“Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is your captain Richard welcoming you on board Naija Airways. We apologize for the four-day delay in taking off. It was due to bad weather and some overtime I had to put in at the bakery. This is flight 126 to Lagos.
Landing in Lagos is not guaranteed, but we will end up somewhere in the south. If luck is our favor, we may even be landing in your village! Naija Airways has an excellent safety record. In fact, our safety standards are so high that even terrorists are afraid to fly us! It is with pleasure that I announce that starting this year, 50 percent of our passengers have reached their destination. If our engines are too noisy for you, on passenger request, we can arrange to turn them off! To make your free fall to earth pleasant and memorable, we serve complimentary tea and biscuits!
For our not-so-religious passengers, we are the only airline that can help you find out if God really exits! We regret to inform you that today’s in-flight movie will not be shown as we forgot to record it from the television. But for our movie buffs, we will be flying right next to Air Albarka, where their movie will be visible from the right side of the cabin window. There is no smoking allowed in this airplane. Any smoke you see in the cabin is only the early warning system on the engines telling us to slow down! In order to catch important landmarks, we try to fly as close as possible for the best view. If, however, we get a little too close, do let us know. Our enthusiastic co-pilot sometimes flies right through the landmark!
Kindly be seated, keep your seat in an upright position for take-off and fasten your seat belt. For those of you who can’t find a seat belt, kindly fasten your own belt to the arm of your seat, and for those of you, who can’t find a seat, do not hesitate to get in touch with a stewardess who will explain how to fasten yourself to your suitcase.
Enjoy Naija Airways!”
