Funny Airplane Deboarding Announcements...Chuckle

Sat Jul 28, 2001 2:50 am

Was on an ORD-SJC flt. At the very end, after the aircraft comes to a complete stop and the seatbelt sign flashes off and the cabin dings to signal that we are free to get up, the F/A announces:

"All rise."

Which is met by a few minutes of laughter from the deboarding passengers.

Anyone else experienced strange/sick/humorous deboarding announcements?

On my friend's flight on Southwest:

"We're there."


Nothing else was said.

I saw this posted on a message board on another website regarding Southwest fight that had just arrived in PHX.

"For those of you who will be leaving us here in PHX, I have a traffic alert to pass along to you, especially if you will be driving east on I-10 toward Gilbert and Ahwautukee. You need to be on the lookout for a black Chevy Cavalier coupe travelling at a very high rate of speed. That will be me--I'm going home!"

And although this other one wasn't a deboarding announcement, I'm throwing it in here anyway because I thought it was funny.

On a US Airways flight - "After takeoff, we'll be dimming the cabin lights to make our flight attendants look more attractive."

Southwest into OKC, as the plane was parking, it stopped just short of the jetway. The FA came on and said "Not yeeeetttt...", then as it parked and the chime went off she came back on and said (really rapidly) "Okay everybody get off".

At Heathrow in a BA Super-shuttle 757. As I was boarding, the captain came on the PA. "Heathrow delivery, this is Shuttle 5VJ, a 757 at stand B21 requesting clearance to Manchester please." "Heathrow delivery, this is Shuttle 5VJ, requesting clearance." "Heathrow delivery--" followed by an expletive and "sorry, wrong button".


On a heavily delayed bmi flight to Manchester "ladies and gentlemen, welcome to manchester. The time is 2am and the weather outside is yadda yadda...it's late. You don't really wanna know all this, do you? Thank's for flying us."

On landing in Providence, R.I. in December while flying with Southwest: "Welcome to sunny Honolulu!"

After a landing where the captain had applied brakes hard, "Whoooooaaaaaaaa!"

While taxiiing at Manchester, N.H. on Southwest: "We hope that the next time you get the crazy idea of shooting yourself through the air at five hundred miles per hour in a pressurized metal tube, you'll think of us because nobody loves you or your money more than Southwest Airlines!"

Just before arrival at the gate: "Please be careful when opening the overhead bins because shift happens."

And similarly: "Please check the overhead bins and the space under the seat in front of you for any personal belongings you may have brought onboard. Anything left behind will be divided up among the crew!"

These are some of the best ones I could find.

From the pilot during his welcome message: "We are pleased to have some of the best fight attendants in the industry.... Unfortunately none of them are on this flight..!"


"Your seat cushions can be used for flotation and in the event of an emergency water landing, please take them with our compliments!"



"As you exit the plane, please make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses."

This wasn't a debriefing announcement, I read this in Airways:
At Houston, a Continental flight to Los Angeles was at at a double gate and was at the "A" jetway. The flight at "B" jetway was going to somewhere in the carribean.

Both Continental flights were boarding at the same time, and there were countless announcements about which flight was at which gate.

On the Carribean(forgot what city) flight, somebody over heard this message from two girls,

" I never knew we had to go over so much water to get to Los Angeles."

If you don't get it, those people were on the wrong flight.

I was on a late Continental flight (757) from IAH to EWR. The plane was a third full.

Before (or after, can't remember when) the safety announcement the FA said:

"If everybody could please move to a window seat, that way our competitors will see we have a full flight."

You had to be there, it was quite funny when he said it.

Oddly enough one of the Virgin Blue FA's pulled off a line that was almost identical to Flight152's Dont leave spouse and children line!!!.......I wonder if the FA's are given a book with a number of jokes in it!!..

SOme others on the same Virgin BLue flight were:

1) After arriving at 1800 the FA says "Baggage can be collected any time after 0600 tomorrow morning!"

2) On the MEL - ADL flight (australia) "Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to Barbados".
The funniest part pf this was the group of Americans who actually thought the FA was serious!!..... Appoliges to all the amercians reading this.

3) "Would cabin crew please disarm doors and re-apply makeup".

4) While going through emergency procedure. "Put the life vest over your head like this........and please mind your hairdo!"

