Airlines have tried various strategies over the years to gain passengers' attention during the safety announcements. Delta and others have produced elaborate videos. Entertainment, though, seems to work the best.

A Southwest Airlines flight attendant, who delivered what sounded like a professional comedy monologue during her in-flight announcements, earned a huge round of applause from everyone on the plane.
Posted on YouTube by the hilarious Marty Cobb herself, the video has tallied more than a million views since it was posted on Saturday.
