  • Hello and thanks for flying with Virgin America.

  • A few announcements as we begin our flight.

  • Everyone should have a look at the safety card that is in the seat pocket in front of you.

  • Not only does it have pretty pictures,

  • but it has an important information about the location

  • and how to operate all exists

  • and explains other safety features of this airplane.

  • Please keep your seat belts fasten whenever the seat belt light is on.

  • To be safe, we recommend your seat belts stay fasten whenever you are in your seat

  • just in case there is an unexpected turbulence.

  • And

  • please comply with instructions from the in-flight team with regards to the fasten seat belt sign.

  • For the point zero zero zero one percent of you,

  • who have never operated a seat belt before,

  • it works like this

  • Just insert the metal end into the buckle until it clicks

  • and pull on to loosen and to tighten.

  • To open, lift on top of the buckle.

  • Be sure the seat belt fits low and tight across your lap

  • and youre good to go

  • There are four doors,

  • two in the front and two on the rear.

  • Each door has an inflation slide which inflates when the door is open.

  • There are also two window exits over the wings

  • also equipped with inflation slides.

  • The slides in each door

  • can also be detached from the airplane

  • and used for flotation if necessary

  • Each door and window exit

  • is indicated by an exit sign.

  • There is also a path of white lights along the base of the seats

  • that lead to red lights which marked the exits

  • Take the moment to look around

  • and find your closest exit.

  • This maybe behind you.

  • Go on. Well wait.

  • It’s unlikely

  • but if the cabin pressure changes suddenly during the flight,

  • oxygen masks will automatically drop from the compartment above of your seat.

  • If this happens,

  • pull the mask down to your face and cover your nose and mouth.

  • Slip the elastic band around your head

  • and tightened by pulling the loose ends at each side of the mask.

  • Then, just breathe normally.

  • Oxygen will be flowing to the mask

  • so don’t worry if the bag doesn’t inflate.

  • Be sure to put your mask on before helping others

  • and keep it on until a crew member advises you to take it off.

  • Also unlikely is the possibility of a water landing.

  • But just in case

  • a pouch containing a life vest is located under your seat.

  • In first class,

  • theyre between seats at the floor level.

  • Take it out of the plastic bag

  • and place the vest over your head.

  • The strap goes around your waist

  • and attaches with a buckle

  • Pull on the end of the strap to tighten

  • as you leave the aircraft full sharply on the red plastic handles to inflate.

  • The vest can also be inflated by blowing into the red tubes at both shoulders.

  • A water activated locator light is attached at shoulder level.

  • Keep in mind that

  • your seat cushion is not a flotation device.

  • so please don’t take it home with you.

  • A word about complaints from our friends at the FAA,

  • the airplane is one big no smoking zone.

  • So you can’t smoke in the restrooms or anywhere else on the airplane.

  • Tampering with, disabling, or destroying restroom smoke detector isn’t allowed by law.

  • And everyone is required to follow the instructions from the in-flight team

  • and comply with lighted information signs and posted placards

  • Okay, as we get ready to take off

  • please check that your seat belts are fasten,

  • seats and tray tables are up,

  • and your electronics are off.

  • As the crew comes through to make a final cabin check,

  • please let us know if you have any questions or need any help.

  • We promised to do everything we can to make sure you have a safe comfortable flight.

  • Not least of which is ending this speech now.

  • Thanks!
