“In the case of a water landing between Kansas City and Las Vegas you can use your seat cushion as a floatation device. Clasp the cushion to your chest, put your arms through the straps and jump out into the dirt.”
This was the start of my Southwest flight to Vegas this morning and the flight attendants were funny the whole way. The captain also gave us updates every 15 minutes or so on speed, altitude, landmarks and so on. Little things, but it really made a difference in my mind about the flight. It was almost… bearable.
