Funny United Airlines slogans – UA mottos get brutal

Funny United Airlines slogans - UA mottos get brutal

After the 4/10/2017 video footage of a passenger being roughed up after refusing to give up his seat to airline employees, United Airlines is suffering a brutal takedown of its own.  Their motto, “Fly the Friendly Skies” seems to have lost its meaning.  Instead, here are some funny new mottos we believe the beleaguered airline should now consider.

  • Not enough seating? Prepare for a beating!
  • United Airlines: Now serving Punch!
  • Just imagine how we treat your luggage.
  • Hey, we said the “skies” were friendly…
  • Early boarding, late boarding, water boarding – all the same to us.
  • Board as a doctor, leave as a patient.
  • Please keep feet out of the aisle – we need dragging room.
  • You carry on, we carry off.
  • We can re-accommodate you the easy way… or the hard way.
  • United Airlines: Now offering the Mike Tyson experience.
  • She’s got a ticket to ride – and we don’t care.
  • New boarding policy: “Eeny, meeny, miney, mo…”
  • Would you like a window seat… or a concussion?
  • No only can our United family not wear leggings, but tickets must be paid for with the blood of an innocent.
  • If you weren’t afraid of flying before, you will be now!
  • We put the hospital in hospitality.
  • We treat you like we treat your luggage.
  • We’ll beat any price – and any customer.
  • If we overbook, you’ll catch a right hook.

And for the competing airlines…

  • Southwest – we beat the competition, not you.
  • We’re here to keep you safe.  Dragging is strictly prohibited.

Kulula – the funny airlines with a (sometimes dark) sense of humor

Kulula  is a low-cost South-African airline that doesn’t take itself  too seriously. Below we have a collection of funny flight-attendant and pilot announcements along with some hilarious pictures of Kulula’s beautiful airplanes.

Kulula  is an Airline with head office situated in Johannesburg .  Kulula 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 Kulula 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 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 Kulula. 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 Durban Airport, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker:
“Whoa, big  fella. WHOA!”

After  a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in the  Karoo , a flight attendant on a flight  announced,
“Please  take care when opening the overhead compartments because,  after a landing like that, sure as hell everything has  shifted.”

From  a Kulula employee:
“Welcome aboard Kulula 271 to Port  Elizabeth . 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  unsupervised.”

“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 travelling  with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If  you are travelling 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 Kulula Airlines.”

“Your  seats 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:
“Kulula  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 Kulula 255 just after a very hard landing in Cape Town :  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 a Kulula flight into Cape Town , on a particularly windy  and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain really  had to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight  Attendant said,
“Ladies  and Gentlemen, welcome to The Mother City. 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 terminal.”

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 down?”

After  a real crusher of a landing in Johannesburg , the attendant  came on with,
“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  Kulula Airways.”

Heard  on a Kulula 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.”

The showoff F-16 pilot

A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by. The jet jockey decided to show off. The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, “Watch this!”, and promptly went into a barrel-roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier.

The F-16 pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?

The C-130 pilot said, “That was impressive, but watch this!”

The C-130 droned along for about five minutes, and then the C-130 pilot came back on and said, “What did you think of that?”

Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, “What the heck did you do?”

The C-130 pilot chuckled. “I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, visited the restroom, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll.”

Funny things said on a plane

The following are collection of (supposedly) true announcements made on some of the more humorous national airlines.

Attention ladies and gentlemen, we have reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights.  This is for your personal comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants.

As the plane landed and was coming to a particularly hard stop on the runway , a calm, but authoritative voice came over the loudspeaker commanding: “Whoa, big fella. WHOA!”

After a particularly rough landing at the airport, the flight attendant announced, “Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, we can be pretty damn sure everything has shifted.”

Weather at our destination is balmy 50 degrees with some broken clouds – but we’ll try to have them fixed before we arrive at the gate. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Grand Dragon Airlines.

Remember, your seat cushions can be used as a flotation device.  In the event of an emergency landing, you may use the seat cushions to paddle safely to shore and by all means,  take them with our compliments.

A flight attendant’s announcement after a less than perfect landing: “We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal.”

After a particularly rough landing, the attendant announced, “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..”

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 Grand Dragon Airways.

Make sure you know your pilot before you take off

The photographer for a national magazine was assigned to get photos of a great forest fire.  Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane. “It will be waiting for you at the airport!” he was assured by his editor.

As soon as he got to the small, rural airport, sure enough, a plane was warming up near the runway.  He jumped in with his equipment and yelled, “Let’s go!   Let’s go!”  The pilot swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air.

“Fly over the north side of the fire,” said the photographer, “and make three or four low level passes.”

“Why?” asked the pilot.

“Because I’m going to take pictures!   I’m a photographer, and photographers take pictures!” said the photographer with great exasperation and impatience.

After a long pause the pilot said, “You mean you’re not the instructor?”

True Aviation Rules to Live By

The following are rules every aviator lives by:

  1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.
  2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back, then they get bigger again.
  3. Flying isn’t dangerous. Crashing is what’s dangerous.
  4. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you’re on fire.
  5. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.
  6. A ‘good’ landing is one from which you can walk away. A ‘great’ landing is one after which they can use the plane again.
  7. You know you’ve landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.
  8. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about might be another airplane going in the oppo- site direction. Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in clouds.
  9. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of take offs you’ve made.
  10. In the ongoing battle between objects made of alumi- num going hundreds of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose.
  11. It’s always a good idea to keep the pointy end going forward as much as possible.
  12. Helicopters can’t fly; they’re just so ugly the earth repels them.

Sorry, this plane will lift all this hunting gear

Two moose hunters from Texas are flown into a remote lake in Alaska. They have a good hunt and both manage to get a large moose. When the plane returns to pick them up, the pilot looks at the animals and says, “This little plane won’t lift all of us, the equipment, and both of those animals. You’ll have to leave one. We’d never make it over the trees on the take off.”

“That’s baloney!” says one of the hunters.

“Yeah,” the other agrees, “you’re just chicken. We came out here last year and got two moose and that pilot had some guts! He wasn’t afraid to take off!”

“Yeah”, said the first hunter, “and his plane wasn’t any bigger than yours!”

The pilot got angry, and said, “Hell, if he did it, then I can do it! I can fly as well as anybody!”

They loaded up, taxied at full throttle, and the plane almost made it, but didn’t have the lift to clear the trees at the end of the lake. It clipped the tops, then flipped, then broke up,scattering the baggage, animal carcasses, and passengers all through the brush. Still alive, but hurt and dazed, the pilot sat up, shook his head to clear it, and said, “Where are we?”

One of the hunters rolled out from being thrown into a bush, looked around and said, “I’d say… About a hundred yards further than last year.”
