Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at the airports:
All we need to do is develop a security booth that you can step into that will NOT X-ray you, but WILL detonate any explosive device you may have hidden on or in your body.
The explosion will be contained within the sealed booth. This would be a win-win for everyone.
There would be none of this baloney about racial profiling and the device would eliminate long and expensive trials. This is so SNARKY simple that it's brilliant.
I can see it now: you're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion.
Then shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system,
"Attention standby passengers, we now have a seat available on flight number........"
Kulula is a low-cost South-African airline that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Kulula is an Airline with head office situated in Johannesburg. Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Above in the video are some real examples that have been heard or reported:
On a Kulula flight, (there is no assigned seating, you just sit where you want) passengers were apparently having a hard time choosing, when a flight attendant announced, "People, people we're not picking out furniture here, find a seat and get in it!"
On another flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."
On landing, the stewardess said, "Please be sure to take all of your belongings.. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have."
Don't panic if your Kulula pilot announces that your flight has just landed in Harare - they love joking. Kulula Airlines is one of 3 low cost carriers operating in South Africa (Mango and 1time are the others), and is known for its humorous in-flight commentary and advertisements.
The Kulula brand is owned by Comair (who also operate British Airways flights in South Africa), a company listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, and its steadily-increasing offering includes travel, credit cards and cellphone connections.
The word kulula is Zulu for it is light or it is easy/simple. Don't believe? Check Snopes HERE
