Does anyone else do this? I work for Delta as a flight attendant and I feel like it makes things light and the passengers get a little laugh especially when it's early. It also makes my job a little more exciting when we have to repeat the same message a few times a day. I sometimes say, "We are so happy to have you aboard Delta airlines today. We are pleased to have some of the BEST flight attendants in the industry!! ....Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight.” It always gets a chuckle.
