    Flight Attendants Announcements
    All too rarely, airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and their other announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported:


    On an Air NZ Flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."


    On landing the hostess said, "Please be sure to take all your belongings. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have."


    "There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways to leave the aircraft."


    As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Auckland, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: "Whoa, big fella. WHOA!"


    After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Adelaide, a flight attendant on a Qantas flight announced, "Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as f*** everything has shifted."


    From a Qantas employee: "Welcome aboard Qantas Flight XXX to YYY. 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 travelling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are travelling with more than one small child, pick your favourite.


    "Weather at our destination is 32 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 Qantas 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."


    "Should the cabin lose pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the overhead area. Please place the bag over your own mouth and nose before assisting children... or other adults acting like children."


    Heard on Qantas Airlines just after a very hard landing in Hobart: The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was quite a bump, and I know what you are all thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault... it was the asphalt!"


    Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: " We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."


    An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a "Thanks for flying United. "He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had got off except for an old lady walking with a cane. She said,"Sonny, mind if I ask you a question?" "Why no Ma'am," said the pilot. "What is it?" The little old lady said, "Did we land or were we shot down?"


    After a real crusher of a landing in Sydney, the Flight Attendant came on with, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Capt. Crash and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal."


    Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement: "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 Qantas."


    A plane was taking off from Mascot Airport. After it reached a comfortable ruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number XYZ, non-stop from Sydney to Auckland. The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have smooth and uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax - ********! ARGHHH! OH, MY WORD!" Silence followed and after a few minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier, but, while I was talking, the flight attendant brought me a cup of coffee and spilled the hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger in Economy said, "That's nothing. He should see the back of mine!"

    Re: 9th October

    Mae all - just read up on how everyone is doing... congrats to all...
    Quiet day here - I took a long walk through a cemetery early this morning... it felt a little odd, but was peaceful. Not working with a client today, so trying to focus on getting some ideas down on paper - I would like to change my work direction - but it takes thinking and planning and clarity - so basically right now Iím staring out of a big window watching the leaves fall instead!

    Lav, good news about Luna and the kittens. Great that they can take shelter in the chicken house - I hope your storm isnít too nasty.

    PPQ, happy belated Thanksgiving! Up to 80 degrees?! Crazy! It is also warm here today...

    Mick, great to hear about Jeeves getting/staying better... best of luck going forward.

    Hello to all dropping by -

    Re: 9th October

    Good evening all,

    So much for my plan to move the cat herd into the chicken house. An hour after moving them, the food, water, heating pad, etc I went out to do a welfare check. No Luna & 1 kitten missing!!! I stood & waited a few minutes & she arrived, grabbed a 2nd kitten out of the cat house & walked out. I followed her & found her stashing kittens behind the garage in some tall weeds back there where there’s a few boards leaning up against the garage wall, haha!!! So I moved everything, including Luna & the 4 kittens back up on the deck where they started out. Guess my ‘help’ wasn’t wanted or needed. They’re all settled back down now. I definitely learned something today. I’ll have to keep an eye on them when. The winds are whipping up to 40-50 mph tomorrow.
    Went to pick up my grandson after school as usual & he never showed up. He texted me a while later saying he stayed home sick with a stomach virus, his other as well. He was in my car yesterday but I haven’t come down with anything - yet!

    PQ, nothing wrong with a good chicken dinner, regardless of the holiday I happen to like turkey better so I roast one fairly frequently.
    Glad your weather. Is holding up for you. No sense in starting winter weather in the beginning of the fall season. Good that work seems to be somewhat better this week, so far.

    Cyn, glad you are out & about enjoying the fall colors. I hope we get some real colors here soon.
    I wish you lots of clarity designing your new work future. Hopefully not so much travel will be involved, that’s so tiring (at least for me).
    The dog likes TO get out on the deck & do her usual sniffing around but when she gets too close to Luna & the kittens Luna takes care of business, haha! She’s a good mama.

    Hello to the missing friends & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Re: 9th October

    MAE ALL...

    Boss finally showed up at work today and got bombarded with issues, none from me thankfully. Accountant wiped out an attendance record of a family current battling things out in court and one of the childcare staff has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and she's not doing well. Apparently there was an issue the boss had witnessed. It is very sad, she has been with us forever. Other than that I had a good productive day.

    Mick...hope you don't overdo yoga tonight. Glad the peskies are doing ok. I did manage to catch up on my sleep last night, still not great but a lot better.

    TG...interesting walk. LOL Glad you're taking another day off. Sending you good vibes for clarity but I like the idea of sitting and watching the leaves fall.

    Lav...I had to chuckle when you said Luna was relocating the kittens. Guess Mama knows best. Glad the dog isn't causing too much trouble and that Luna can take care of things. With the forecast we decided to open the tennis courts till the end of the month. Didn't take long to see the bookings appear. LOL

    It's soup and biscuits for supper tonight. Have a good evening all...PPQP

    Hiya everyone. How are we doing today then?hope everyone is doing ok. Weather here is good again today ☺️. Rabbits are sunbathing in the conservatory. I am so chuffed that Jeeves is doing so well.

    Hiya ppqp..wow it sounds like a mixed bag and not of fun either That hated disease again. And then losing the records for courts..oops. I hope today is a better one.

    Hiya lav..how are you?How's Luna and gang doing? Obviously not frightened of dogs! Have you still got the strong winds over there? Today here it is really lovely. Have you heard from your grandson? How is he doing. I see covid is on the rise over here again, however it has not got the effects or indeed the implications as it initially had. Take care and look after yourself

    Hiya teegee hope all is well with you .did you get the LpS listed?Best of luck. Hope your plans for travels go well.

