  • Look..Up in the Sky...

    On a Southwest flight (SW has no assigned seating, you just sit where you want) passengers were apparently having a hard time choosing, when a flight attendant announced, "People, people we're not picking out furniture here, find a seat and get in it!"

    On landing, the stewardess said, "Please be sure to take all of 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 out of this airplane"

    "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."

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

    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."

    "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 traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favorite."

    "As you exit the plane, 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 spouses."

    And from the pilot during his welcome message: "Delta Airlines is pleased to have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"

    An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with
    a cane. She said, "Sir, do you 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?"

    Very funny...

    I don't know about the rest of the airlines mentioned, but I have traveled on SouthWest and they do have so much fun with their announcements. On one trip, we had a layover. When the passengers who were not continuing on with this flight had departed, the pilot came out of the cockpit and announced that he was going to get something to eat at one of the fast food stores in the airport. He asked if anyone wanted something. Those of us who were hungry gave him our orders and money. He did say "thank you for your contributions to the poor pilot fund", but did return with our orders and change. Now that's what I call service. I will fly SouthWest, again.

      I used to fly Southwest quite often - my favorite song, to the tune of the Barney "I love you..." song:

      We love you, you love us,
      We're much cheaper than a bus
      So enjoy some Southwest hospitality,
      Marry one of us and you fly free!"

        Okay, you guys are going to think I'm a freak as I have never flown before but those were still really funny.

        I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
        1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
        2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
        I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

        I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

          I flew once and no one was smiling. Passengers or crew. Are these real sayings?

            I've been on one or two fun flights, but usually they are pure business now.

              Those are great! It really helps to have flight attendants and pilots with personalities- it makes traveling much less stressful.
