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

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

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.”

The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel.

It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.

This move to home grown and manufactured SAF is a first step – maybe even a baby step in a very long road of innovation. In the long run, US$200 million won’t even touch the sides.

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