WHAT A PITY KULULA DOESN’T FLY  INTERNATIONALLY – WE SHOULD SUPPORT THEM IF ONLY FOR THEIR HUMOUR – SO  TYPICALLY SOUTH AFRICAN.

Kulula is an Airline with head office  situated in Johannesburg.  Kulula 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:

—o0o—

On a Kulula 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!”

—o0o—

On another 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.”

—-o0o—

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.”

—-o0o—

“There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out  of this airplane.”

—o0o—

“Thank you for flying Kulula. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business  as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.”

—o0o—

As the plane landed and was coming to a stop atDurban Airport, a lone voice  came over the loudspeaker: “Whoa, big fella. WHOA!”

—o0o–

After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in the Karoo, a flight attendant on a flight announced, “Please  take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing  like that, sure as hell everything has shifted.”

—o0o—

From a Kulula employee: ” Welcome aboard Kulula 271 to Port Elizabeth. 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.”

—o0o—

“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.”

—o0o—

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 Kulula Airlines.”

—-o0o—

“Your seats 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.”

—o0o—

“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.”

—o0o—

And from the pilot during his welcome message: “Kulula 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!”

—o0o—

Heard on Kulula 255 just after a very hard landingin Cape  Town: 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.”

—o0o—

Overheard on a Kulula flight into Cape    Town , on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During  the final approach, the Captain really had to fight it. After an extremely  hard landing, the Flight Attendant said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome  to The Mother City. Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened  while the Captain taxis what’s left of our airplane to the gate!”

—o0o—

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.”

—o0o—

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?”

—o0o—

After a real crusher of a landing in Johannesburg  , 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.”

—o0o—

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 Kulula Airways.”

—o0o—

Heard on a Kulula 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.”
