Just when we thought Jet Blue’s nutty Steven Slater (and his inflatable slide to unemployment) had this year’s Funniest Flight Attendant award all sewn up, a new crew has gone viral.
No dull snooze-fest of safety instructions for this Cebu Airlines staff!
In a stunt that’s sweeping the internets, a line of dancing flight attendants hit the aisles on a recent voyage, grooving to a Lady Gaga-Katy Perry medley while giving passengers a hilarious demonstration of oxygen masks and exit routes.
Nothing like hearing about “the unlikely event” of a life-threatening emergency set to the tune of ‘California Gurls’!
In a statement, the low-cost Phillippine airline said: “Cebu Pacific has always been known as a fun airline, we wanted to get the message across to our customers that flight safety doesn’t have to be boring.”
The crew reportedly performed the standard saftety instructions while the aircraft was on the ground awaiting takeoff, before launching into their choreographed version in the skies.
The plane had just landed, but he was ready to take off.
A JetBlue flight attendant blew his top, grabbed some beer and bolted out an emergency slide at Kennedy Airport Monday – then headed home to have sex with his boyfriend.
After he was bonked in the head by a bag, Steven Slater stunned passengers by spewing profanity and ranting about quitting as the flight from Pittsburgh pulled up to the gate about noon.
“To the f—–g a–hole who told me to f–k off, it’s been a good 28 years,” Slater, 38, purred, cops said. “I’ve had it. That’s it,” he added, a passenger said.
The mad-as-hell steward grabbed a couple of beers and popped one open before activating the emergency exit, witnesses told airport employees. After tossing his two carry-on bags on the slide, he followed them to the tarmac.
Slater – who actually first started working for airlines 20 years ago, not 28 – then walked to the AirTrain, stripped off his company tie and flung it off as bemused passengers watched.
“I wish we could all quit our jobs like that,” said passenger Phil Catelinet, 36, of Brooklyn, who was on the flight and the AirTrain.
“He seemed kind of happy about it. He was like, ‘I just quit my job.’ “
Port Authority police said it took jetBlue 25 minutes to report the incident, allowing Slater time to leave the scene.
Cops found him in bed with his boyfriend when they arrived to arrest him at a beachfront home in the Rockaways with a porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, sources said. Click here to see a short clip of Steven being taken away in handcuffs while throwing a “Yeah…AND?” smirk at the cameras.
Slater was wearing a sheepish smile when Port Authority detectives walked him to a waiting van a few hours later. He was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.
JetBlue would not say how long Slater had worked for the airline, but he wrote on his MySpace page that he was “enjoying being back in the skies” after a five-year break.
