Has anyone EVER heard something like this for real?This (and similar lists) have been circulating on the net for years but I've never heard anything remotely like such statements from airliner crew.I've once or twice heard small jokes from train conductors, but only on very late night trains going back to the barn which were all but empty (and then nothing as black as most of these).They're funny though, but getting a bit repetitive.

I've never heard FA's crack jokes on European airlines, Asian airlines or Latin American airlines. Same holds true for about 90 pct. of U.S. airlines. But SWA and Frontier both are famous for "spicing up" the FA announcements as well as many of the commuter airlines. I flew SWA a month ago, and these are among the jokes I've heard cracked by the FA's on that flight and other flights I've taken with them, as well as one non SWA flight. While I can't recall the exact words, they go roughly like this:~On my flight last month:"In case of loss of cabin pressure, if you are seated next to a child or someone acting like a child, place the mask over your nose and mouth first""I know you find the safety card boring, but at least pretend you're reading so we don't feel bad""Turn off electronic devices and stow them for takeoff, as they may interfere with radio and navigation equipment. If you leave them on, we won't take responsibility for where this flight will land.~On a SWA flight between Ontario and Phoenix:"In case of a water landing, please use the bottom of your seat cushion as a flotation device. Exit the aircraft, and dive screaming into the desert and await rescue (The largest body of water on that route is the 100 yard width of the Colorado river)."~On a SWA flight to BWI a few years back..."Our flight to Honolulu will be approx six hours...."~On the return flight"Our flight is full. If you think you won't have someone sit next to you by avoiding eye contact, you're wrong." ~On an American Eagle ATR flight in '94, operated by Simmons airlines:"FA: Your pilots are tweedle dum and tweedle dee."FA entered the restroom shortly after that"Pilots: While Sherry is in the restroom, we want take a moment to tell you it is her birthday. Please applaud loudly and offer congrats when she exits the restroom."Sherry was about as red as I've ever seen someone, including my sunburn last year in Florida.Having logged about 100K miles a year until my daughter was born over a twelve year stretch, I heard just about all. But it was some ground humor in Mexico that changed my life forever. I had to visit Mexicana's ticket office to book a complicated routing through Mexico and back to the States on a two month stint there installing some Novell LAN's. My partner on the trip was hassling the Mexicana agent asking to be booked on first class. The pretty agent fluttered her eyes, and silenced my partner with "On Mexicana, EVERY seat is first class". We've been married ten years. My wife often asks me what it was that first caught my eye, and I said it was the way she delivered that line. She said it was the standard line given all passengers who pull the "I want first class" routine.Anyway, it's a long post I made Jeroen, but I've heard these jokes in the air and on the ground, as I suspect many here have. You just have to be in the right place at the right time :)-John

I've flown Westjst a lot and I've heard a lot of these. They try for the "down home folksy" attitude. Frankly, it gets kind of old, especially coming from a teenaged flight attendant that you wouldn't trust to take you across a crosswalk let alone lead you out of a burning aircraft...billg

I heard this from a Westjet FA:"Ladies and gentleman, my name is xxx and I have the pleasure today of flying with my husband, Capt. xxx. Unfortunately, I also have the misfortune of flying today with my ex-husband, First Officer xxxxx..."It drew a laugh.BlairCYOW

Yes, I have.3 or 4 different occasions.Twice on Southwest airlines. (mild though)Once on Midway Airlines, back in the day... ;-)And once the whole flight on a charter called Laker Air from O'hare to Grand Bahamas Island, complete with toilet paper roll races, wisecracks, and thorough abuse of all the passengers including something along the lines of, if we go down in the water, screw this announcement cause we're all gonna die anyway. :-)And flight attendants insisting we needed to drink more cause the pilot keeps asking for leftovers. ;-)We were roiling the whole flight, drinks were flowing, and it was the most fun flight I've ever had. Period.Not sure if laker Air is around anymore. This was back in 92 or 93.Regards,JoePS- Follow-up. Resort has been closed since Hurricane Francis, and Airline has ceased operations for now. Same 727's though. :-)Website is here:http://www.lakerbahamas.com/aopa.gif" border="0" alt="Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]
