Flying out of SNA today, we had some hilarious flight attendants. For those of you who have never departed out of SNA, every aircraft performs a noise-abatement take off, basically a few seconds after you lift off, the pilot cuts the engines back to produce less sound around the houses...
Anyways, after we took off and about a couple seconds after the Captain cut the power back she said, "Sshhhhh...everybody be quiet as we pass over the houses.."
During the flight, they said, after announcing the bev. service, "If there is anything our crew can do to make your flight more enjoyable...keep it to yourself."

I find their humour to be funny and it makes the journey cool. But, I've also found it to be very hit and miss. I fly SWA 4X a year and the last time I had any fun like that was 3 years ago. It is my opinion only that the reason for this is they have grown so much since then that it is tough to keep staffing so many so called comedians.

I've heard lots of funny stuff from WN flight attendants as I've been flying the airline since 1974. One of the best was the annoucement on pushback "...in the event of a sudden cabin depressurization, an oxygen mask will drop down from the overhead; now, after y'all stop screaming, place the mask..."
Another came from the flight deck when passengers were slow to find seats, "Everybody just sit down and shut up and we'll get this puppy to Dallas."

I heard some good ones...like...
"In case of a sudden cabin depressurization, first get your husband to stop wailing like a little baby, and then help him get his oxygen mask on."
"This is a non-smoking flight just like all of Southwest Airlines. Now if you really want to smoke, you can always sit on the wings outside, but I wouldn't suggest it."
((good looking flight attendant speaking to thirteen year old kid in emergency aisle)) "I'm sorry, you can't sit in that aisle. I'm not saying that you're not a studly, good looking man, and I'm sure your plenty strong to handle it, but wait till you're older" ((kid slowly turning a dark shade of red))
((after departing from LAX)) "And on your left is the beautiful Pacific Ocean. If you strain your eyes just hard enough to your right, you just might be able to see downtown L.A. through all that smog folks"

On WN 203 a week ago today, an F/A got on the PA after we landed in BDL and sang happy birthday, Monroe style, to one of the passengers. It was amusing. First time I've ever heard an F/A sing, onboard an a/c at least.
