... and the entire Crew would like to welcome you aboard. May I kindly ask you to fasten your seatbelts now, making sure they are pulled tight. And for your own safety we recommend that you keep your seatbelts fastened during the entire flight. My name is Michael Stein, I’m the purser on your flight today and do wish you a pleasant stay on board.
You are welcome to use your own electronic equipment after take off when the fasten seat belt signs above you have been switched off. The use of mobile phones is generally not permitted on board our aircraft, and therefore all mobile phones should be switched off completely at this time. Further details are available in your inflight magazine, which you may find in the seat pocket in front of you. May we please remind you once more that you store heavy baggages under your front seats and not in the overhead compartments as they may shift during flight. Thank you.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we will acquaint you now with the safety features of this aircraft. Please pay attention to the flight attendants. First of all we demonstrate how to fasten and unfasten your seatbelt.
If there is a loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will automatically drop from the cabin ceiling. If that happens pull one of the masks towards you, and press the opening firmly over your nose and mouth. Then assist any children traveling with you. Your life jacket is under your seat. Please observe the following demonstration. Pull the life jacket over your head. Attach the straps to the hook in front. Then pull the belt until it is tight. Just before you leave the aircraft pull these red tabs to inflate your jacket. If necessary use the rubber tubes to inflate it. Should you leave the aircraft through an emergency exit over the wings, do not inflate your jacket until you have left the aircraft. This small signal lamp lights up on contact with water, when you pull the plug out of the battery. You will find an information card explaining all safety instructions in the seat pocket in front of you. Please take particular note of the location of the eight emergency exits, which are all identified by the word EXIT. Illuminated escape path markings will guide you to these exits. And please keep in mind, that the next available exit might be behind you. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask one of your flight attendants. Ladies and Gentlemen we are now ready for take-off.
