I recently took a DL 737-800 from SAV-ATL. When they showed the safety video it was on a 777 and the people took it real calmly about a depressurization. (If you've seen it you know what Im talking about!) In real life there would be mass terror. I guess Delta is real stingy!

I've seen the new Delta safety video too (it was on an L1011, they showed the 777 there too). As I can recall on the various airlines I've flown safety videos always show the people reacting calmly to the mask. Why show passengers watching the video that they should panic?

Plus, why get all the people who are afraid to fly all upset by showing something less than calm? It's also because of the same reason that inflight movies have parts edited out that deal with airplane disasters/crashes.
Anyone remember when in the movie "Rainman" where Raymond is spouting off airline crash statistics in his autistic way? Completely edited out.......

United has a 767 interior for the shots that don't require a specific plane (masks, seatbelts, etc.), then they switch to a rotating 3D shot of the respective airplane to show exits/slides/escape routes.

All airlines safety videos are like that, I flew Continental, Northwest and Hawaiian over christmas and in the safety video they all said "the cabin is pressurized for your comfort" and they were calm about the masks and everything. I just wonder why they said it is for your comfort.

It is not only Delta. It is every airline. Like Hawaiian717 said & LoadFactor pointed out, imagine if they showed a video with people stumbling, running over each other, flight attendants screaming to no avail, etc? That would not reassure anyone. I guess most people in the back of their minds know that the videos don't really show the reality of what really happens in case of an emergency, but it does calm the passengers in a way.

yes,Delta is known for stingy information videos.I wish they would go all out and do a TITANIC type video with
people stepping on each other,pushing ect. to get to exits.Maybe show people getting sucked out of windows
and passing out during depressurization,now that would be a nice way of reassuring people of the safety of commercial aviation!

The thing about decompressions is that 99.9% of the time, they are SLOW decompressions, and not RAPID decompressions, so there wouldn't be any need to show people being sucked out, or running up and down, etc (although it might look pretty cool...)

I think they do that to just show people how they SHOULD act!! Why would they show people running amuck when they SHOULD stay calm? So my opinion is they are showing the pax HOW they should act if a depressurization happens!

You all are talking about people running around if a depressurization happens...where would the passengers run out to?
Dangerous depressurizations would happen while in the air, so if a depressurization happens while in flight, the best thing you can do is stay in your seat, wait for the oxygen masks, or if they don't deploy...hold your breath & hang on to your butts cause you will be falling soon!! (as the pilot descends into a lower altitude for allowing normal breathing.)

Over Christmas break, I flew Delta SFO-SLC-DEN and back, and I saw there new safety videos. Boy oh boy was I crackin up in my seat when I heard the female F/A. She had the most monotone voice I had ever heard. It was SOOO obvious she was reading from a teleprompter!
