"In the unlikely event of a water landing..."

You know, I fly around 100,000 miles a year and I've heard that pre-flight safety briefing so many times I can just about recite it myself. The part about the "unlikely water landing" always made me snicker to myself because I always figured that, apart from being unlikely, it would also be highly unsurvivable. Shows you what I know.

Kudos all around to the pilots and crew, and to the ferry captains who quickly took it upon themselves to attend to the passengers. Awesome job.

Kudos too, to the passengers. Ordinary people faced with disaster rose to the occasion. Heroes all of them.
