Whoa, big fella. WHOA!

by John M. White |

You are sitting in your seat on the airplane, and as the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Durban Airport , a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: "Whoa, big fella. WHOA!" You have just arrived at the Durban Airport in South Africa, flying on one of Kulula Airlines aircraft, and as usual, have experienced the efforts of the crew to make your flight more entertaining. But, the effort does not stop just there. No, the airline makes a serious effort for everyone to enjoy their trip and make them feel more comfortable with riding on an airplane. For example, on one 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!" In fact, to make things even more interesting the airline apparently got tired of explaining the different parts of the airplane to passengers, so came up with a course called "Flying 101". Flying 101 Now passengers could simply look at the airplane and all of their questions were answered! While I am not crazy about the color of the aircraft, I certainly can enjoy the lettering all over the aircraft. And, once again, the humor is carried forward, all of which is intended to get passengers to relax. Here is another quote worthy of mention: "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." If you ever get to South Africa, be sure and take a flight on this airline - I guarantee its worth the price! Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch! JetAviator7 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." ps: Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter "All Things Aviation" here!
