A video of a SpiceJet pilot has gone viral thanks to his poetic deliverance of an inflight announcement. The pilot’s creativity thoroughly entertained all passengers on board the flight.
SpiceJet Pilot Announcement Details
On December 16th, the passengers boarded the SpiceJet flight from Delhi to Srinagar. After being seated on the aircraft, the SpiceJet pilot shared essential details and necessary instructions regarding the flight with the passengers, yet used both rhyming words and a melody to provide a musical twist.
The viral video clip of the SpiceJet pilot’s announcement uploaded by Twitter user ‘Eepsita’ has since received over 102k views and 4.9 k likes. The user shared her thoughts about the act.
“In a @flyspicejet flight from Delhi to Srinagar & omg, the captain killed it! They started in English, but I only began recording later. Idk if this is a new marketing track or if it was the captain himself, but this was so entertaining & endearing!”

The Indian airline has since acknowledged and replied to the video.
“Glad you liked it, Eepsita. Please DM us your PNR so we may share your words with our Captain. Stay #RedHotSpicy.”
Not the only time
Though not frequent, this is not the first time passengers have heard a pilot subvert the formal announcement expected to be heard while on an aircraft.
Southwest Airlines have also been known amongst fliers for using Mid-air humour to lighten the delivery of serious announcements such as safety precautions.
“Welcome aboard Southwest Flight 245 to Tampa. To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt, and if you don’t know how to operate one, you probably shouldn’t be out in public unsupervised.”
For many travellers, going abroad via plane can be an intimidating experience. Airlines providing passengers with a moment of light comic relief using mid-air humour could be seen as a clever tactic to help settle a traveller’s nerves.
