Welcome aboard !

Hi..m back wid a splat(yea splat & not bang..since its holi..anyways poor joke)
The other day I was flying from Mumbai to Kolkata when I observed something rather amusing..
Well it amused me atleast..
I was half asleep..When I was awoken by a sudden change in speed of the aircraft. Then almost immediately came the announcement:
"We are about to land at the Netaji Subhas Chandra International Airport in Kolkata."
And in a few minutes the plane touched ground and it happened..
As soon as the wheels hit the ground came another announcement

"The flight has safely landed. Welcome to Kolkata. We request all passengers to remain seated and keep their seat belts fastened till the plane reaches to a complete halt. It is to remind all passengers that the use of cell phones and other electronic equipments is still not allowed and please keep them off. The temperature on the outside is...."

But people had already gotten up from their seats (obviously unfastened their seatbelts), claimed their luggages from the overhead carriers, informed their loved ones over their oh-that-is-supposed-to-be-switched-off-till-the-flight-stops cell-phones about their safe landing and formed a queue at the exits to descend from the aircraft.
If only the doors were open I am sure no one would still be on board to hear the last lines:

"....Hope you enjoyed your flight. Thank you for flying with us"
