Not a cabin announcement, but a good joke:

Enter a name and you will find out where the bags went! But, read the disclaimer:

Quote:
Be glad your bags get to visit such neat places. Apparently, Alaska Airlines is really into keeping your bags with you wherever you go. How completely lame is that?

A cabin announcement:

Scroll down to "We Swear this is True!" and describes a whole bunch of cabin annoncements heard on an AS SFO-SEA flight.
Some things are actually better at 30,000+ feet...

On AA they've started this whole "Time to turn off electronics, cellphones, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, blah blah blah"

it was funny the first time, but now annoying.


Viva their turkey wraps though, love those things.

On NWA they have announcements stating that they need exact change when purchasing drinks/food, or the remaining amount will go to the NWA flight attendants retirement fund.

On one flight from my Grandparent's place in Oreagon (near MFR) back home to Southern California-- either UA or AS-- on landing the announcement was made:

"Welcome to Ontario, California. We hope this is where you were going. The local time is xx:yy and it will be just a few minutes while we taxi to the gate. We ask that you refrain from smoking until you are well inside the terminal and in a designated smoking area. As this is California, that would be either Nevada or Arizona. Thank you for flying xyz and we hope to see you again soon."

Then there's the report from my grandmother that on her Horizon flight the FAs did the safety briefing as a (literal) song and dance number, but I didn't see that one first hand...

"ladies and gents for those on the right hand of the plane you can see the xx and yy islands in the Caribbean, for those on the left you can watch those on the right as they look out the window" this was on a BA flight before landing into CCS.

On my recent hop on Midwest Express, Skyway...

flying MKE to Appleton ATW


"Please refrain from smoking until the aircraft has reached 10,000 feet"

1 minute later

"Let me try that again, I am new at this airline... Smoking is not allowed during any portion of our flight today..etc etc etc.."

and about another minute later

"There will be no service on today's short flight, as the captain pointed out 26 minutes, but i will be coming down the back of the aisle with some Febreeze as this jet has a smell to it..."

We had a Scottish FA emulate Scotty of Star Trek fame during the take off briefing on a Alaska Airlines flight between Juneau and Seattle.

He did a great job. In flight, he did a few things over the PA system with the Captain. He had the voice down to a tee and had the entire plane laughing.  silly  One of my best Alaska flights ever.

(After a particularly rough landing at Exeter, a quick witted Flybe FA said the following)

"Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain seated while Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal!"


Another FA who had just been sacked by easyjet a few weeks before Xmas, I overheard saying to a friend, "My son has been to Santa's Grotto, Santa told me he asked for a Mickey Mouse outfit, so I said to Santa to just get him easyjet!"
I came, I saw, I Concorde! RIP Michael Jackson
