“This overhead bin is full.”
It’s no secret that flying in a commercial airliner can be a pain in the behind these days. Packed planes, no legroom, and cranky passengers can make flying a real drag. That’s why we at Avgeekery are excited to rank the Top 5 most Epic-ly Awesome Safety Videos of all time. We salute those hard working flight attendants (and airlines) who do their part to make flying just a little more fun.

#1 Another Southwest Flight Attendant’s Mid-Life Crisis is Your Safety Briefing
This relative newcomer to the Safety Briefing video scene is really funny. It’s as if she’s been practicing her material for years (she probably has).
