Flight Attendant David Holmes makes flying fun! Southwest Airlines flight attendant David Holmes has become something of a minor Internet hit after passengers posted cellphone videos of his hip-hop inspired takes on the standard cabin announcements.
In May 2010 the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released the final report for the accident “US Airways Flight 1549 – The Hudson River Emergency Landing”. The report included 44 findings. The 44th and last finding was: “Most of the passengers did not pay attention to the oral preflight safety briefing or read the safety information card before the accident flight, indicating that more creative and effective methods of conveying safety information to passengers are needed because of the risks associated with passengers not being aware of safety equipment.”
David Holmes, a flight attendant with Southwest Airlines, translated the safety instructions into a rap form. He’s turning the usual dry announcements into the highlight of the trip. “That’s the first time I ever listened to the emergency instructions”, said a passenger.
If you are like me, flying is not the best part of taking a vacation=) Humor is the best vacation you can ever take!
