Fly Blue Crane (SA) - amusing website content

This airline, based in South Africa, went into receivership at the beginning of 2017 but their website is still up and offers an amusing diversion for some.

if you go to Fly Blue Crane - A fresh approach and scroll down to the "The Dos and Don’ts When Riding on a Plane" you will find this gem:
Fasten your seat belt during takeoff and landing
When you haven’t experienced turbulence then take-off and landing is a simple version. It’s a mandatory safety measure to have your safety belts on; depending on the prevailing wind system.
International flights have an automated system of using the belts such that when a passenger doesn’t comply, there is an alert and the plane can’t move until you do so. It’s the best way, for your safety.
First time I have heard of this innovation. The company operated a single ERJ-145 according to the "Our fleet" page on their site.Have a look - it passes the time for a few minutes.

Another amusing innovation are the 'shared tables in business class'. There is a link to show how strong they are (but not all that strong), which leads to a page selling table saws.

Surely this 'airline' never existed?

Oh it existed. Its founder was the former CEO of South African Airways, and their execs included two other top SAA execs (one of whom returned to SAA later and is still running a major department there).
