"Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is your Captain Abdo Abou Mazag
welcoming you to Egypt Air.
We apologize for the four-day delay in taking off, it was due to
bad weather and some overtime I had to put in at the bakery.
This is flight 126 to Tunis... Landing in Tunis is not guaranteed, but we will end up somewhere in the West. And if luck is in
our favor, we may even be landing on your village!
Egypt Air has an excellent record for safety. In fact our safety
standards are so high that even the terrorists are afraid to fly with us!
It is with pleasure I announce that starting this year over 50%
of our passengers have reached their destination.
If our engines are too noisy for you, on passenger request, we
can arrange to turn them off!
To make your free fall to earth pleasant and memorable, we serve
complimentary tea and biscuits!
For our not-so-religious passengers, we are the only airline who
can help you find out if there really is a God!
We regret to inform you, that today's in flight movie will not
be shown as we forgot to record it from the television. But for our movie buffs, we will be flying right next to Air Tunis , where their movie will be visible from the right side of the cabin window.
There is no smoking in this airplane. Any smoke you see in the
cabin is only the early warning system on the engines telling us to slow down!
In order to catch important landmarks, we try to fly as close as
possible for the best View. If, how! ever, we go a little too close, do let us know.
Our enthusiastic co-pilot sometimes flies right through the
landmark!
Kindly be seated, keep your seat in an upright position for take
off and fasten your belt.
For those of you who can't find a seat belt, kindly fasten your
own belt to the arm of your seat.
And for those of you who can't find a seat, do not hesitate to
get in touch with a stewardess who will explain how to fasten yourself to your suitcase
