How to Become a Flight Attendant- Have a Sense of Humor!

Miss Julie shows you that having a sense of humor can help you learn how to become a flight attendant.

If you’ve ever flown on an airplane, you have seen and heard a safety demonstration. This important ritual is performed prior to take-off on all aircrafts to familiarize passengers with safety equipment and evacuation procedures in the event of an emergency. In the past, the safety demo was always performed by flight attendants. While this is still true today, many large airlines now have pre-recorded safety demos that are shown on the aircraft’s video system. Flight attendants are in the aisles to point out exits, but the rest is shown on the screen.

The problem has always been to get passengers to listen and watch. Frequent fliers have heard it a million times, therefore,  rarely look up from their laptop. The average passenger also tends to tune it out and pay no attention. As a former flight attendant, I can also say that it gets very repetitious and the delivery can become pretty stale. To combat this boredom, many airlines have re-done the traditional safety demo and added humor to both the spoken and video versions. Passengers have responded to this, resulting in more people paying attention, which could ultimately save their lives.

To conclude, here are some of my favorite unique and funny safety demonstrations.
