Naw, I think the flight attendants are encouraged to do that sort of thing.

/best line I ever heard on a SW flight duringthe safety instructions: "...and if you're traveling with small children, dear God why?"

Why would he get fired? He said everything he was supposed to say.

Southwest is the best. Love them.

There's a particularly sassy crew that flies between San Antonio & Dallas. Lots of giggles. But my favorite line was from the pilot just after the pre-take-off instructions, clear for take-off, etc. "Hold on tight, folks. We're gonna try somethin new today."

I was crackin up. Don't know what everyone else's problem was.


/he just kidding-ed us a couple seconds later, it was fine

I don't actually fly Southwest except for the occasional L.A. to Vegas trip, so I don't really know how they are.  In this litigious society, though, an employee's ass is on the line just about any time they do anything without a company's stamp of approval.  Especially when it comes to something like safety regulations.  Their bean counters live in fear of that one little old lady claiming the reason she fell out of her seat was because she couldn't understand "that rappity rap nonsense".

However, if they're cool with it, then good on them.

I've always been a fan of Southwest. The cattle line to get a seat sucks, but the rest of the experience is enjoyable.

I'd have been laughing right along with you.

Nothing wrong with someone enjoying their work.

/the smaller the plane, the larger the 'attendant'

Is this the same guy that Southwest had perform the rap at the annual board meeting?

I believe it is. They love this guy.

I love Southwest.

The first few times I took Southwest I thought the way they did the safety instructions were great. All about having fun and trying to make it better. But the last year I took a few flights and they have been the standard dry speach.. Do they still have fun?

Loved the rap, but fark the author for this crap: "This would have been more awesome if all the white people on the flight could clap to the beat."

umm_Sure: Do they still have fun?


Yes.

It must have just been the legs I have been on from Denver.

Good because I think it's a great thing.

I think part of the reason Southwest does stuff like this is to lighten the mood but on this level it does run the risk of just making people who are already stressed, tired, frustrated and generally pissed off even more so.

It does however grab you attention.  Usually when I get on a plane I pay no attention to the safety speech.  I've heard it enough and I am at least vaguely aware of the nearest exit.

This video is probably the first time I've actually paid attention to the entire safety speech in well over 20 years.

A few years ago on a Southwest flight - I forget which airport  - we landed on an outer runway that required an extra-long taxi to the gate.   It went on so long that it felt like being on a bus instead of a plane.  One of the attendants was on the PA the whole time, making a string of jokes about it.  The only one I remember now went something like "sorry for the delay but I asked the pilot to swing by my ex-boyfriend's place to see if he's home".

I suspect it was a routine she did whenever they landed there.   Filled the time perfectly, and earned her a round of applause when we reached the gate.

/yay southwest for encouraging her shenanigans
