I have to say that I totally agree with UN_B732
regarding Austrian's safety video...I'm not sure if it's only used on the A330/A340-INT
, but it's absolutely hysterical. This guy is a total klutz and he's trying to get with this woman throughout the safety video. It rocks!
The worst safety video I've ever seen? I flew Air Canada right
after the merger with Canadian, and did a YYZ
flight on an ex-Canadian Boeing 767-300ER. The safety video was not the Air Canada one (which is in fact regularly updated and classy), but Canadian's...
All I can say is WOAH! The safety video was circa 1987, and it was such
a skit! My mother and I were laughing hysterically at all of the "visual double entendres" (if you can make sense of that phrase) throughout the quick flick. Examples? I have NEVER in my life seen such form (in a safety video, at least
...) while blowing into the tubes on the life vest! And the look the flight attendant gives the passenger when he wants him to put his seat up? Woah...save it for those long and lonely trans-Pac runs, boys!
United's just plain sucks – at least the Canadian one was hysterical! United's has obviously just been updated instead of refilmed (ie, a cheap animation of the United First domestic seats is included to demonstrate the floor lighting system). Of course, United's excused due to their current situation.
Great Safety Videos: Air Canada, Austrian Airlines
Horrid Safety Videos: Canadian (but I'm thinking that's not an issue any longer...), United
...However, what United loses in terms of crappy safety videos, it makes up for in terms of legitimate in-flight entertainment:
