Inflight! : for choir (SATB) and electric bass guitar / Linda Kouvaras.

Work Overview

The text comes from dubious sources, supposedly uttered for light relief by flight attendants and pilots on various flights:

"There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this aeroplane..."

"Welcome aboard Warmjets Flight XXX to YYY. To operate your seatbelt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seatbelt and if you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised. In the event of a sudden loss of
cabin pressure, oxygen 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 two small children, decide now which one you love

"Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but they'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you or your money, more than Warmjets Airlines…"

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

"Last one off the plane must clean it…"

"We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal…"

"Oh yes, we thank you for flying Warmjets Business Express. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride…"
