You’ve probably seen all these clips before, but I thought I’d mention them for the few that have not. There are three TV clips that I often think of when boarding a plane. My favorite flying phrases, that get strange looks if you don’t know them, come from these episodes: “I’m coachy!”, “People up here are getting cookies!” and “get your foot off our rug!”.
The most recent is Larry David’s Coachy vs First Classy:
Secondly the funny flight of Jerry (in First Class) and Elaine (in Coach) when Elaine sneaks into First Class:
And the classic of them all, this skit from the Carol Burnett show. Other than smoking on the plane it shows that not too much has changed since deregulation over three decades ago. This clip is a little longer, but well worth watching in its entirety including the turbulence towards the end.
