    Before the safety video, Richard Anderson comes on and welcomes everyone to Delta. While I have mixed feelings on Mr. Anderson, I think he comes across as genuine and I think it will impress a lot of people. I also note that he might have picked up a bit of a southern accent. :) Your thoughts?

    I don't usually watch those things until they start speaking in Spanish. :D

    Then I listen to try to keep my ear in tune for listening to it. How much success I have with that is certainly an open question. :rolleyes:

    I'm gonna go all statistical on you for just a second....

    Exactly 59.84% of people will say they HATE the Richard Anderson welcome message;
    Exactly 35.12% of people will say they LOVE the Richard Anderson welcome message and thou shalt pay close attention to said message;
    Precisely 5.04% of people will say they NEITHER love or hate the Richard Anderson welcome message; some were caught reading their Kindles during the video while others were too busy watching the gate marshal doing cartwheels.

    Hopefully he's not foreshadowing some safety "enhancements"...

    My thoughts are that he came across the same way in the executive Q&A last October at the Delta FT event. I don't really need to elaborate on what has been done since then. :rolleyes:

    No.

    That is one of the musicians of The Beach Boys.

    By the way, it is interesting that I am at the airport in Phoenix as I saw the photograph. She must already be sleeping since I already got to Phoenix - on my way from Boston to Orlando through Los Angeles...

    My thoughts? I am waiting for this integrity, honesty, & mutual respect of which he speaks.

    Would you settle for one out of three?

    Does one of those three actually apply? :confused:

    Probably not, but it might be easier to get one than all three.

    "and I get to sit at his desk every daaay." Who cares?

    What I hear is "I am the guy who obliterated NWA and proud of it."

    Perhaps he should have to read that advertisement for the Delta Amex card instead of making the flight attendants read it on every flight.

    It seems as though my skymiles devalue every time I have to watch that video.

    The cadence of RA's voice reminds me of Mr. Hand from South Park :eek:
