Kaum zu glauben, aber diese und ähnliche Ansagen an die Passagiere
sind tatsaechlich schon gemacht worden

1. From a Southwest Airlines employee: "There may be 50 ways to leave
 your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane."

2. Pilot: "Folks, we have reached our cruising altitude now,
so I am going to switch the seat belt 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."

3. After landing: "Thank you for flying Delta Business Express. We hope you enjoyed
giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for  a ride."

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

5. After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Memphis,
 a flight attendant on a Northwest flight announced: "Please take care
 when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that
sure as hell everything has shifted."

6. From a Southwest Airlines employee: "Welcome aboard Southwest Flight
XXX to YYY. To operate your seatbelt, insert the metal tab into the
buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seatbelt 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,
oxygen 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 two small children, decide now which one you love more."

7. "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 Southwest Airlines."

8. "Your seat cushions can be used for flotation. In the event of an
emergency water landing, please take them with our compliments."

9. "As you exit the plane, please make sure to gather all of your belongings.
Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the
flight attendants.   Please do not leave children or supouses."

10. "Last one off the plane must clean it."

11. From the pilot during his welcome message: "We are pleased to have some of
the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately none of them are on this flight."

12. This was overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo,
Texas, on a particularly windy and bumpy day. During the final approach,
the captain was really having to fight it. After an extremely hard
landing, the flight attendant came on the PA and announced, "Ladies and
gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo. Please remain in your seats with your
seatbelts fastened while the captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!"

13. 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."

14. 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 XYZ airline."
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 gotten offexcept for this little old lady
walking with a cane. She said, "Sonny, did we land or were we shot down?"

15. After a real crusher of a landing in Phoenix, the flight attendant
 got on the PA and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, please remain in your
seats until Captain Crash and the crew have brought the aircraft to a
screeching halt up 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."
