CP: Captain Martin

Question time!

I haven't been on a plane since I was a very small child and the only thing that I remember about it was that there was very good cheese. Which is not useful for the story I'm trying to write. My mum doesn't like flying, so we drove everywhere when we traveled.

Can anyone who has flown more recently let me know the rough order of things before take off? When does the safety demonstration happen? Does the captain address the plane before take off and if so, what sort of things might he/she say? Or does it happen once you're in flight? Any sort of outline would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
