After a grim week of blogging about Ottawa cops, conservative fatwas and twisted lefty knickers (can’t wait to see what Google hits we get from THAT), it might be salutary to remember that the world isn’t completely bleak.
Consider Kulala Airways, for instance; a cheeky South African regional carrier with a sense of humour. Their recently repainted fleet of 737s provide exterior labels for the various parts of the planes’ interior (e.g. “Loo, or Mile High Initiation Chamber”.) The same style is reflected in their advertising and their in-flight announcements. A couple of my favourites:
“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.”
“Welcome to Johannesburg. If Johannesburg is not where you were intending to go then you have a bit of a problem.”
“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 travelling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are travelling with more than one small child, pick your favourite.”
