Surprisingly I still like the VX, then VS, and then VA. They tried very hard with this one, rather rigid and not fluid like the VX one. And SRB ... yeah I would too hurry for approve portable electronic devices ding to come on so I would have something to do and not have to sit and look at SRB.
Otherwise, it's added to my collection of inflight safety videos on YouTube. Wish a few other airlines added theirs on the website!
The journey of life is not based on the accomplishments, but the experience.

Quoting AirbusA370 (Reply 4): What scares me the most is the possibility of SRB sitting next to me Big grin
Could this have been inserted to remind the flying public that V Australia is a Virgin/SRB airline. Singapore did say Virgin couldnt use its brand name across the pacific, but it didn't say it couldn't use its mascot - SRB! Quite a smart move by Virgin if this is the case.
BTW, I do like the reduced visibilty/escape lightining part. That was cool use of graphics.

I hated that, it was awful (this is my opinion as mentioned above many will disagree). The attempts at humor were lost on me, that demo would drive me nuts if I flew them frequently I think it goes beyond fun into the ridiculous. I understand the youthful approach to their product which is refreshing however I don't think it needs to go to the silly point, ie the demo, thongs in business, opera house salt and pepper shakers, these are not fun in my opinion but tacky, I hope they get toned down over time. The demo is not relevant in my decision to choose an airline, however small things like this diminish their brand in my eyes.
The Delta safety demo is fun but in a classier way I feel, and doesn't bother me in the slightest so I'm not adverse to fun demos, VA simply went over board and hopefully made only themselves look silly and not Australians in general.
I must confess though I do prefer non-animated videos, whilst the content of the BA one is okay the animations seem to cheapen it the VX one doesn't seem to bad though. In comparison to the VA demo both the VS and VX are much better in my opinion. Ahh well lets see how they go?
From the ones that I have seen I like the AF, QF and TG one the best, but different strokes I guess.

I love it... it was awesome and some added humor to keep everyone in a good mood before you take off... i rackon more airline should take this lighter / funny approach to safety video... some safety video nowadays could be sooooooo boring...

I think the portable electronic device light is the most interesting, behind SRB. It makes sense since practically all flights outside of the third word are non smoking and just about everybody brings their own device onboard nowadays.

Delta's new one with the HOT / flirtatious flight attendant definitely still takes the cake - I have flown over 200,000 miles in my lifetime (I know to some that is nothing), but I will watch this video every time