Thats all i can remember off the top of my head. Comapred to the regular Qantas and Ansett boredom drone.........it was a very refreshing flight!!

Funny stuff guys!!!

Here's a few that I've envountered:

On a Southwest Airlines flight MDW-CLE, as the plane landed and the brakes were applied HARD... the captain says, "Whooooaah, slow down big mama!!!!"

Recent United flight (just last week) from ORD-LGA, captain comes on the PA as we were boarding and says: "For those of you just joining us, we would like to inform you that we might have a bit of a delay. Our oil gauge seems to have a slight malfunction as it is not giving us the reading that we want so we called and dispatch one of our fine United mechanics to take a look at our dipstick to see if we have enough oil to make it New York. Running out of oil is a bad thing, especially on airplanes, so we appreciate your patience." And then a few minutes later when the flight attendants were performing their safety routine, the announcement said: "We would like to point out several safety features on this oil-filled Boeing 727..."

Coming back from LGA to ORD on the same trip, again on United, we experienced heavy delay (close to 4 hours) due to a bad storm in ORD so all flights from all airlines to Chicago were delayed. Needless to say, once the weather was cleared, all flights from different airlines to Chicago were reinstated and left pretty much at the same time. Finally, we were airborne and the pilot gets on about 20 minutes after take-off: "Ladies and gentlemen, as some of you may have noticed, we are currently performing numerous 360's, in fact we are currently heading eastbound towards the Atlantic Ocean at this time. This is what we were instructed to do and is neccesary for seperation of aircraft due to the large amount of flights going to Chicago at this time. And more importantly, we would like to assure you that WE ARE NOT LOST! We know exactly what we are doing and we promise to be headed westbound in just a few minutes. In the meantime, just sit back and enjoy the flight......" I thought this was hilarious and gave a lot of angry passengers a good laugh.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

A few weeks before the infamous QF1 incident/accident (whatever you want to call it), Qantas had an incident at Perth where a 747-238 was battling heavy crosswinds and windshear. It aborted 1 landing and tried to land on the other runway, which incidently is just over 2kms long. It landed , but very heavily and also struck an engine on the ground. However, the next comment from the FA was "Welcome to Earth, errrr, I mean Perth"

just had one today, we came into pensacola in our DL 727 and approach was smooth, but we had quite a smack into the runway. No bounce, the plane was just really planted onto the runway and it got a lot of comments out of everyone  Smile Well as we came to the gate the captain came on the PA and said

" Ladies and gentlemen, sorry for the delay of our flight and I would also like to explain our bumpy landing, we have a new captain on board in the back of the a/c with us today and I was showing him how not to land a 727... hopefully he can forget his navy training and learn the art of greasing  Smile "

it so happened that the pilot he was referring to was sitting right in front of me and the whole planned laughed really hard. It was hilarious. It takes a great pilot to make people forget about the sometimes serious things. Anyhow, it was real smooth and something I will not likely forget

Well here is one from NW... not too funny but here goes:

We were on approach into MEM on a 757 this last June and passing through the tops of the usual cumulus build ups that happen in the south. The captain came on explaining the bumps caused by the clouds and said we were about to pass through another in about 7 seconds. We passed through the top, and he came back on and said "well, that was 8 seconds, but who's counting?"

Holy god you guys, my stomach hurts I'm laughing so hard!

I was on a flight from LA to Seoul in '94 and I remember the captian saying something rather odd:

"Hello everyone, we welcome you to Korean Air flight something ... something, our flight today will take 11 hours and 59 minutes -- not 12 hours!"

The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

in '95 or so on A Delta flight (SFO-DFW) we fly over Death Valley... he pilot announces this... then he comes back on, not 10 minutes later, and says, "from the lowest point to the highest point... Mount McKinley."

Well, for one thing, Mount McKinley is in Alaska... another thing... WE'RE IN THE MDDLE OF THE DESERT!!!

I recall one spring trip I took from ORD to EWR in a UAL DC-10. It was a rough flight, the flight attendants were in their jumpseats for the entire flight. The approach to EWR was also rough and there was a strange silence in the cabin. The pilot pulled off a decent landing despite the conditions. As we turned off the active, the flight attendant said "Once again skill and technology have triumphed over fear and darkness, On behalf of United Airlines I would like to welcome you to Newark." We passengers released our pent-up tension with a huge laugh!

