Airlines Add Commercials To Cockpit Announcements

Cockpit Naming Rights Also Being Considered

ANN April 1st Special Edition: Several major airlines announced Friday that, as of April 1st, announcements from the cockpit will be preceded by a commercial. Airline executives said they had several major sponsors lined up for the launch of the service.

"Pilots are known for their smooth delivery in their "this is your captain speaking" announcements," added Jeffery A. Smisek, president and CEO of United Continental Holdings. "The smooth, usually baritone, measured delivery telling the passengers that "we're about to experience a little turbulence" is a natural for selling shampoo or floor wax. To return the airline to profitability, we had to think outside the box. There are only so many fees with which you can gouge ... er ... ask your customers to pay."

Afternoon Box. Longtime (infrequent) visitor, somewhat longtime (even less infrequent) participant. What's up with the massive slowdown of posts in Teh Box?

Beautiful day in IAH. :cool:

I skimmed Teh Box the other day looking for the answer and it seemed as though things really slowed down in February. Wasn't sure if something happened or not. :confused:

:rolleyes:

Please remember do not use this forum for poast padding. Poast padding along the lines of poasty posts is just not good I would think. In conclusion, please no poasty posts of any nature. Oh yeah, I poast therefore I am.;)

Aha - I'm glad I'm not the only person who says "if and when." :) I sure will miss that PC though if-and-when your wish comes true...
