"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.
