As someone who flies with British Airways a lot, I can tell you I was getting enormously sick of their safety information video. A slightly creepy cartoon, showing spaced-out passengers gliding around the cabin. They moved as if they’d been tranquilized and the voiceover made me shudder every time I heard it.
Once you’ve seen it six times in one week, it definitely loses its appeal.
Last week, on a flight to Dublin, there was a completely new safety information video – and it was a very welcome change. It even got a few laughs out of the passengers, which is some feat first thing in the morning.
This is a special edition, featuring a selection of British celebrities, and it’s all in aid of Comic Relief.
I’m secretly hoping that they don’t return to the creepy cartoon and eventually replace this with something a little more up to date.
