"In the HIGHLY unlikely of a water landing between Salt Lake...(pause)...and Phoenix, your seat cushion will double as a flotation device."

For Oregon fans traveling to the BCS Championship game Wednesday evening, even the flight was a party, thanks to the entertaining crew.

"Just a reminder that this is, of course, a no-smoking flight. As well as a no-whining, and no-complaining flight."

Another helpful note: "In case of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, those of you traveling with small children or husbands, please attach your mask first and then take care of them."

As we prepared to land, she politely requested that passengers "return your seats to the full, upright, uncomfortable locked position."

And she wrapped up the flight by singing a Southwest Airlines-modified version of "Na na na na, hey hey hey, good bye."

This was the first time I've been on a flight where the crew got an ovation from the passengers and it wasn't because people were just happy to survive the landing.

Frank Mungeam will be blogging for KGW.com from Arizona leading up the BCS Championship Game.
