Still Onboard?

C'mon - put some hustle on; the rest of us want of just as badly

Captains and FAs asides:

Weather at our destination is 50 degrees is 50 degrees with some broken clouds but they'll try to have them fixed before we arrive .  Thank you and remember nobody loves you or your money more that Southwest Airlines.

To operate your seatbelt insert the metal tab into the buckle and pull tight. It works just like every other seatbelt and if you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised.

In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will drop down from the ceiling.  Stop screaming, grab the mask and pull it over your face.  

If you have a small child traveling  with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs.  If you are traveling with two small children decide now which one you love more.

AA into Amarillo on a very windy, bumpy day.  On final the captain was really fighting it to an extremely

hard landing.  The FA came on the PA and announced, "Welcome to Amarillo.  Please remain in your seats while the Captain taxies what's left of our airplane to the Gate."  Another flight, bumpy landing, another FA  same airline.  "Please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the gate."

After a real crusher of a landing an FA came on, saying "Ladies and Gentlemen, Please remain seated until Captain Crash and the Crew have brought  the aircraft to a screeching halt right up against the gate.  And once the tire smoke  has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal 

A pilot added this - that he'd hammered into the runway really hard.  Adding that he did follow Airline rules - to stand at the door as the pax deplaned and to be  courteous in the face of any less than friendly complaints.  He dreaded it.  The last passenger, a little old lady, walking with a cane, asked the pilot, "Sonny do you mind if I asked you a question?"   "Why. no, Ma'am, said the pilot "What is it?"    The old lady asked sweetly, ""Did we land or were we shot down?"
