WestJet CEO Gregg Saretsky’s 5 favourite flight attendant jokes

The Calgary-based airline’s flight attendants have always been known for the jokes they tell passengers. Here are some of the best, picked by the company’s chief executive:


1. What do you give the man who has everything? A burglar alarm.

2. Two women were overheard talking at a coffee shop. “I just got back from a pleasure trip,” said the first. “So did I,” said the second. “I just dropped my husband off at the airport.”

3. What does Canada produce that no other country produces? Canadians!

4. Two men were chatting on a WestJet plane recently. “My wife thinks I’m too nosy,” said one. “Really?” asked the second. “Yeah,” he replied. “At least that’s what she keeps writing in her diary.”

5. A WestJet flight attendant was telling a bunch of very corny jokes on a flight recently, but wasn’t sure the PA system was working. She asked if anyone in the back of the plane could hear her and one man stood up and yelled, “No!” That’s when a man in the front row stood up, turned around and said “Great! Can I trade places with you?”

  1. I realize it’s kind of a holidayish mood right now…even though Xmas comes every year, so it’s not exactly a surprise.

    I realize this is a blog and not a newsite.

    Even so….this is bottom-of-the-barrel stuff guys.

    Didn’t anyone give a thought to temps?

    Or at least set aside a few GOOD stories?

    • With as many comments as you have made madam, I am certain you have been invited on at least one other occasion to move along if you find the fare offered on this site not to your liking. I will again remind you that you needn’t be disdainful of the works you read here, merely turnoff the blog and do not participate. Myself and perhaps many like me would be eternally grateful if you made the sacrifice. Perhaps, a New Years resolution to stop visiting Macleans?

      • The media invites comments in order to improve themselves.

        Listen to the comments and lose the ‘tude.

        • I will take that as a “no” then. I even posted as a guest so you wouldn’t be biased but I guess my suggestion that you find a new hobby in 2014 is not to your liking. Oh well, carrying on then as you undoubtedly will anyway.

          • I think you have a colossal nerve telling a fellow-Canadian not to express an opinion.

            I know you weren’t an only child, so don’t act like one.

          • Hahaha! Is that what you got from my comment….a suggestion that you restrict your freedom of speech? That is a good one! Read it again! I suggested you get a life or at the very least, a new hobby! What you clearly don’t recognize yourself is that you are now ripping apart fluff lifestyle pieces of journalism. Start living in the real world and get your head out from behind the keyboard. Don’t give the bs excuse that these comments are made during work hours because you are making 30 or so comments 7 days a week. Take a break. Get a life. Walk among the real, breathing speaking people. Hug your grand kids.

          • Amounts to the same thing HI…..and again, it’s none of your business how I live my life. The nerve of some people!

  2. The jokes have to be lame. It’s by design. They are all vetted way in advance to ensure they don’t offend anyone. You might be surprised at how little it takes to offend people these days and how many of those people threaten to go to the media to tell tales of woe of how the joke was a personal insult and that such outrage will only be resolved by WestJet giving them free flights.

  3. forced smiles and rehearsed knee slappers……groan
