Funny: Honest In-flight Announcement

Thu Sep 14, 2006 12:04 am

From The Economist:

In-flight announcements are not entirely truthful. What might an honest one sound like?

http://www.economist.com/opinion/displaystory.cfm?story_id=7884654

"On channel 11 of our in-flight entertainment system you will find a video consisting of abstract imagery and a new-age soundtrack, with a voice-over explaining some exercises you can do to reduce the risk of deep-vein thrombosis. We are aware that this video is tedious, but it is not meant to be fun. It is meant to limit our liability in the event of lawsuits."

"After take-off, the most dangerous part of the flight, the captain will say a few words that will either be so quiet that you will not be able to hear them, or so loud that they could wake the dead."

That was a great announcement! All the things mentioned are so true, and it owuld be interesting to hear them on the plane. Maybe on Southwest or something!

We know for you it's not just a seat on a flight to a place. It's a seat on a flight to your life.
