We must dim the lights

On a Continental Flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the pilot said: "Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."

    I love it when flight attendants have a sense of humor. Helps make crazy travel days a bit more bearable.

      A sense of humour is pretty essential these days in every area of travel. A few jokes and a bit of a light touch would make security lines a lot more bearable but everybody is so po-faced. I guess we've all heard the stories about people who have cracked jokes and then got into trouble for it.

    I fly regularly as a non-rev, so on flights with few people I sit in the escape row, and the flight attendants usually know your a non-rev so so we talk, they have great stories, the best are the really old guys who've been working for 20+ years.

    PS. I figure you all know but just in case, a non-rev is a person who flies for free, usually because a family member works for the airline.
