...ah, ladies and gentlemen this is your captain. As we are in arrears on our rental agreement at the main terminal and have been summarily evicted, we will be deplaning in the grass at the end of the runway today. Please check to make sure you are wearing your most comfortable footwear before leaving the aircraft as it is a long walk to the terminal. For those passengers whom Helsinki is the final destination, you may claim your luggage on the side of the road outside the west perimeter fence in about an hour. For those of you connecting on to other SAS flights, please check with a passenger service representative as to which end of the field you to need to proceed to. If you are connecting to another carrier that is solvent enough to afford a gate at the main terminal, you are on your own.
For your personal safety, you are required to look both ways before crossing any taxiway, active runway or tarmac area. SAS will not, and cannot afford to, be held liable for any injury that may occur from incidents involving other aircraft that may be encountered on the field.
On behalf of the flight and cabin crew, we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for choosing SAS, We look forward to serving you again provided we aren’t liquidated or bought out by another airline.
...one of my favourite films is the original Airplane!.
Really? It’s taken from that? I loved it too, but that was a very long time ago for me (also when I was burning brain cell’s daily). I first saw it at a Drive In.
...more “inspired by”.
Spent a lot of time flying in the days before everything turned to “cattle class”. Still remember smoking on planes, Still remember getting served full meals in tourist (hence the ‘T” designation in old the prop days) on “real” plates with “real” flatware and beverages served in “real” glasses (coffee in “real” cups). Nowadays, you’re lucky if you get a bag of peanuts and a can of Coke. Even First class has lost it’s luster (at least on domestic services in the US). Instead of quality it’s the bottom line that drives things.
Technologically, air travel has come a long way but from this longtime passenger’s viewpoint, it has taken a huge leap backwards.
I know its stupid but I want too wish everyone a Happy Halloween and hope you get to see my new animation I’ve been posted promos all over town because i got this film done so late.
I hope you enjoy it.