    Hiya pauly and everyone else

    Re: 9th October

    Greetings friends,

    Lots of rain today but it seems to be ending. It’s getting dark so early these days.
    Luna & kitties seem to be fine. She’s keeping them dry in her hiding spot behind the garage. It’s not like I didn’t have two other preferred dry spots for her haha! I guess she knows what she’s doing. I can’t put any food out there for her though, it would attract groundhogs & raccoons so she’s still appearing on the deck for meals.

    PQ, that’s a real shame about the childcare worker. I hope she has family to look after her now.
    The next 3 days are predicted to be sunny & dry. I would love to get out of here & actually do something non-work related for a change, Lol. Glad to hear your weather is holding up too.

    Mick, make sure you share that sunshine with us tomorrow
    Glad Jeeves is happy again. We never did get those high winds they were talking about unless they’re coming later.
    My grandson is fine, he was back in school today. It was just a 24 hr variety stomach virus. I am still working on getting yB in for flu & updated covid vaccines. He’s a tough customer to convince. I keep telling him he has Amish people in his truck every day & they carry all sorts of viruses & refuse vaccines so it’s only a matter of time

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are OK.
    Hello Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 9th October

    MAE ALL...

    Just before quitting time yesterday my computer was acting up. Really slow and then finally I couldn't open anything. Spoke with my IT guy this morning and he suggested rebooting the server, it may help, otherwise he thought it might be my hard drive. The server reboot didn't help so he headed over to do a diagnostics on it. Everything looked fine. Then he clicked on a different part of the mouse (way down in the front of it) and everything worked, I had even put new batteries in it. He said the only reason he figured it out was because he'd seen it before. Although you could see the pointer it was transmitting any signal. Just something to keep in mind if your computer starts acting up.

    Mick...although it was at freezing this morning, it warmed up to 20C and was bright and sunny. I'll ship some sun off to Lav, I've got lots coming. We're all chuffed that Jeeves is doing so well. Day improved when I replaced my mouse. LOL I told the accountant all she could do was reach out to the programs support to figure out how to edit bookings without loosing any existing data. I know I could probably figure out a workaround but quite frankly I'm way too busy.

    Lav...so even after you moved her back to the deck she chose her new digs. LOL She must know something. I'm glad she still knows where the food is. Yes, the childcare worker does have family. She lives about 40 minutes west of the city and other than her watching the children we're concerned about her driving in the winter. They're still trying to figure out what to do. I saw my rheumatologist on the 5th but when I went to refill my biologic the insurance hadn't been renewed. A few phone calls, leaving messages, and someone finally called me back and said they think they've got it all sorted out. Was told to try to refill it again tomorrow, I need to take it on Saturday. So we shall see.

    TG...hope you're still slowing down and making some headway on the clarity.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 9th October

    Hiya all how are we today then?hope all is well. I am in the dentist at the moment, just a check up. Nice sunny morning yet again. Both rabbits are doing good. The meds he is on makes him a lot hungrier...

    Hiya ppqp how's you?hope all is well. You need the basic course in computer technology.
    Computer fails..switch off unplug
    Plug in and restart
    Computer fails. Swear and walk away
    Look for someone else to blame.
    No one there?open window (optional)
    Launch said computer
    Make coffee


    That will solve it short term....have a great day

    Hiya lav how are things with you then?hope all is well. Luna is lucky to have you looking after her. We were having sunshine this morning .ermmmmm not any more..it is pouring down now. Supposed to be out metal detecting this weekend, fingers crossed. Hope you have a good day.



    Hiya teegee how are you doing .hope all is good.

    Re: 9th October

    Greetings friends,

    The sun came back today so Iím happy. Somehow the kittens managed to stay dry thru all that rain yesterday. I think Luna must be a genius haha!
    Kids only had a half day of school today, donít know why. I asked my grandson if he knew why & he had no idea, LolÖ.whateverÖ..

    PQ, I am learning a lot about cat behavior, interesting creatures to say the least!
    When my ancient computer that runs my embroidery machine starts acting up I start to pray since it canít be replaced haha. YB has been able to keep it going, so far. My laptop I donít even use that much, Iím on my iPad now, just easier to use. Glad yours got straightened out. Enjoy. The sun while you have it, it comes & goes this time of year.

    Mick, glad your fur friends are happy & doing well. Hope the visit to the dentist was easy!
    I havenít watched anything about your politics lately because I am focused on ours - especially in my state. We have a TV doctor (Oz) trying to buy a senate seat & a guy who looks like a turtle wanting to be governor so he can take away womenís healthcare rights . Oz is being spurned on by Trump & the other one wants to be tRump - such BS!!

    Cyn, hello & hope you are well.

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Have a good night all!

    Lav

    Re: 9th October

    MAE ALL... It's The Weekend

    Uneventful day at work, got a lot done including my Employee Objectives for the year. Geeze, the boss is a spreadsheet fanatic!

    Mick...another checkup? Glad you're not having tooth issues. Are you nervous that the meds makes Jeeves hungrier? My weather was similar to yours, bright and sunny in the morning but the wind has picked up and it's trying to rain. Won't last long it's supposed to be a gorgeous weekend. Thanks for the computer course, that would have worked until I got to "open window", nope couldn't do that. LOL

    Lav...all elementary kids have Friday afternoons off here. Man, I swear, they're off school more than they're in school. Sure wasn't that way when I was in school. I think Luna is a genius too, you'll learn a lot from her. LOL I know you've had issues with your embroidery computer and I'm amazed that you're still able to keep it going. Guess when it finally bites the dust you'll be retiring. Hope you have many more years of stitching. I've seen some of Mick's political charades but had no idea about yours. I'm also too busy watching our provincial charades, all involving the bosses sister. We don't talk politics at work anymore. LOL

    Hello to TG, Det, Sam and Pauly. Have a good night all...PPQP
