    She was funny. I wonder how many times they have done that act.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    If it's a NYC flight, I imagine at some point some plane is going to have troubles, in which someone fails to remember what the heck to do with the plastic, yellow "bikini" and air mask. Liability and all. That said ...


    She was a hoot! Much more entertaining and information-packed than most of the intro's I've heard.

    You can not pay me enough to fly SWA. When I fly I want to be left alone. I don't need the jocularity. If I wanted to travel like that I would take a Greyhound bus.

    Love it!


    I was coming back from Kansas City on Southwest and when we got into BWI the flight attendant came on and said "be careful when you open the overhead bins as items tend to shift in flight and we all know that shift happens".

    There are 3 things I avoid in life.

    1. Shopping at Walmart
    2. Humana healthcare plans
    3. Flying Southwest Air

    That is one funny pre-flight briefing. A friend of mine used to be a Loadmaster on C-141s, his briefing consisted of “If we have an emergency, follow me”.

    When I fly I park my car, unlock the plane, toss my guns into the back seat, kick the tires and take off.

    They're all cattle-haul rigs anyway, these days. Leave-me-be service at a respectfully high level hasn't widely existed since the early 1970's or so. I figure if the initial jocularity during the must-have safety briefing can help folks through it as simply as possible, I'm all for it. Silly as it is, potentially disastrous though it might be (if folks blow off the safety appreciation, which most do anyway). Better this than some tiresome automaton, I'd say.

    But, that's why we've got choices. Can always pick up a used Gulfstream IV and go it alone.

    If it's all the same to you I'd rather fly with you.
