    WestJet is an Airline with head office situated in Calgary, Alberta.
    WestJet 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:

    On a WestJet 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!"

    On another West Jet 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."

    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."

    "There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out
    Of this airplane."

    "Thank you for flying West Jet Express. We hope you enjoyed giving us
    The Business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride."

    As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at the Vancouver Airport, a
    Lone voice came over the loudspeaker: "Whoa, big fella. WHOA!"

    After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Ontario, a
    Flight Attendant on a West Jet flight announced, "Please take care when opening
    The Overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as hell
    Everything has shifted."

    From a West Jet Airlines employee: "Welcome aboard West Jet Flight 245
    To Calgary. 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

    "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."

    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 West Jet Airlines."

    "Your seat 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." "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."

    And from the pilot during his welcome message: "West Jet 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!"

    Heard on West Jet Airlines just after a very hard landing in Edmonton:
    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.

    Overheard on an West Jet Airlines flight into Regina, 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 Regina. Please remain in your
    Seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our
    Airplane to the gate!"

    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

    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

    After a real crusher of a landing in Halifax, the attendant came onWith,
    "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."

    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 West Jet Airways."

    Heard on a West Jet Airline 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."

    A plane was taking off from the Winnipeg Airport. After it reached a
    comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the
    intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome
    To Flight Number 293, nonstop from Winnipeg to Montreal, The weather ahead
    Is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now
    sit back and relax... OH, MY GOD!" Silence followed, and after a few
    minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and
    Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to
    you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my
    lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger in Coach yelled,
    "That's nothing. You should see the back of mine!"
