1. Air New Zealand’s Safety Old School Style
Air New Zealand know how to make a safety video that’s memorable for the right reasons. Take their Safety Old School video for example, where American comedian and actress Betty White takes centre stage, giving an old-school version of inflight safety. Simple, but effective.
2. British Airways’ star-studded safety video
British Airways’ latest safety video proves there’s nothing better than a bunch of celebrities to capture passengers’ attention. Created in collaboration with UK charity Comic Relief, the video follows ten British personalities as they audition for a part in a safety video – call it safety video inception. Comedian Rowan Atkinson, actor Sir Ian McKellen and chef Gordon Ramsay happily send themselves up.
3. Qantas’ 2017 safety video
There’s not much to say about Qantas’ latest safety video, except that it’s a little boring. We know they’re capable of more – we’ve all seen the tear-jerking “Feels Like Home” ads. Maybe it’s time they took some lessons from their airline neighbours over in New Zealand.
4. Air New Zealand’s Men in Black Safety Defenders
Whether you find this one entertaining or a little cringe-worthy, Air New Zealand’s Men in Black-inspired film is certainly memorable. Produced by Sony Pictures, the video sees New Zealand’s much-loved rugby team the All Blacks take passengers through the ins and outs of safety with the help of musician Stan Walker, American actor Rip Torn and Frank the Pug, because who doesn’t love pugs.
5. Singapore Airlines
While this isn’t the worst safety video we’ve ever seen, it’s not the best. Sure it’s full of pretty imagery and iconic Singaporean landmarks but it doesn’t do much to capture your attention. However, the calming voice over might help you fall asleep ahead of your flight, and that’s something.
