In Flight Funnies.
Whether you’re flying first class, business class, or coach, having a competent and attentive flight attendant can make or break your airline experience. When you are a mile high, you want to feel like everything is under control and that you are in good hands.
In addition to a great flight attendant being someone who is calm under pressure, quick on their feet, polite, and has excellent customer service, we have one more quality to add:
If you haven’t seen it already, check out this video of a Southwest Airlines flight attendant giving her version of the safety checklist:
Although it’s a little silly, it manages to hold everyone’s attention.

Not only does this make the passengers giggle, but it can diffuse any tensions or nerves of passengers before liftoff.
To the Southwest Airlines flight attendant who has a promising career in standup comedy: we applaud you!
