Delta's 80's In-Flight Safety Video

As a tribute to Delta's first safety video premiering in the 80's, our latest version is 80's themed to continue our emphasis on safety in an engaging way. The safety video was filmed over 20 hours on a Delta 777 in Detroit. More than 100 people including 20 actors, 80 extras, six flight attendants and a pilot are featured in the video dressed in 80's fashions including authentic Delta flight attendant uniforms, leg warmers, hair scrunchies and neon colors. There are also cameos from some of our favorite 80's stars including basketball player Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who had a cameo in the movie "Airplane", as a Delta first officer. We also have our favorite '80s alien, Alf, and even an original member of Devo, Gerald Casale, safely storing the popular energy dome. We introduced safety videos designed to be constantly updated with fresh scenes to reward even the most frequent of frequent flyers for paying attention. Watch the full video here and be sure to let us know what you think!

Hilarious Southwest Flight Attendant San Francisco to Chicago on 6 17 14

Hilarious opening speech. I told him it was the most fun flight I ever took and thank you for going above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable and entertained. He threw a cocktail party 1/2 way through the flight as well. What a GEM he was! I will be removing any negative comments about this video. This flight attendant deserves praise and recognition!


Watch: This flight attendant has 'em rolling in the aisles!

Instead of hearing your flight attendant simply go through safety measures before takeoff -- fasten your seatbelts, turn off your mobile devices -- now, some are really trying to get your attention... by telling jokes! Watch as this Southwest flight attendant's safety speech turns to comedy sketch. For more information please visit http://www.hlntv.com/video/2014/04/17/soutwest-flight-attendant-comedy-show-swa