This did not happen to me, but I can't remember if it was a friend or I just heard it somewhere. In any event, after a rather hard landing at DFW, on an AA 757, the F/A came on and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain seated with your seatbelts fastend until the captain taxi's what left of the aircraft to our gate." Not hilarious, but amusing.

When I flew USAir Express Beach 1900D ,the captain said welcome to flight XXX with service to Dulles. An old passenger yelled up in a panicked tone 'Dallas,I don't want to go to Dallas!!'
When I flew DEN-ORD last year the captain said 'look for a lot of bumps and turbulence on the ride up,just a typical summer day in denver'-he wasn't kidding!

About 20 minutes after boarding a BA 747 @ Heathrow for a flight to JFK we still hadn't moved. Then the Captain comes on and announces that one of the passengers had 'spotted a small rodent on board and since the US authorities won't take allow us into the country, we will have to change aircraft.' (or words to that effect - I have it all on video).

Funny thing is, quite a few people laughed at the time, however very few were laughing 10 hours later when we were still sitting at Heathorw waiting for an aircraft.

Another occasion: After arriving a little late into EWR with Virgin Atlantic we had another delay whilst waiting for an Swissair pilot to clear the gate. So the rather talkative (and tired) Captain comes on and decides to berate the poor guy, giving us a play by play commentary of his incompetence. It got quite some laughs.

I think this topic has highlighted how much we really like it when the flight crews act like human beings (whilst still be professional). I always like it when there is a talkative Captain on my flight and when the F/A's are happy.

Two Ones From ORD

Fri Aug 03, 2001 12:08 am

Here's two different ones from ORD :

Coming in from Düsseldorf on UA953 the captain taxied towards terminal five, all the way past it, back onto the taxiway, back onto the apron after a while and finally approached gate M19. Her announcement : "Well, as some of you may have noticed, we have taken the scenic route today. If ysou care to give us an extra tip for the tour, we will be standing at the door when you get off the plane"

The second one, same flight but about half a year later, happened after we had been taxiing quite some time after landing on O'Hare. After about ten or fifteem minutes the captain announced "Well folks, we have just been instructed that we will have to taxi to the Milwaukee terminal today, so sit back and relax and enjoy the ride"

I was on an NW 727 from MSP to CLE. At the beginning of the flight the pilot announced that the copilot would be flying this segment. After a smooth and enjoyable flight we had a somewhat hard landing that included a big bounce due to a sudden wind gust, the pilot announces that "on the behalf of NWA and Copilot XXXX, we'd like to thank you for dropping into CLE with us!"

The worst final boarding call I've heard was on a NW flight from BDL to MSP. The cabin door had closed and to get everyone in their seats for pushback the pilot had a locomotive whistle that he blew and said Alllllllll Aboard!

This one was still while we were in the air but we were on aproach to BWI in a CO flight from IAH. We had been delayed in HOuston because of rain.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, we have five minutes to land this aircraft, disembark and reembark and be in the air again on the next flight. Thank you for choosing Continental."
Unfortunately some people who were on business didnt think it was funny and got mighty angry.

In summer 1994, ATA was regularly transporting bosnian refugees to US trough Zagreb airport.
It was a mid-day and there was no bigger movements on the tarmac. Together with ATA's L1011, there was only few UN's Ilushins 76, some Hercules and one or two Croatia Airlines ATR's.
ATA's a/c was parked between those aircrafts, quite far from the passenger terminal. I was standing on the front door of the L1011 talking with the stewardess and waiting for the bus with passengers. She was looking towards our (at that time not nice looking) terminal, and she said:
"You sure have a nice cargo terminal... Hope I'll see the passenger terminal one day..."
"Yeah, we do..." - I answered, really ashamed...

On a CO 735 from MSP to EWR one late afternoon, after we had been standing on the taxiwaz for a while, because there was some emergency landing coming in and no takeoffs were possible from that runway, the captain apologized trough the intercom : "Well folks, it looks like this is going to take a while, so I am going to switch the seat belt signs off. If you feel like walking around or using the lavatories, please don`t hesitate to do so. Also, if you have good eyesight and can look up into the windows of the NW D10 next to us, you might be able to watch their inflight entertainment in case you get bored.
