SNL has aired two airline skits recently, which I think are worth sharing. Both of them have similar themes, involving flight attendant announcements in the same mock-up cabin (which seems way too spacious, especially for Southwest, since the seats seem to be first class seats).
The first skit was in December, and was supposed to take place on Aer Lingus:
I thought it was reasonably funny, though even funnier was Aer Lingus’ response to the skit on Twitter:
Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Ronan impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad

This past Saturday SNL did a skit that’s based on something most of you have probably seen. Specifically, I’m talking about Southwest’s rapping flight attendant:
In the SNL skit, Gareth (played by Will Ferrell) adds a dark twist to the safety rap that Spencer (Chris Redd) and Sabrina (Aidy Bryant) have created. Here’s the SNL skit:
It’s cute that they went with something airline themed, though personally I feel like this is only mildly funny, at best. Maybe it’s partly that I don’t find Will Ferrell to be especially funny (even though I consider myself to be a connoisseur of stupid humor), but I feel like they could have taken a different angle to make this funnier.
Which of these SNL skits do you find to be funnier?
