Post Asiana: The Flying Circus

Sorry for the horribly unoriginal thread title. This comes from the official Asiana site:

"Flying Magic Show"

In order to break up the monotony of long-haul flights, Asiana has trained a group of talented flight attendants to entertain and amuse you. Primarily on our transpacific and leisure routes, such as Bangkok, Saipan, Guam, and Sydney, customers have the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful after-dinner show of live music and magic. Flight attendants may perform stage tricks or individual hand tricks, making things magically disappear and reappear again. Customers may also have the opportunity to hear performances by a string quartet, choir, or solos on the violin, saxophone, or flute.

Asiana cabin crews are also trained bartenders who will walk through the cabin and offer some exotic cocktails. Along with a shake and a stir, you can enjoy your drink, the magic show, a long nap, or the upcoming movie.

The flying magic show has some special features for the children, too. Asiana crew can paint children's favorite cartoon characters or animals on children's faces. They will also make caricature drawings and offer some fun giveaway gifts.

It is the birthday celebrations that impress customers the most. Magic crews sing songs, take pictures, and on top of that, also sing some famous folk songs from various countries. As of October 1999, folksong service covers 8 countries, Korea, Japan, China, India, England, Germany, United States, and Australia.

(there is even a few pix of FAs doing their thing!)

Didn't believe it at first; I think this is hilarious! Yet highly innovative...

In all fairness to them, well done; not for nothing did OZ win the ATW Passenger Service award last year.

Illusionists on board . . . a first, but not altogether unprecendented for Asiana. Could that IL62 they taxied through in Anchorage, a year or so ago, have been an optical . . . Ilyushin?

Well now, an original bit of thinking, to keep the punters happy...something that US airlines with their frowning & grumpy cabin crew could never hope to achieve.
