Hilarious Southwest Flight attendant does the safety talk like you’ve never heard it (video)

I had no idea, until I took a recent Southwest Airlines flight, that the flight attendants have their own unique way of going through the safety speech before the flight.

“And if you’re traveling with small children, we’re sorry.”

It’s generally hilarious. This one is the best I’ve heard yet.

It’s not too long, and I think you’ll enjoy it.

    Also see http://www.snopes.com/photos/airplane/kulula.asp. Scroll down towards the bottom to hear their safety instructions. I’ve never flown Kulula, but I’d like to.

    Most attention I have ever seen paid to the safety instructions on any flight. Ever. And you know what, this is great advertising for the airline, if they are smart enough to realize it.

    Yeah, it’s one of the things that can make SW flights a bit more entertaining.

    Air New Zealand, on the other hand, does it like a classic Monte Python military exercise:

    “Flight Attendants, begin safety briefing! …wait for it…NOW!”

    Either they’re deadly serious or super incredibly deadpan, I’m not sure which.

    Well that sounds well-practiced. I have heard some of those bon mots from other FA’s. They must all share the same book.

    I am one of those old school travelers who nostalgically recalls the good old days, before Pan Am (may she rest in peace) folded, and before people routinely took flights in yoga pants and flip flops. Air travel was an occasion to be savored. Getting there was half the fun. Cabin staff were friendly, perky even, but on the reserved side.

    Give me the serious no-nonsense safety demo of a United FA to the rhyming slang and cow-tipping jokes one hears on budget airlines. And above all keep the booze and warmed nuts coming.

    Reminds me of the legendary flight attendant whose name tag read: “Hey, Miss”
