy your internment with us today. I mean flight.

"Sit down, shut up and listen to the safety announcement. We are going to Glasgow. Do not panic."

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking.
Well, you all think you paid your ticket for us to get you safely to your destination, but in fact you´re just paying my nice salary so that I can get this metal tube to my home base and enjoy a splendid week off afterwards in my huge villa and have some barbecues beside my pool."

Just kidding  Smile

Hmm I can see you guys are a little young.....surprised no one recognised it!

This is the opening from a song by Typically Tropical called We're Going to Barbados, which was plagiarised by the Venga Boys as We're Going to Ibiza.

Ladies and gentlemen, a very warm welcome on this Jungle Air flight to Mombasa. You´ll be able to switch on the fans once the pilots start the engines, but first we´ll have to find a monkey to run the electricity generating belt to spool these up, so in the meantime if you want to take off your clothes it´s ok but remember, no fuzzing around with anyone else than your partner and no sex with any of the animals that are flying with us today.
So, what makes our airline special is that we are quite different to the others, just so you don´t forget us and will hopefully choose us the next time too. As for safety, just remember a few basic rules: 1) if the plane doesn´t get airborne, open the windows and throw some chicken out to make the plane lighter 2) keep the windows open for a while, because if it still doesn´t get airborne and we crash, just jump out and run! We have no seatbelts, just hold on to each other. We are known to heal marriages and start new affaires through this hugging policy. And now, just sit back and relax. Once in flight the entertainment will be music played by the Monkey Trio, followed by a delicious meal of freshly cooked Monkey Trio steak. Go Jungle!
