These are real announcements from pilots and cabin crew...............

1) Pilot: "Folks, we have reached cruising altitude now, so I am going to
switch the seatbelt sign off. Feel free to move about as you wish, but
please stay inside the plane till we land. It's a bit cold outside and if
you walk on the wings it affects the flight pattern."

2) Airline attendant during safety demonstration: "There may be fifty ways
to leave your lover, but there are only four ways out of this aeroplane."

3) Stewardess after a bumpy touchdown: "We ask you to please remain seated
whilst Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."

4) Loudspeaker announcement after landing: "Thank you for flying Business
Express. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed
taking you for a ride."

5) Attendant from same airline: "Welcome aboard. To operate your seatbelt,
insert the metal tab into the buckle and pull tight. If you don't know how
to operate one then you really shouldn't be out unsupervised. In the event
of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the
ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask and pull it over your face. If you
have a small child with you, secure your own mask before assisting with
theirs. If you are traveling with two small children,decide now which one
you love more".

6) Pilot: "The weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken
clouds, but they'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you,
and remember.... nobody loves you or your money more than this airline".

7) Stewardess: "Your seat cushions can be used for flotation. In an
emergency water landing, please take one with our compliments".

8) Pilot heard over loudspeaker during touchdown: "Whoa, big fella,WHOA!"

9) Flight attendant after rough landing: "Please remain in your seats with
your seatbelts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our plane
to the terminal gate".

10) Stewardess: "As you exit, please make sure to gather your belongings.
Anything left behind will be evenly distributed among the attendants.
Please do not leave children or spouses".

11) Pilot: "We are pleased to have some of the best flight attendants in
the industry.....sadly none of them are on this flight".

12) Flight attendant: " Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats
until Captain Crash and his crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching
halt up against the terminal gate. Once the tyre smoke has cleared and the
warning bells stop, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through
the wreckage to the terminal".

13) Steward: "We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And
the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in
a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of us".

14) Stewardess: "Last passenger off the plane has to clean it".

15) Loudspeaker announcement: " I don't know whether we landed or were
shot down".

16) Pilot "Welcome aboard flight 163 to New York, we shall be flying at
agggghhhh ....oh my god!... oh no!.......... sorry about that folks.I've
just spilt my coffee, you should see the front of my trousers." Passenger
- in response: "You should see the back of mine ...!!"

Flight attendant just after landing, while still taxiing to gate:
"The crew would like to ask for volunteers to stay and clean the plane. If you'd like to volunteer, simply unbuckle your seatbelt and stand up before the plane comes to a complete stop."
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! And this tiny ad too!
