Pilots announcements/greetings

Flew out of BOS to BWI yesterday first leg pilot made several announcements gave BWI weather and landing times and thanked us before landing. Next leg nothing you knew this might happen as several planes awaiting takeoff no announcement of our position and did a ding before takeoff and FAís made the cleared to takeoff call. No destination weather or arrival info nothing from the cockpit at all. I have flown a few hundred flights the past 40 years this is unusual. Are pilots given any procedures about what announcement to make to passengers or is it there call.

I agree. Itís Impossible to follow what poster is saying.

Why is it that people donít give a damn anymore about the way they write and talk? Folks have no pride in being able to form a sentence anymore. Itís truly mortifying.

Take two minutes to proofread what your write!

Your pilot only had one leg?

I think I got what you're asking, it's entirely up to the pilot on what to say and if they even speak to passengers. The only requirement is communication with the flight crew and passengers in cases of emergencies or other irregularities.

Actually, it's
1. Yes
2. Yes

SWA pilots are given general procedures and examples for passenger announcements but have significant leeway in when/how/if they are presented.

Some past posters have indicated that English is their second language, hence they post poor grammar or spelling. I think most people just look past poor grammar since this is an international forum. However, writing skills in general are on the decline.
