Looks more like clapping to celebrate arriving on holiday or something.

The must be common on the IL-96.  Smile
When I flew to Moscow last year on an Aeroflot IL-96, the passengers clapped and cheered very loud like on this plane. It was a long 10.5 hour turbulent flight with people drunk on vodka.

Try Cubana.
I've flown them but on an IL-62.
The flight was too short to get drunk on rum. However if I get a long flight on Cubana IL-96 to Havana, I am sure I'll be one of the drunk clappers in a festive mood.

Quoting RussianJet (Reply 6):
ever been to Cuba?

I have. I sounded a lot like those on the plane landing just about every night.

The IL-96 is about the same loudness of a 777.

Man, that sounded like a live studio audience... I wonder where the plane was landing? They sounded all gitty before touchdown, so I agree with LH526; they probably were filled with rum!  Wink I remember when an El Al plane almost got hit with a missile over South Africa landed safely at Ben Gurion they were all clapping and singing the Israeli national anthem. However that was more of a sobering moment than this video.

I dont see what is so funny or what the big deal is. There clapping, end of story. Maybe they are on vacation, maybe they had a rough flight due to weather and there happy to be on the ground. Point is, who gives a sh*t. Let them clap all they want.

Hey guys.....When I flew LOT Polish Airlines over to Warsaw in 2003.... and back to/from Chicgao, on both landings the passenegrs clapped... I asked my Polish friend why they did this and it is to pay respect and appreciaiton for the flight crew for getting them safely to their destination.....So for those of you that think its funny or dorky or even obnoxious, think again..its just a show of appreciation and respect... And now you know!!!!!!!!

I was flying into ACV during a hellacious storm one time on a EMB-120, winds about turned the plane over, and it looked like we were going to go in the ocean. We didn't, and at the end of the flight, everyone stood up and clapped. It was one time I didn't mind it.

I love it when people clap after I land the aircraft. Just feels good plain and simple. Better then having nagging people all day complaining that the coffee is too hot in the back.

That's a 'tradition' in Venezuela. I get ashamed every time I fly in a plane full of Venezuelan people, as when the plane lands, they begin clapping like if they had previously trained!

Funny though, they were either drunk or probably was a gropu of people who like to bust some a$$

cheers

That cheering reminded me of Nov.2003,when I came home on 15 day R&R while serving a yearlong tour in Iraq. The ATA
L-10-11 landed at BWI,and seconds after touchdown,the pilot announced,"Welcome back to the United States"! It sounded as if all of us 200 troops on the flight cheered,what an exciting moment!

I've definitely found that there is less clapping on American flights than on European flights. I don't think clapping is annoying, but for me as an American it's a very rare thing.

I only clap and cheer if we bounce a couple times while landing, hit a downburst, or have to do a go-around. Unfortunately, it's often drowned out by the shrieks and gasps of idiots who think we're crashing.  Sad

I hear very little clapping in Europe, i recall hearing some on flights to portugal from time to time, or maybe more on eastern europe flights.

Then again, I just came back from Russia, and on a SU flight between LED and SVO, people did not clap upon landing, and on the LX flight from DME to GVA (packed with mostly russian pax), people clapped... But it was a very shaky flight and I guess that's what happens most of the time with bad weather flights. Turbulence = anxious people = happy to get to the airport  Wink

I have found that people tend to clap more on a long haul flight, although I think there was alot of clapping at KIX when I went in April because you could feel a strong crosswind when we landed. And they always clap when landing at FNC, it is quite a tricky approach as those who have been there willl know.

Thats it?

You should have seen what went on in the 1980's when Avianca would operate "Lechero" (Milk-Run) flights with 707's on routings like JFK-BAQ-BOG-MDE......By the time you got to the last stop, people were shouting, yes SHOUTING, and singing and whistling and clapping with uncontrolled joy (or was it relief?)

Those were the days......
