From The Air

As I approached Providence on Thursday, the Captain came on the PA to thank us for using United thus:

"We know that in today's market, you have a wide selection of bankrupt and failing airlines to choose from. We'd like to thank you for flying United, because frankly, we could use the money."

That is Awesome! Now I want to fly United just for the HOPE that I MIGHT have that captain.

Pilots in general try to be witty. I mean, you can only repeat the same exact line so many times before you get bored with it and need to improvise.

Besides, most of a plane ride is fairly boring for a pilot. (Ideally, at least.) They might as well come up with clever things to say on the way down.
