United Express flight from Memphis (MEM) to Newark (EWR)
Flight Attendant: This will be a miserable flight. It’ll be really turbulent and then we’ll end up in New Jersey.


American Airlines flight from Los Cabos (SJD) to Dallas (DFW)
Flight Attendant:  Sorry for the delay, ladies and gentlemen. The first two planes we tried didn’t work, so this is the third one and we made it here okay…so, so far, so good!


Delta flight from Los Angeles (LAX) to Honolulu (HNL)
Flight Attendant (bumping into a passenger with the beverage cart): Whoops, sorry! Woman driver!


WestJet flight from Montreal (YUL) to LaGuardia (LGA)
Flight Attendant: So I’m gonna let the lady in the box take it away in French for the safety debrief, then I’ll finish up in English, because we like to save the best for last!
Entire Plane: Oooooooooooooh!
Passenger in the Back (in French): We’re still in Quebec, you know!


Southwest flight from Denver (DEN) to Albuquerque (ABQ)
Flight Attendant: Chances are they’re all middle seats. Find the one with the most attractive people, and take it.

JetBlue flight from Orlando (MCO) to JFK
Flight Attendant: As we prepare to disembark, please check to make sure you have not abandoned any bags, personal items or children. All abandoned items will be divided up among the flight attendants, except the children, who will be given to the captain.


Southwest flight from Houston Hobby (HOU) to New Orleans (MSY)
Flight Attendant: Wave hi to my ex-husband and his new wife as they pass by.

Another great, entertaining post! Thanks for the line breaks — it displays much better on my phone this way.
