When did Delta start using Fergie's Glamorous during boarding and deboarding? It was playing during my flight today from ATL to MIA (Delta 1067).

Delta has applied boarding music to most flights. The -88s may be an exception.

Nice, I know they were trying systemwide (mainline) but haven't been on an -88 in a while. My last flights 20 flights this year on DL have all been 757s and 738s.

I love it! I wish we played music like that at CO!! That would put many of my fellow coworkers in a good mood... as well as a few passengers.

I like it when airlines play real music. And not the tweedle dumb ping pong esque music (sorry, I can't think of a more intelligent way to describe it, its too early in the morning!) that most airlines play. For example, NeosAir - they have good music on board  Smile

Agree! I prefer to have something real playing. It makes it seem more relaxed and lulls the maddening passengers. I remember flying on a BY (TOM) B738 a couple of years back and they played music videos on boarding. It was 7.00am but we had J.Lo and her song "get right" blaring out. It really got me in holiday mood and everytime I hear it now it brings back that memory.

AIRLINES SHOULD PLAY MUSIC MORE, ESPECIALLY THE LOCO's. IT WILL SUBDUE THE PUNTERS.

I personally would love to hear Adiemus again! Now that was wonderful music by which to stow your overhead luggage.

Seriously, I thought that was one of the great moves by DL of that era (somewhere in the 90s I think it was) and I still love listening to that cd.

I asked the name of the performer and cd the first time I hear it while on hold to change a reservation. I remember the DL agent knew right away and said she couldn't believe the number of times she had been asked for the information. I also recall walking into Tower Records and asking for the "Delta Hold Music" cd and they knew exactly which one I meant!

(Time for my medication and bedtime now. Where did I put that cd...)

In the current rotation they have a dance remix of the Six Feet Under theme. I loved the show, but I find that choice pretty bizarre.

i know Rhapsody in Blue by heart for as long as I have held for United to pick up the phone recently.

Whats funny,is that my brother used to practice that piece relentlessly on the piano in high school and would always goof up at the same place and i still anticipate that "burp" to this day!

I worked for TWA and we played boarding music videos on the drop down flat screens on the 757. One day Madonna's "Rain" video was playing and a passenger came up to the first class galley and wanted to know who was in charge because he didnt want his family to watch the w%0(# that we were exposing them to. I almost started laughing because I thought he was joking. I think "Rain" is a beautiful song (and video.) Well by the time he was through with his red faced rant the video was over and "I believe I can fly" had come on...problem solved...LOL

I think it's better if an airline has a fairly wide range of music for boarding, phone holds, etc. "Rhapsody in Blue" is a beautiful piece, and I certainly think of United when I hear it...but if I have to hear it several times in succession it loses its allure. And when I was in Australia in 2003 I got to the point where I thought that if I had to hear "Spirit of Australia" over and over and OVER one more bloody time I was going to do something that'd put me on the evening news. (But at least you can get a good cup of tea on Qantas, so I forgive them.  silly  )

That's a very odd choice, I have to agree.

In the mid-80s, AA used an instrumental version of Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis Eyes" as the boarding music on their DC-10s. Whenever I hear the song now, I turn it up because it brings back so many happy memories  Smile

Indeed. Best boarding music ever, IMHO. I just loved that song. Sadly they don't use it anymore  Sad .

I think they should play the original version. Imagine customer's response when getting on a plane and hearing "If you ain't got no money, take your broke *ss home"!!!  Big grin  Big grin Might scare off some of the less desirable customers....just kidding of course.

I'll agree though that Adiemus still wins out as the best boarding music.

Just go onto iTunes, Musicmatch, or any similar service, and do a search for "Adiemus," or "Karl Jenkins."

As a side note, not only did Karl do the famous Adiemus, but he also made the famous Palladio used by the Debeers company.

I've been on Delta MD-88's with the boarding music, too. The weird thing is that the boarding music doesn't have the same annoying high-pitched hum that the MD-88 PA system has.

The jazz cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" last summer was kinda weird, too.
