    What a great video. Voted for Vegas but they were all really good. The Aussie/roo one was clever.

    Finally ! I don’t have to see that disgusting Smisek tell me about how CO killed the UA brand and ruined the airline!

    I quite liked the video. Took a second to “get it” but it’s really clever. It does a good job getting people to pay attention to the content (which I’m sure the FAA likes) but it also, for me at least, reminded me about how much I love traveling. I voted for the ski gondola, but also really loved the Australian scene. Overall, a fresh take on the safety video that won’t be annoying to have to sit through! (…Looking at you, Virgin America)

    I loved Australia and the pouch video. I think this is the first time I’ve found United to be “cute”!

    I like Air New Zealand’s video featuring Bear Grylls: “If cabin pressure falls, an oxygen mask will drop in front of you. You COULD use it as a portable loo, but a much better idea would be….”

    It’s in that vein.

    Finally a sense of some humor and still get the point across. A reason to look up from the reader. I lime it all but partial to Aussie’s, always great with humor.

    United’s safety video – 4:34.

    JAL’s safety video – 4:24. That’s with everything covered in both English and Japanese.

    When will airlines learn that “short” is better than “cute”? Between safety videos, pointless monologues by slimy CEOs, and constant overhead announcements reminding me I could earn more miles with the airline’s co-branded credit card, I’m verbally bombarded from gate to gate these days.

    I neither need nor expect customer service onboard anymore. At this point, I would be content to have them just shut the f&^% up.
