You know the scene. You’re boarding the plane, trying to find a good seat while avoiding that lady who’s lifting a suitcase bigger than her into the overhead compartment. Once you’ve settled into your fixed position for the next couple hours, the safety briefing becomes the background music as you start flipping through the copy of US Weekly you scored at Hudson News. However, you may put that magazine down if you're on a Southwest Airlines flight.
Dave the Rapping Flight Attendant has taken over the forward cabin with his preflight announcement. Learning how to buckle seatbelts and pay for booze on board has never been so fun—if you want another kinda drink just holla, alcoholic beverages will be four dollars. He’s sick and tired of the same boring announcement, so he started doing his best to entertain the passengers—and himself—all in the name of safety.
We’re confident that Southwest is eating this publicity up, especially as it hits the major news outlets like CNN. Now Deltalina has a little competition, and we might just have to add a Jaunty category for best in-flight performance.
We've been on our share of Southwest flights where other flight attendants have tested out stand up material or tried a new song and dance routine. Even the most hardened traveler usually cracks a smile, either because it's funny or because it's just so awful.
