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.
Lets see how long we can get our list!
