this is funny~

> You gotta love the Canadian sense of humor.


> West Jet is an Airline with head offices situated in Calgary , Alberta
> West Jet airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety
lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real
examples that have been heard or reported:



> On a West Jet flight (There is no assigned seating, you just sit where you
want) passengers were apparently having a hard time choosing, when a flight
attendant announced, 'People, people we're not picking out furniture here,
find a seat and get in it!'
> -----------------------
> On another West Jet Flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the
pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will
be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance
the appearance of your flight attendants."
> ------------------------
> On landing, the stewardess said, ' Please be sure to take all of your
belongings. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's
something we'd like to have.'
> ------------------------
> 'There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane.'

> ---------------------------
> 'Thank you for flying West Jet Express. We hope you enjoyed giving us the
business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.'
> ---------------------------
> As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at the Vancouver Airport , a
lone voice came over the loudspeaker: 'Whoa, big fella.. WHOA!'
> -------------------------
> After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Ontario , a flight
attendant on a West Jet flight announced, ' Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as hell everything has shifted.'
> -----------------------
> From a West Jet Airlines employee: 'Welcome aboard West Jet Flight 245 to Calgary . To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle,
and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt; 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, masks will descend 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 more than one small child, pick your
favourite.'
> -----------------------
> 'Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but we'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than West Jet Airlines.'
> ------------------------
> 'Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and in the event of an
emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our
compliments.'
> -----------------------
> 'As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything
left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please
do not leave children or spouses.'
> ---------------------------
> And from the pilot during his welcome message: ' West Jet Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight attendants in the
industry.. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!'
> -----------------------------
> Heard on West Jet Airlines just after a very hard landing in Edmonton : 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 flight attendant's fault,
it was the asphalt..'
> ------------------------------
> Overheard on a West Jet Airlines flight into Regina , on a particularly
windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain was really
having to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant
said, 'Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Regina .

Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the
Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!'
> ------------------------------
> Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: 'We ask
you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal.'
> ---------------------
> An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his
ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required
the first officer to stand at the door while the Passengers exited, smile,
and give them a 'Thanks for flying our airline.' He said that, in light of
his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye,
thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had
gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane. She said, 'Sir,
do you mind if I ask you a question?'
'Why, no, Ma'am,' said the pilot. 'What is it?'
The little old lady said, 'Did we land, or were we shot down?'
> -------------------
> After a real crusher of a landing in Halifax , the attendant came on with,
'Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Captain Crash and
the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the gate.
And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we
will open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the
terminal.'
> -----------------------
> 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 urge
to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll
think of West Jet Airways.'
> -----------------------
> Heard on a West Jet Airline flight, 'Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to
smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing. If you can light
'em, you can smoke 'em.'
> -----------------------
> A plane was taking off from the Winnipeg 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 Winnipeg to Montreal . 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 minutes, the captain came back on the
intercom and said, 'Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you.

While I was talking to you, the flight attendant accidentally
spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my
pants!' A passenger in Coach yelled, 'That's nothing. You should see the
back of mine!

Actually, that sounds like any English speaking peoples sense of humor. (because its written in English) I see no difference from this to American humor. Canadians speak English too ya know. So does England and Australia, many other countries. I don't see the connection with Canada in this at all.

Just an observation..

oh gyspy, i enjoyed it, i may be wrong because i dont know all the airlines in detail, but possibly the tie in with canada is it was western airlines, and without checking i would think that might be a canadian airline, so there is the connection, but i have not checked western airlines, anyway does not matter the article was funny to me, if it was a big deal i would have googled western airlines to see if its a Canadian airline.

Western Airlines was a large airline based in California, with operations throughout the Western United States, and hubs at Los Angeles International Airport, Salt Lake City International Airport, and the former Stapleton International Airport in Denver. Before it merged with Delta Air Lines it was headquartered by Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles.

However, WestJet Airlines is a Canadian low-cost carrier based in Calgary, Alberta that flies within Canada and to the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. WestJet is the second largest Canadian carrier behind Air Canada. WestJet is a rarity in the airline industry in that it is non-unionized; Profit-sharing is credited for this fact. WestJet plans to be one of the world's top five most profitable international airlines by 2016.

WestJet is a public company with over 7,500 employees and 1.2 billion USD market capitalization.

So I guess that was the connection, its not Western Airlines, its "WestJet".
