PAL beats them all!

Got this in an email. Have a happy Monday!!!

Airline Cabin Announcements: All too rarely, 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:

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES
On a Continental 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.'

JAPAN AIR LINES
'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 favorite.'

BRITISH AIRWAYS
'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.'

AMERICAN AIRLINES
Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo , Texas , 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
Amarillo Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened
while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!'

QANTAS AIRWAYS
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.'

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

PHILIPPINE AIR LINES
We're now preparing to land at San Francisco International Airport .
Kindly straighten up your seats, turn off all electronic gadgets,
pull up your window shades and buckle up for safety. We hope you
enjoyed flying with us as much as we did.
Sa wikang atin po, tayo po ay papalapag na sa paliparang
pangkalawakang internasyonal ng San Francisco . Paalala po lamang sa
ating mga kababayan -- ang mga unan, kumot, headset at iba pang
kagamitan sa eroplano ay di po kasama sa pasalubong. Huwag po lamang
baklasin ang LCD-TV na nakadikit sa silya.
