i never made funny announcements, the thing is on emirates or any government owned airline, you have to go by the book... except for some times when you need to make some announcments and inform the passengers about some thing that just came up

Sorry, I think there's a misunderstanding: I've always been "fascinated" in cabin anouncement, I don't want you to tell me funny anouncement, just the standards anoucement before take off "Welcome on board, etc..." and after landing "thank you for having flown with us, etc..."

After the experience of a 12 week "stage"/internship with Air France at TLS, I never heard any announcements out of the ordinary. While the French have a stereotype for being lax about the execution of procedures, it is my experience that they are rarely funny.

I could recite the boarding process announcement for you though!

AOMlover, here it goes...forgive my errors in grammar and remember, this announcement can vary, it is not the only way to say it. The part about the non-smoking and the portables is often not said. Sorry, don't konw the safety announcement...but it's much shorter than those here in the US! And they really do need to work on the translations!

Fly_Emirates, the announcements sound great! A far cry from those of US carriers. Emirates has an excellent world-wide reputation, I'm sure you know that. Albeit the airlines fly different routes, appeal to different types of fliers, the US carriers need to follow suit. On recent travels, I found any and all announcements to be abrupt and un-courteous.

Gdabski, thank you for the link !
Fly Emirates, thank you very much, your rep^ly is very helpful !
Flpuck6, in Summer 2000 I travelled with AOM in an MD83 from Marseille to Paris, and the cabin crew did the demo (in A340's and DC10's there are videos). I tried to remember what was told, I think it was:
Before pushback:
"Mesdames et Messieurs la compagnie AOM est heureuse de vous accueillir à bord de cet MD83. Notre vol étant complet ce soir nous vous demandons de bien vouloir occuper les places qui vous ont été attribuées lors de l'enregistrement"
After doors closure, the captain said something like "Commandant de bord à équipage, renndre compte"
then, "AOM vous souhaite la bienvenue à bors de ce MD 83. Notre vol à destination de Paris Orly aura une durée de 1h.20mn. environ."
and the safety demo began (I only remember some specific sentences):
"Nous vous rappelons que vous devrez garder vos ceintures de sécurité attachées et vos tabelettes relevees durant les phases de décollage, d'aterrissage et si nous traversons des zones de turbulance. Vous ne pourrez détacher vos ceintures de sécurité seulement losrque la consigne lumineuse au dessus de vous dera éteinte, cependant nous vous conseillons de gardez vos ceintures attachées tant que vous restez assis. Les ceintures de sécurité s'attachent, s'ajustent et se détachent de cette manière." "en cas de dépressurisation de la cabine, des masques à oxygène se présenteront automatiquement à votre portée. Si cela se produit, prenez un masque, placez l'emboutr devant votre bouche, enfilez l'élastique derrière votre tete et respirez normalement. Si un enfant se trouve à côté de vous, aidez-le". "Cet appareil possède 8 issues de secours: 2 à l'avant, deux au niveau des ailes et 2 a l arriere de l appareil. Ces issues de secours vous sont indiquées par des panneaux "exit". Dans le cas d'une évacuation de l'appareil, leur cheminement vous sera facilite par des marquages lumineux au sol." "(in the A340) en cas d'amerrissage, vous trouverez des gilets de sauvetage. En classe Azur, ces gilets se trouvent sous vos sièges. En classe Opale, ces gilets se trouvent entre vos sièges. Pour utiliser votre gilet de sauvetage, enfilez-le, attachez la sangle autour de votre taille. Pour gonfler votre gilet, tirez sur la sangle rouge. Le gonflage des gilets de sauvetage s'effectue à l'extérieur de l'appareil et sur ordre de l'équipage" "Nous vous rappelons que ce vol est exclusivement non-fumeur. Il est également interdit de fumer dans les toilettes. En cas de non respect de cette interdiction, une alarme sonore retentira." " Vous trouverez un recapitulatif de ces consignes de securité dans la plaquette situee en face de vous".
Then the captain spoke "Je vous souhaite la bienvenue a bord et je vous demande de respecter l interdiction de fumer."
Before take off:"Equipage en position decollage" puis "Décollage dans la minute".
After landing: "Merci d'avoir choisi AOM. Nous nous excusons pour le retard. Nous vous rappelons que vous ne devrez pas detacher vos ceintures de securite avant l arret complet de l appareil. La sortie s'effectue a l avant gauche de l appareil. Lres passagers en correspondance pour la Réunion pourront s'adresser a notre hotesse d'escale pour des renseignements concernantleur correspondance".
Perhaps I've forot some things...

Always made me grin when the say about the oxygen mask usage to "breathe NORMALLY"! Who would be breathing that way IF the masks have deployed? I don't think too many people would IF they said "attempt to breathe normally" maybe?
