Cute!

I saw Pam Ann in Sydney once - she's hilarious! She takes the piss out of Cabin Crew so very well!
I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!

Sorry, slightly off topic, but is BA altering their logo to the one they use on the 'upgrade to BA' adverts?

Oh my gawd that hair! I have never heard of her before, but i love the commercials. In some ways a pretty easy spoof to do but nice to see BA having some fun with it. Just enough over the top without being too annoying.

Loved the safety demo with the life jacket, big hair + little hole for the head and it inflating to make it much worse.

Yes - the text is a lighter blue and is to the right of the speedmarque rather than to the left and a little below.

ME NOT TAKIN' THE GUCCI-BOOTS OFF  Wink)

yeeey... Pam Ann is great! I loved the onboard announcement in "Italian"...

Great that they are still using the music, Pam uses in her show, when she is talking about BA... always makes me laugh when I hear that music in the background.


here's one of her best performances (including the BA background music) :

It most certainly is, and I was at the DVD Recording show... over two hours of Pam's spot on observation and wit - it was her best show ever, by far. And a great mix of international and no-frills crew in the audience to help her!

**BTW - HMV pre-order is cheaper than Amazon!

Speaking of the music, does anyone know what it's called? I rather like it.

Pam Ann is an absolute legend. The viral marketing seems to be working as I've had lots of non-airline people telling me they've seen it and think it's hilarious. I was at the DVD recording and I'm hoping not too much of it will be edited, it's an instant classic.
The fact is we don't make the same mistake more than 3 times....maybe 4!

Damn right she should do stuff with BA, who helps fill up her sold out shows over here after all?

(And she has said that she gets many of her jokes from what BA crews tell her, such as what some crew say CSD-the Cabin Service Director, really stands for - 'C*** Standing at Door').

Well spotted! From what I've heard, this is now the way the BA logo is shown. The Mylius font has also been slightly altered.

Now back to the main topic! Pam Ann is just amazing! Well done BA!

Why is this funny again? It's not original, and certainly not as creative as the umpteen python, kids in the hall, SNL, mad tv, family guy, simpsons, bob and margaret, zucker bros, etc. sketches/spoofs of airline service that came before it.

It must be funny to people who are already familiar with Pam Ann and thus laugh because of that familiar connection, because taken on it's own, it's kinda lame.

Buh-bye...  Wink

Yep, from Lakme, by Delibes (although it's famous enough to be known as just flower duet).

Ah, excellent. Thanks gentlemen. Think I'd fly BA just for their good taste in music.

The thing that cracks me up is that life jacket manufacturers do, in fact, specially make a demo version of their vests with an extra large hole, which makes it easier for the cabin crew to don without messing up their hair!

Lighten up man. Appreciate it for what it is - all the other sketches you list are entertainment programmes - this is a recruitment piece. How many other airlines can you name would take this angle, and have a laugh at themselves in the process? Not many, certainly not Stateside anyway
