Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!" 
Heard on Southwest Airlines just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake
City: The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was
quite a bump, and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it
wasn't   the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the

Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo, Texas, on a 
particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the

Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement:  "We'd like to thank
you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the  insane

A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a 
comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over
the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome
to Flight Number 293, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather
ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight.
Now sit back and relax... OH, MY GOD!"  Silence followed, and after a few
