My Kind of Pilot Pre-Departure Announcement

Occasionally I enjoy the story-teller pilots, usually I like a quiet flight.

Departing on a pre-dawn Royal Air Maroc flight the captain intoned in a deep, confident voice, “Welcome on board. Captain speaking. Take off right now. Crew take your seat.”

If only I could have that at LaGuardian, “Take off right now!”

Note the Royal Air Maroc is otherwise not so quiet, the blaring music and overload safety videos made sure no one was asleep.

  • It made me think of our flight to Jamaica on Southwest. When we landed, the pilot laconically told the passengers: “We are here. Get out.”

    Have you ever taken one of their 787s before? How are the business class seats on their 787s?

    @Pablo – only short flights on unremarkable planes.
