On a recent flight last week to SAN for business, I flew WN. Much like the general public, I often find humor in some of the Southwest Spirit. Our return flight to PHX from SAN was quite delayed, and our flight crew looked like they had gone through the ringer that day. Even though everyone was tired, there was still a bit of energy left for some humor. As we taxied into the new D gates in PHX, one FA sang to the airplane:

(Song: I've been working on the railroad)

FA:

I've been workin on this airplane, all the long hot day...
Can't you hear our engines roarin, we've come a long long way...

..........
.........
........
.........

I can't remember the rest....any WN crew or customer that can help me out?

See? See? They DO have alcohol on board!!! Either that or they were trying to think of everything to keep pax off of them. I've seen some flight crews who are just as crabby and brash as the delayed pax are. Rather funny to sit back and watch. Big grin

Didn't they learn anything from those two HP pilots? I guess you'll hear this on Southwest's commercials now:

*Ding* you are now free to move about the saloon.

probably what I like least about flying WN.

Hopefully this "folksy" trend will go out of fashion! I'll take a crabby , old, NWA flight attendant any day!

And maybe you'll get a drink if you are lucky...

I love it and it keeps me coming back.

Reminds me of an advert that I saw a few years ago with the original WN flight attendants whom still fly for WN:

"We've been telling corny jokes for the past 25 years and so far nobody has gotten up and left!"

People actually trying to have fun and enjoy their jobs when its a bad day, what a concept!

Checko - I definitely agree. Although I often favor UA heavily, I find my best experiences with UNITED are when the employee's treat you like a friend, not a problem child. This is one of the key reasons why WN ranks so high with customer service satisfaction...it is familiarity and comfort that makes you feel welcome aboard.

Last September, I had to fly home to ISP from MCO when my school closed due to hurricane Francis. Upon arriving in ISP, the crew sang

'We love you, you love us,
We got you away from "Francus",
We hope you enjoyed our hospitality,
Marry one of us and you'll fly free!'

Needless to say they got a few chuckles and applause from everyone.

here it is:

You’ve been sitting on an airplane
All the hot long day
I've been working on the airplane
We’ve come a long long way

Can't you hear the engines roaring
Rise up so early every morn
Can't you hear the captain shouting
Sorry we arrived so late.

Tell that to the WN flight attending who screamed at me to put my seat forward. You see, I was reclined and she was serving coffee behind be to someone. I accidentally sat up a little straighter and bumped her elbow and like a drop of the coffee spilled out.

I sure felt like a WN friend when she screamed, "you need to move your seat forward NOW" for everyone in the back of the cabin to hear!

I've heard this one:

To the tune of "I love you, you love me..."

We love you,
you love us,
we're much faster than the bus.

We hoped you enjoyed our hospitality,
If you marry one of us then you'll fly free.

I obviously love WN and travel exclusively on them for business.

My FAVORITE over the PA after touchdown was on a flight from BUR to LAS.

After a particulary "hard" landing, while on taxi to the gate, the flight attended said:

"That wasn't the flight attendants fault...

...and that wasn't the captain's fault...

..it was the as-phalt."

It still makes me laugh

I love SWA I fly them every summer and they always make me laugh. this summer I decided to go on NW to see what it was like to fly on another airline and I went first class. Lets say I am going to write SWA a letter saying I am sorry.

Kudos to Southwest crew for trying to cheer up the passengers. Southwest has a very good punctuality record and the delay on that day was probably due to circumstances out of their control. To all the Southwest team members we have say:

We love you,
You love us.
You doing alright without an Airbus.
Keep up the good work, brighten our days,
Hire more comedians as FAs.

I just returned to BNA on WN and on taxi to the gate I heard one that I have never heard before:

May other airlines be forgot, and never bear to mind
Because Southwest got you here, and we got you here just find.
So grab your luggage and your kids, and head to baggage claim
We had some fun and sang some songs, now we want you off our plane.

love it! WN is one of the only carriers that can tell their passengers to get off of their plane and get away with it. Too bad Song and TED (which cater to the leisure market (WN) don't laugh a little.

Inevitably though, corny jokes would start.... no bueno.

I never got a song but I got a lot of corny jokes.

Also on B6 delayed in FLL the pilot came out and was telling jokes and he was really funny, like while we wait on the taxiway, I'll come out with my hat and can and perform, and alot of other stuff. And when one of the male F/A's was introducing the FA's, he would say funny things:
Juanita, she was Ms South Africa (Actually true)and she was on The Bachelor and alot of other stuff (She was pretty good looking so stuff like that) and then the other good one was- Charlotte, who also happens to be my ex-wife and the whole time he would stay stuff along those lines. Very Funny!!!
