Most of us ignore the flight attendant’s safety speech if we fly a lot.
What can we say, it’s hard to concentrate when a flight attendant is monotone and repeats the instructions the same way every flight. And in the case of a water landing, we don’t have a lot of confidence in those little life vests.
But by zoning out, we really do miss some potentially vital information! So, how do flight attendants battle this situation?
One flight attendant decided to create his own safety instructions that had the entire plane laughing hysterically!
A flight attendant for Frontier Airlines has his own stand-up routine to make the safety warning memorable.
He even gets his fellow flight attendants to laugh! No better way to enjoy work than with humor, right?
For passengers, flights can be hectic and boring, but not on this plane!
The flight attendant starts his safety guidelines about the possibility of having to leave the airplane mid-flight. While this does not seem to be a big concern on most flights, he wanted to make sure to cover all his bases by telling the passengers:
“If you do decide to leave, you will not be allowed access back on board and parachutes are not included.”
Well, that seems reasonable. Once you bail, you bail!
Starting from the very beginning of his speech, these passengers must have known this was not going to be an ordinary, boring flight. And it was probably even helpful in easing any frazzled nerves passengers might have had. Many do hate flying after all.
But laughter is the best medicine!
When it was time to explain to everyone how to use the life vests during an emergency, he was not going to give the same boring lecture. He called the life vests,
“…itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini. Minus the itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny – and you get no polka dots.”
To be fair, it’s also not a bikini, but we’ll let that slide.
This is when another flight attendant that is showing the life vest instructions finally starts cracking up!
She cannot help but laugh right along with the passengers. You have to wonder if they had ever flown together or if it was her first time hearing his instructions as well. We would not blame her if she had and just laughs every time.
Every flight lets their passengers know the two ways to inflate their vest – the pull tab or the red tube to blow it up yourself.
I don’t know about you, but I have always wondered who would ever choose to blow it themselves in such an emergency?
This flight attendant felt the same way by stating:
“…for those of you who love to make life difficult you can blow on that red tube near your shoulder…”
Frontier Airlines, or maybe just this flight attendant, understands that honesty is always the best policy.
Hopefully, they realized he was joking in certain cases such as using your neighbor as a floatation device or choosing to put the oxygen mask on your favorite child first!
Flying is a very serious matter and can be very scary, especially when you’re bringing up what needs to happen during emergencies. So, creating some humor to lighten the mood and keep people paying attention is a great tactic by this flight attendant.
Job well done!
Like the flight attendant states at the end:
“…and for those of you who didn’t give us your full attention, good luck.”
