Virgin America's Safety Video Tops 7.8 Million Views

A flight safety video that people want to watch? Virgin America has surpassed Delta's and other creative in-flight videos by producing a fun, catchy musical.

What strikes me about this and all flight safety videos is the requirement to show us how to put on a seat belt. The video pokes fun ("For the .001 percent of you who have never operated a seat belt before..."), but apparently the FAA or whatever agency regulates these issues won't relent.

Discussion Starters:

  • Look at Delta's and other airlines' safety videos. Which are best and why?
  • What, if any, downsides do you see of showing Virgin's video on a flight?
