757-300 Safety Video On A 737-800, How Bizzare!

Hi Guys,

I witnessed something weird flying home today on a Sun D'or 737-800 (ELAL 738 EKI),
The safety video said we're flying on a 757-300 and thus portrayed exits and aircraft details of a 757-300. I don't even remember when ELAL/Sun D'or used 753s (that belong to Arkia).
I mentioned it to the F/A who looked surprised and she replied "Really?! This isn't a 757 nor a 300". She said she would let the purser know but there wasn't any re-screening on the video.

I just found this totally wierd, how did this video end up on this plane and why the h*** didn't the purser notice it?

Any thoughts?

I used to have a small business that supplied Safety Cards to a number of smaller airliners here in Canada. When talking to the flight safety crew one one of the airlines, they stated that if any cards were incorrect on a plane, they could be charged up to $1000 (IIRC) PER SEAT for a safety infraction!


I realize that this incident didn't happen in Canada, but I wonder, would the same type of fine be applicable in Israel?

Similar fine in the US, even for non-current revisions.

I've had a 747-400 safety video on a 777-200ER. It was flight BA28, HKG-LHR departing 31st Aug at 12:35am. Once the video was over, the flight attendant immediately came on the PA to acknowledge the mistake and the 777-200ER video was promtly played.

I'm pretty sure I've had the same thing happen.

On a QK flight from YQU to YYC, they completely skipped the safety demo!

Why wait? I've seen FA's pause the safety video if something was awry and restart it many times.

Even though the type is the same...the more exit on an -800. That could cause confusion in an evac!

Maybe it was pointed out to them by a pax during the post-video walkthrough of the cabin?

That occurred to me, but Pacific stated that the announcement came immediately after the video finished.

I've seen a 747-200 Demo on the 747-300 of Iberia - same number of exits, but they are different on the upper-deck.

A bit scarry if the F/a did not even know what type of A/C she was working on. I was about to say that I did not know Sun D'ore had the 753 at all.

the f/a I pointed it out to knew she was working on a B738, but didn't seem to care too much about the error that had occurred.

I don't know about American but SAA does. One video on all types, and the only manual part is the crew pointing out the exits at the appropriate time in the video.

The only difference is that domestic flights do not include the part about lifejackets (no overwater segments).

Yeah, theres a segment in there that says "Please refer to your safety card for specific emergency information about this airplane." The video is very vague.

Weird incident. Someone was not very concentrated on his/her job... They could have played the 738 video but one has also to admit that nobody is really listening to those safety videos...

Sun d'Or has never had 753s but El Al, Sun d'Or, Arkia and Israir are renting airplanes between them according to their respective needs.......

As for the video, it can happen and should be rectified. I've (unfortunately) had to restart the video several times, though all because of faults with the IFE and not because it was the wrong tape.

With regards to the safety cards I know that some airlines have different coloured cards for each aircraft type in the fleet, that makes it easier for the cabin crew to spot the wrong card when doing the seatpocket checks as part of the preflight.

The worst incident I've ever encountered was when deadheading back to BRS with FR on a 737-200, the crew did a manual demonstration but they said it was a 737-800 and even pointed out the non-existent extra over wing exits. English wasn't the native language of any of the crew so I guess they got muddled up.

Amazing.are there multiple videos on the IFE,as for multiple type fleet or was it a single for each type.If it was former that could be the confusion.

A serious one though.

Recently, I flew several times with THY B 737-800s. When they explain the emergency slides in that safety video the plane looks suddenly like an Airbus A 340 or A 330. This is of course not relevant in terms of safety but for a plane freak it looks strange.

SA have a number in the centre of all four edges on the front and back of the safety card so that no matter how it is placed in the seat pocket you can see which card it is.

WJ also did a variation of the same idea (although in hindsight I think the SA idea is better). When originally introduced, our design had the plane type name in the middle of the card. Six years later, and the type name was moved to the top of the card. Also, (at the time) the card front was a different colour for each subfleet (only the -700 and -800 when I was still doing it).
