I just wanted to share with some of you some funny cabin announcements. Please feel free to add to the list. Lets see how many we can get!
"Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Denver...please use caution when opening the overhead compartments as you may be KILLED by falling luggage items, and that would create a lot more paperwork for us!"
On a lightly booked flight, with about 15 people or so on it, the captain would make this announcement a few minutes before pushback.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, if you could help us out by moving to the window, we would greatly appreciate your help...(pause) so we can give our compeditors the impression that we have a full flight today. Thanks for your cooperation."
Here is an announcment that was made after a real hard landing.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain seated as our pilots are much better flyers than they are drivers!
Here is one of my favorites. This was made on a through flight to Orlando.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, here at United the flight attendants are required to clean the plane on through flights and we could certainly use some extra help today, so if you would like to help, please indicate yourself by standing up before the seatbelt sign is turned off. Thank you."
There are more...and i'll post them later. Also, I've actually never heard these made on a flight, but some f/a's have told me about them being made.

On my flight from JFK to SJC last Summer, the AA f/a said: "Ladies and Gentlemen, good afternoon, and welcome aboard AA flight ### with nonstop service to San Juan, Puerto Rico (long pause, whispering among passengers) Oh, excuse me, I mean, San Jose, California."
Some guy yelled out "Yeah! Puerto Rico! I could use a vacation! Let's go!"

I don't remember any of it, but on a Mesaba Airlines flight from Wichita to Memphis a few years ago, the FA's sung a rap song about the safety features of the RJ85. It was really catchy and every line rhymed. Has anyone heard this on their flight?

On a flight from Moscow with multiple stops, every time they'd use a different crew. And every time, the crew would say - Welcome to our plane. Then after 3rd or fourth stop, someone gets up and yells - NO - That's our plane, we've been her longer than you!
Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

My favorites are also on Southwest, withthe all-time classic being (in the pre-flight announcements):
"There is no smoking anywhere on this aircraft, including the restrooms. Anyone caught smoking will be re-seated out on the wing, where they will be free to enjoy our double-feature movie: "Bye-Bye Birdie", and "Gone With the Wind".

On a Delta 727 in SLC, we had been delayed for about 40 minutes due to bad weather in the area and bad weather along the route. We finally begin to taxi out and the pilot came on and said...
"Ladies and gentlemen...Due to less than favorable weather along the flight path we will be taxiing out towards our runway, but will have to sit around out there for a little while until we are able to take off."
15 minutes later...
"Ladies and gentlemen, due to a change in the winds, we must now taxi to the other end of the runway where we will continue our sitting around and waiting to take off..."

On a recent Aeromexico 757 flight MEX-MTY, after landing and waiting on the ramp for almost 30 minutes, pilot says: "Ladies and Gentlemen, due to the severe stupidity of the airlines's staff at MTY, and even though we have available gates, we will have to wait another 5 minutes to arrive at our gate"

Just yesterday on a Delta 767 going to Boston from Atlanta this happened:
There was a cold front causing rain and wind in both Atlanta and Boston. I figured there would be delays, but to my surprise we left the gate on time. The plane was pushed back and just as the movement stopped the captain came on the PA to say, "Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Captain (name). It looked like we were ready to go, but now there's a ground hold in Boston. We're going to be towed back to the gate. We'll have to wait there about an hour. We'll keep you updated as info is passed on to us." The plane moved forward to the gate. But just as we got there the captain came on the PA to say, "Well, we've got an update. The hold is off. We can go now." The plane hadn't even stopped moving forward! Now they were backing us out again. After being backed out the second time, we taxied to the runway. As we got to the runway the co-pilot said, "This is First Officer (name). We're number three for take-off. It should be only a few minutes. Captain (name) and I will continue with our pre-flight checklist. Now that we've practiced our ramp procedures we'll prepare for take-off... which we figure we'll only do once." All on board laughed.

There is a pilot that works for Olympic who's surname is Makaritis. Makaritis in Greek is called someone who has died. My best friend though it was a joke during a fligh but he then found out that it was his real name. Many passengers were afraid...

A number of years ago on a flight to IND, we arrived late one night due to weather and a very tired F/A came on the PA to announce "welcome to....." and she went blank, however she had the mic open as she asked anther F/A, where in the hell are we? Every one heard it, however she went on to announce that indeed we had arrived at Indianapolis.
I remember this was on a 72S, but it was either AA or DL.

Once, we flew on American Airlines from Miami to the Dominican Republic on vacation. We had a really bad landing, and I mean really bad. We hit the ground and heard a loud BOOM where it sounded like a tire had burst. Anyways, the Captain came on the PA and said "There you have it"
