Kulula Airways.....

Kulula is a low-cost South-African airline that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Check out their new livery! And have a read about their Customer Relations.

Click on photos to enlarge.


Kulula is an Airline with head office situated in Johannesburg . Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported:

On another 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."


After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in the Karoo , a flight attendant on a flight announced, "Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as hell everything has shifted."


"In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child travelling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are travelling with more than one small child, pick your favourite."


"Your seats cushions can be used for flotation; and in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments."


"As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses.."


And from the pilot during his welcome message: "Kulula Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"


Heard on a Kulula flight. "Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing.. If you can light 'em, you can smoke 'em."

i saw one of those once, don't remember where but it was so funny! and if i have to use my seat cushion as a flotation device i'm going to need a second one because the first one is going to be used as a toilet!

smiles, bee

Every business should have this type of humor...

Linda said...

What a great looking plane - I love all of the writing on it and their sense of humour!

Honestly, most places take themselves way too seriously and I bet everyone would be a lot happier if things just relaxed a little bit. Flying can be such a nerve-wracking experience as it is, why not have some fun with it?

It made me giggle too Scots Lass :)

Me too Pam

I'm with you on the cushion thing Bee LOL

If only they did G-man, wouldn't it be great?

I think one couldn't help but be relaxed flying with this airline Linda :)

Dave said...

A fun company. All companies should take a lesson from this airline. It was humorous and yet I wanted to experience the offers

Thank You

Bwhahahahahhaha! OMG, how hysterical!

I'm not a big flyer (one of my fears), however this is one airline I think would make me forget about my fear and just LAUGH! More airlines should be this way.

Thanks for sharing, m'dear!

Have a great day....X

OMG I adore this post. I'd be first in the queue for this plane. All that humour is amazing ... I didn't think there was any left in the business world.

I love any company that has a sense of humor!

GEWELS said...

Hi Akela!

Quilly said...

Love, love, love this!

Akelamalu said...

Exactly right Dave - I imagine a flight with them would be great fun. :)

I enjoy flying anyway but I would love to fly with this airline Ron :)

That made me laugh too Julia ;)

Humour in the business world is unusual Valerie, more's the pity.

No they don't Gleds ;)

Glad it made you smile Thom. x

I don't think nervous flyers are happy with any airline really Cheshire Wife.

I'm pleased you enjoyed it Richies :)

It would be a laugh a minute wouldn't it Jeff? LOL

Hi Gewels, great to see you back. Glad you enjoyed it hon. x

Me too Quilly :)

I've read some of those before. Kulula Airlines sounds alot like Southwest Airlines here in the States.

I love that plane. Very playful.

nitebyrd said...

Very funny. I'm not a good flyer and it seems, as long pilot knew what he was doing, it would be a great airline to fly with!
