Holy Sombrero

Maybe it's the Pope's birthday
that's the only time I get to wear a sombrero

Kulula Airlines

Kulula Airlines. Coolest airline.....ever.
I want to fly to South Africa now.

Some of their in-flight announcements...

  • "Please pay attention to the safety announcement, because you will be writing a test shortly" 
  • "If you are caught smoking, you will be asked to leave the aircraft" 
  • "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." 
  • "To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull the belt tight. It works just like every other seat belt; and, if you don't know how to operate one by now, then you probably shouldn't be allowed out in public unsupervised." 
  • "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." 
  • "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 Kulula Airways." 

Funny plane paint humor...

They got into a bit of trouble by FIFA for this ad. Read more about it HERE
