Yeah, it wouldn't fit in the subject... This morning at CLE I was waiting to board my flight to PHL as part of my spur-of-the-moment trip, I noticed two PA announcements that sounded rather odd.

The one that I wanted to ask about though was before boarding the gate agent at my gate announced it as "On Behalf of your SkyTeam and Star Alliance ground crew, I'd like to welcome passengers for all seats all rows for flight xxxx to ..."

Is that CO's new announcement? It just seemed really odd that Continental wasn't mentioned anywhere in the announcement (not even Continental flight xxxx to...) and doubly odd that both alliances would be mentioned in the same sentance [I'd actually expect that we were getting very close to the point at which the mention of any alliance would be nonexistant [don't market SkyTeam and not yet a part of Star] -- it also, like this post, seemed unnecessarially wordy.

(The other announcement was [this may not be verbatim, but it's pretty close] "Will the woooman who, uh, left her stuff at gate D-X, uh, return to collect your bags immediately. If they're not gone in 5 minutes, I'm calling the cops" -- which had a certain, um, unprofessional texture to it)
