The Pre-Flight Flight Attendant Rap

Have you heard the fantastic pre-flight rap that one Southwest Airlines flight attendant has been doing?

The flight attendant, David Holmes, was recently the subject of a short interview at the Middle Seat Terminal. It’s worth a read.

Here’s my favorite part of the rap, which is performed to the beat of the passengers stomping and clapping:

Before we leave
Our advice is
Put away your electronic devices
Fasten your seat belt
Then put your trays up
Press the button
to make the seat back raise up

The expressions on the passengers’ faces are just as entertaining as the rap is itself. Video below.
