AND FINALLY: Humour on high

In an avalanche of publicity for which most airlines would pay a fortune, video of a Southwest Airlines safety announcement by cabin attendant Marty Cobb has gone viral on the internet.

The announcement (example: “If you’re flying with small children – (pause) – we’re sorry”), is one of several that have appeared and won praise from passengers for making an often-boring but necessary part of a flight entertaining. See for yourself.

Seems Southwest goes in for this sort of thing - I've always liked this one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-__qxe7upN4

Very good. Much nearer home the new British Airways safety video is very entertaining too. Various well-known faces (Sir Ian McKellen, Gillian Anderson, Thandie Newton, Jim Broadbent, etc) taking part.
