All too rarely, airline attendants make an effort to make the in flight ‘safety lecture’ a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples of funny airline cabin crew announcements:
As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Ronald Reagan, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: ‘Whoa, big fella. WHOA!’
After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Memphis, a flight attendant on a Northwest flight a announced, ‘Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as hell everything has shifted.’
From a Southwest Airlines employee: ‘Welcome aboard Southwest Flight 245 to Tampa. To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt; and, if you don’t know how to operate one, you probably shouldn’t be out in public unsupervised.’
‘In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favorite.’
‘Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but we’ll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Southwest Airlines.’
‘Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments.’

Yup, Southwest is a hoot. I am pretty sure the one announcement I mentioned the other day was on a Southwest flight. It's a shame but I hardly ever use them anymore as the only game in town is a Delta 50 seat commuter connector flight through Atlanta or I can drive about 2 and a half hours and get a non-stop from Jacksonville.
I usually choose jetBlue from JAX. Because free in-flight movies & TV.
I am cheap that way. Or thrifty. :))
Have a sensational day, hon. In fact, let's all have one. Why not?! xoxo
You're thrifty, not cheap. I'm just saying. 🙂
Regarding that last one: Who says airlines don't offer complimentary items any more? hahahaha
Well, I'll pass on that one as you will too. 🙂
Funny stuff – except the one about picking your favorite child – sorry I didn't find that one funny.
Sorry about that Rhonda. 🙂
That last one is the best. How great is that to get your very own flotation device. Sandee, You and Zane and Little Bit have on wonderful day.
Yes, but what you have to do to get it is what I don't want to do. 🙂
LOL quite witty aren't they, sometimes on the London Underground here you here some funny announcements out of the blue that cracks everyone up haha!
Have a flighttastic day Sandee :-h
Yes, very witty. I love some fun on an otherwise boring flight. 🙂
No. 1 strikes a chord with me. I always pictured the pilot and co-pilot with both hands clutched to the wheel and both feet trying to push the brake pedals through the floorboard of the aircraft.
Now I've got that stuck in my mind too. Thanks. 🙂
Numbers two and three totally cracked me up!! Have a great day! xoxo
I'm glad you were totally cracked up. That's a good thing. You have a great day too. 🙂
I enjoyed the stewadess that song her announcements. Now that was interesting and thoughtful.
Have a wet Thursday Sandee because we are having rain coming down in buckets this morning. Sorry about that. See ya.
I'll take all the rain you want to send down here. 🙂
These are really laugh-out-loud finny. A perfect way to start my day.
Glad you help you start your day on the right foot. 🙂
Those who didn't know how to buckle a seat belt are out of the freeways and also vote.
Oh so true. Oh so true. 🙂
A good start to a bright, sunny day! Have a wonderful day!
Thank you Nancy. Glad I could help start your day out right. 🙂
Sandee, these are great, and the first one made me laugh so hard!!! 🙂
Have a fabulous day Linda, filled with lots of laughter. 🙂
These are much more fun than all that boring stuff! Who wants boring?!
Big hugs, honey…
I've been on some long boring flights. No fun at all. 🙂
I love Southwest and Horizon has great comedians on board also!
Yes, Southwest has some great comics. Not been on Horizon. 🙂
Good ones. I loved the one on oxygen masks!
Have a great day!
Don't tell Rhonda, but I really liked that one too. 🙂
Haha, boy oh boy! I wish every airline flight was required to do one of these! Hilarious!!
Yes, it would make flying so much nicer. 🙂
pick your favorite… h-( g-)
I loved that one. A lot. 🙂
Those are funny. My last Southwest flight didn't include anything like that, but the flight attendants and the pilot were very attentive to me because of my fear of flying. They tried to make my experience a happy one during the flight and when we deplaned, they were all holding up their to me for high fives. I think high fives are goofy, but I enjoyed returning these.
That was very nice of them. Really. 🙂
These are all good. Laughed at the pick your favorite. According to my daughter my favorite is my son but he says it's her that's the favorite. I guess I should never travel with them, I don't want to break the tie…lol
I hate to admit it, but it's my favorite too. 🙂
Heeheehee! The comedy alone almost makes it worth the price of the ticket!
Almost is the operative word here. 🙂
#4 was my pick of the bunch.
Mine too, but don't tell Rhonda. 🙂
I never got to keep a seat cushion…
You have to be in a crash on the water. I'd be proud of not having that seat cushion. 🙂
#3 was the best of the bunch for sure!
And there are so many that need that instruction. 🙂
Those are some really good ones. #3 and 4 were my favorites.
Yep, there is a lot of fodder on an airliner. 🙂
