Delta and safety

It is the trend to make airline safety videos more and more interesting and eye catching.  No matter how many times you have travelled by aeroplane it is essential to watch the screening.

It is mandatory to demonstrate the drill, but it is very difficult to make all passengers attentive, whatever innovative schemes are dreamt up to make it more interesting for the  regular traveller.

Delta has given up with the idea that President Ed Bastain would grab your attention and has now come up with a ‘funny’ featuring 23 popular themes, the emphasis still on seat belts and emergency exits.

The short film starts off with some music from the "Keyboard Cat."  Next up, "Double Rainbow Guy" demonstrates the appropriate use of the overhead container followed by the "Annoying Orange" being safely stowed for take-off.  "Roomba Cat" glides down the aisles in his signature shark costume and passengers experience the "Invisible Seat Prank," while learning about emergency exits.

Once the seatbelt sign is turned off, passengers are free to move about the cabin and "Do the Harlem Shake" and are reminded though "Deltalina" and "The Screaming Goat" that smoking is prohibited during the flight.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vttuonfu2BM
