It's better than the US Airways speech.

Just say your deal and sit down.  Because if I can't joke about airline safety, neither should you.

She was pretty good.  I've been on several SW flights where they did similar.  Refreshing, tension breaking, and people actually pay attention to the safety briefing.

Doesn't Southwest always do something like this?  She had pretty good delivery, but the few times I've flown SW, they always riffed on the safety instructions.
 
2014-04-15 03:10:32 PM
She's funny, pretty, she seems intelligent, and she looks to be about my age.

Smitten, I am.

I couldn't make it past 15 seconds without wanting to slap her.
Get it done and shut up. I just want to sleep or read.

What used to be a vibrant, interesting industry is now just an ugly exercise in cat-herding.  I haven't flown since 1999, and never plan to board an aircraft again.  Driving is much more fun and fulfilling.

I often end up on SWA if I fly. I hate it, feel like I'm being herded onto a cattle car, but my wife likes the savings... Anyway, I seem to recall, I've heard them inject a little humor, but I don't remember anything this farking good. This was funny.

You'd hate to fly out of Las Vegas. The TSA lines have several TV screens playing funny little sketches about how to get through security, featuring current Strip performers like Carrot Top or Rita Rudner. Used to annoy me a little too, but I realized that it really does make you pay attention and remember some of the important details.

I actually like Southwest.  Yeah, the cattle car thing is a bit annoying... but if you're smart about it (printing your boarding pass just at 24 hours before the flight), you can get a great seat.

The only truly comfortable flight I've ever been on was a Delta flight where we got bumped to 1st class... We were flying standby on a friend's buddy Pass, and we kept not making flights from like 6 am until 3 pm. There were a bunch of airline employees getting bumped the same way. The difference is that we were polite to the girl at the counter, checked with each flight and sat down. The other people were screaming and yelling. Anyway, we finally decided to buy a ticket, and the lady at the counter granted us the upgrade. It was nice. Front row, big, comfortable seats more like a recliner than a bus seat. Had immediate drink service, one more round before the plane took off, and two more in the air. Unfortunately, it was only an hour flight...

I've definitely flown more uncomfortable planes than SWA though.., usually puddle jumpers. One was so bad that I couldn't sit up straight because the damned curved wall was too close to my head, and I'm only 5'9" or so. I just feel like I'm already paying so much, i should at least be comfortable.

Indeed... there's nothing better than getting bumped to first class.  Happened to me once- and it was a long-ish flight.  Took quite the advantage of the free drinks!

I've read somewhere [citation needed] that these comedy routines are pretty effective. A lot of people switch off if it's just a drone of "do this/don't do that", but add in something different and people actually pay attention and learn some stuff.
I like these kind of things.

FARK SOUTHWEST.

I absolutely HATE not having a specific seat assigned and having to swarm aboard in some goofy  versuion of Airline Musical Chairs.

FARK SOUTHWEST!!!
 
2014-04-15 04:58:26 PM
That's the first time I've seen anyone pay attention to the safety briefing...and it was effective because people WERE listening.  Not a big fan of SWA or AA.

As opposed to inefficient boarding techniques that every other airline uses? Get on, find a seat, done...if you're one of the people who go all the way to the back to find a window or aisle seat that's your own fault and you are making it worse for everyone else.

The fact when she mentioned "web cams" and only a few on the flight reacted with a giggle upset me.  I guess we are so comfortable with invasion of privacy while flying that no one thought it possible a joke.

/the rapper guy still has the best shtick.

Mmhmm. I'd pay extra for FedEx to ship me intercontinental in a box large enough to lay down in. Give me a bottle of nyquil and about 4psi hold pressure and i'll see you when i wake up in Japan.

toetag: The fact when she mentioned "web cams" and only a few on the flight reacted with a giggle upset me.


I heard that one on a SW flight a few weeks ago (I was definitely not on the FTV flight) and it got a chuckle out of me and a few others.  I remember being a bit surprised that there wasn't more reaction to it at the time, and while there was humor in that presentation, it wasn't the full-on standup routine as in this video.  Perhaps the webcam bit is a little too subtle for most, gotta process it a little longer, but by then there's something else to pay (in)attention to.

I flew a few months ago for the first time in almost 20 years and I'll never do it again.  I'd rather farking walk the next time I go out of town.

What happened to boats?  Did they all sink?  Did we fall back into the 80's when going to Hawaii was still a thing to be done?

Please, by all means, don't go to Hawaii.  Especially avoid Kauai, it's a hell hole.

Thankfully I got the All expense paid trip to Hawaii thanks to the US Navy.... spent just over 2 years there and I must say that if it had not been for the Navy I would have never been able to afford it.. my dad is still jealous that I went there and didn't even appreciate it, while he has always wanted to go.. myself, I never even wanted to go to Hawaii I wanted to go somewhere in the Atlantic side..

although I DID manage to visit Jamaica and Cuba, swam in the crystal clear waters near some island I cant think of at the moment, but it was near the triangle.. and speaking of the triangle, the only thing that really caused me to get a bit paranoid was the fact that as SOON as we entered it the waves went smooth.. it was like glass.. even the ripple of the bow wave disappeared in a matter of seconds.. very trippy.. wish I had a camcorder of that...

The biggest scam Southwest pulls is by forcing everyone to use their website to check their fares, and not letting people use Kayak or Orbitz or Hipmunk, etc.  SWA fares are actually higher than the other airlines quite regularly, and have been since their fuel hedges ended, but people don't know that because they only book on the SWA site and have no comparison.

^Mostly BS^

SW does that to keep control of their bookings - other airlines sell off blocks of seats wayyyyy ahead of time to discount resellers.  That adds to uncertainty to both the airline and the pax as to whether or not a flight is going full/empty, paid for or not, subject to unexpected overbooking. Really, SW has a much better handle on all that.

I've flown SW and AA too much for my comfort in the last 60 months.  The fares work something like this:

0. how long before travel time you book
1. route, how competitive the route is.
2. how long before travel time you book
3. whether or not you choose a refundable/changable ticket
4. how long before travel time you book
5. whether or not you pay for extras (Early Bird boarding, in the case of SW)
6. how long before travel time you book

Except for the people who check Orbitz and those other sites and compare them to SWA, and you know what? In the last 2-3 years, Southwest has usually been the cheapest. Sometimes I'm willing to pay a little extra to avoid a layover, but Southwest is always a viable option if you're flying domestic.

And to the whiny farks who don't like how they do boarding, learn to check in. I do it from my phone 24 hours before my flight and always have my choice of seats.
