Air New Zealand: a threat to those not self-distancing on board

Air New Zealand:  a threat to those not self-distancing on board

The airline will reportedly make passengers who don’t obey social distancing guidelines on board, watch the controversial rap safety video from 2018, which was withdrawn after various critics called it embarrassing.

Let’s face it, it is embaressing, if still amusing.

And I particularly love the line used about tightening the fit of your life jacket:

“Make sure its tight like my arse and safety raps.”

Air New Zealand ’80’s Safety Rap

Air New Zealand has a history of making great safety videos. If you have a few minutes in isolation, here are a couple for you to enjoy:

More Hollywood:

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Hope you enjoyed this Wednesday break, brought to you by Air New Zealand Safety Videos
