On Monday flight Belgrade-Milan, Jat Airways cabin crew decided to entertain the passengers by giving out not so common pre-flight safety instructions.
The passengers were at first surprised when a flight attendant started to make a following announcement: “In case of losing cabin pressure, our fantastically designed golden masks will magically appear above you.”
While the passengers looked at her with amused looks, she continued: “First of all, stop screaming. Then apply the mask on yourself first, and then on children, and then on all those behaving as children.”
The instructions did not end there. Next one related to emergency water landing and said: “We know you are well-dressed, but in the case of an emergency landing, please wear our latest security vest from the spring/summer 2013 collection.”
After the last instruction: “In the case you are not satisfied with our service, you can leave the plane using side exits which are clearly marked. To all those who listened to these instructions carefully, we wish you a pleasant flight. To all others, we wish you all the luck,” the passengers broke into applause.
Passenger Srdjan K. says that in the beginning the passengers were caught by surprise, but quickly got the joke.
It remains unknown if this was an independent gesture made by the cabin crew on flight Belgrade-Milan, or a marketing gimmick which should help Jat regain its former popularity with the passengers. In any case, it worked.
