Flying... er.. comfortably?

First of all, I'd like to apologize to Indians -- or Indian sympathizers -- everywhere who happen to stumble upon my blog and read this particular entry. I got this from a friend and it's so hilarious that I can't resist the temptation to post it here, in addition to sending it to my closest buddies. Well, perhaps to make you feel better, this is applicable to Indonesian flag carriers to, hehehe... you could change the subject's name to Garuda Indonesia or Lion Air or whatever you like... Peace!

So.. here it goes.

"Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is your captain PATEL (Boniface) welcoming both seated and standing passengers on board of Air India.

We apologize for the four-day delay in taking off, it was due to bad weather and some overtime I had to put in at the bakery.


This is flight 717 to Mumbai. Landing there is not guaranteed, but we will end up somewhere in India. And, if luck is in our favor, we may even be landing on your village!

Air India has an excellent safety-record.. In fact, our safety standards are so high, that even terrorists are afraid to fly with us! It is with pleasure; I announce that, starting this year, over 30% of our passengers have reached their destination. If our engines are too noisy for you, on passenger request, we can arrange to turn them off!

To make your free fall to earth pleasant and memorable, we serve complimentary DHARU and Wada pavw. For our not-so-religious passengers, we are the only airline who can help you find out if there really is a God!

We regret to inform you, that today's in-flight movie will not be shown as we forgot to record it from the television. However, for our movie buffs, we will be flying right next to Emirates Airline, where their movie will be visible from the right side of the cabin window.There is no smoking allowed in this airplane. Any smoke you see in the cabin is only the early warning system on the engines telling us to slow down!

In order to catch important landmarks, we try to fly as close as possible for the best view. If however, we go a little too close, do let us know. Our enthusiastic co-pilot sometimes flies right through the landmark!

Kindly be seated, keep your seat in an upright position for take-off and fasten your seat-belt. For those of you who can't find a seat-belt, kindly fasten your own belt to the arm of your seat. And, for those of you who can't find a seat, do not hesitate to get in touch with a stewardess who will explain how to fasten yourself to your suitcase."

"Thanking you all for choosing Air-India to fly for the first and last time."

But I guess this should apply to some Indonesian carrier, eh ? You know, less safety due to less maintenance budget thingy !

silverlines: my pleasure, dear! I got it from another friend too, remember? :D

apey: be'e penumpange wis biasa, jangan2 sudah ada yg siap pake parasut di balik bajunya, hhahaha...

komentator nyasar: aslinya emang Mumbay, nama Bombay diberikan oleh pemerintah kolonial (Inggris). Beberapa waktu lalu mereka pengen balikin ke nama sebenarnya. Sama seperti soal nama Myanmar (asli) dan Burma (dari Inggris) -- tapi yg ini sih masalah politik, soal suku mana yg lebih dominan.
