Well done Hawaiian! It's uniquely Hawaiian, informative and not trying too hard to one up the competition in this new age of creative safety briefing videos.

Only one airline is Hawaiian

Very nice! Love the inclusion of the Hawaiian language (although I wonder how many people would actually make use of it).

Exactly. It feels polished unlike all of those crazy safety videos out there these days.

Agreed and wish NZ at this end of Polynesia would also take a leadership stance on helping out the indigenous tongue.
come visit the south pacific

Not really a fan of safety videos that are "detached" from the aircraft. But I guess it still gets the point across.

Passengers might actually watch this one for that very reason.

Considering HA doesn't fly to Ni'ihau, practically none...

Great video, actually interesting to watch, and some of the best demonstrations that I have seen.
Does anyone know what stretch of road is featured at 00:20, and 00:35 in the video?

In this case, I don't think the the usage of olelo Hawaii, the Hawaiian language, is meant to teach people to speak it, but to showcase and preserve the beautiful spoken means of communication by the Hawaiian people. Many people visiting the State probably have no clue there is a native tongue. It's also meant to share another facet to this unique culture, which is a huge part of what draws people to the Hawaiian islands. While the language isn't widely spoken by the majority of the population, it once was, and has made a resurgence in the past 20+ years with several immersion schools teaching children from a young age, for example. It seems as though HAL is using the language in several areas of the brand, besides onboard announcements. Sometimes it's in very subtle places, but if you look closely, you'll find it.

My cousin is fluent in Hawaiian and her husband is conversational. I took Hawaiian as my foreign language in middle school. Many schools now offer it in high school. It is one of the official languages of the the State of Hawaii.

I'm glad Hawaiian's use is growing...I am glad HA is helping it along. Its a beautiful language to listen to, even if it you don't understand it. For many years they have had the entire 717 safety briefing recorded in Hawaiian and some F/As play it after the English briefing.

-Aloha!

That is a total understatement, it's so lyrical & majestic in it's flow, truly a pleasure for the ears, IMHO.
