Which airline has the best, or at least your favorite, preflight safety video?

I'll start

Two-way tie between American and Air Canada.

They have a very nice video (kind of "Toy Story" animated) very creative!..

VS has been the best so far. The cartoon really gets your attention.

I think CO and KLM with their very hot flight attendants saying "please, remain seated", uh, its the best!

I only fly CO, and I've never paid any great deal of attention to their safety video. Maybe it's because I'm used to it, but it doesn't seem to be anything special. However, if I saw another airline's video, maybe I would change my mind.

One thing that irks me is how Chavon says to stow your "seatbacks, tray tables, and video monitors in the upright position" at the end of the video. She is obviously standing in a 772. What percentage of CO's flights even have PTVs?

Mine would be MyTravel Airways'. It is a cartoon and is made a lot more people friendly which gets a lot more people watching. Great idea!

I've always liked US Airways' safety video. Mostly because of the music & the music used during the safety instructions are being read. Just bought a 737-400 video of theirs off eBay. NW's & DL's (have an L10 safety of DL's, also off eBay) are good too.

Another one I bought recently was Tower Air's...it's not too good, although I found it interesting that they explained which buttons did what in the armrests (I know what they do, but new fliers may not have) & neat that they had a pilot, in the cockpit, say "On behalf of the Flight Deck, welcome aboard Tower Air" at the end.

I enjoyed watching BMI British Midlands safety video but for some reason I have taken on a liking to the UAL safety video on the 777-200 which I flew about 2 years ago to HNL from LAX. I just liked how it said Welcome in like 40 different languages. But I loathe HP's with the stupid flight attendent who does her model walk onto the screen which I always laugh at. Also I found BA's to be very informative.

Tupolev I agree SAA's is great!

Animated and very well done.

voice: "take care when opening the overhead lockers in flight as items may have shifted during the takeoff and can fall out and cause injury"

video: man in seat is buried under baggage falling from the open locker, then is show with band aids all over his face

voice: "once the seatbelt signs have been switched off you may use certain laptoo computers, hand held calculators, electric shavers and portable listening devices"

video: teenager on laptop, Desperate Dan type character with electric razor and Elvis with walkman!

Then there's the smoke alarm above the toilet door and the guy going green trying to hide the fact that he's smoking  Smile

very good and keeps the pax' attention

After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Air China's did it for me this summer, specifically where the mother rams an oxygen mask onto her unsuspecting child, very funny, just a shame I didin`t have a clue what they were talking about as it wasn`t in English. Also the stewardess couldn`t get her life jacket on properly, managed to get the pax's concentration though while she tried.

In the US Airways videos, the scene that talks about using the oxygen mask, the little girl is smiling and seems happy that the oxygen mask fell in front of her.
