Love it. I didn't realize that Michael Caine was still alive and even looking really well. I really enjoyed him and Robert Duvall in the movie, "Secondhand Lions."

Most important part of the video is even though hopefully, ​you will never have to use it, DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT OPEN YOUR LIFE VEST UNTIL YOU HAVE EXITED THE AIRCRAFT. Otherwise, you may drown while stuck to the ceiling.

I sincerely hope that entire thing isn't played on the plane prior to takeoff. As shown on the link, I find it unprofessional and waaaay longer than necessary!

I recall one particular Southwest flight where the stew was trying to be "cute" and was ad libbing things like "In the event of the loss of cabin pressure, an oxygen mask will drop from the compartment above your head. Please deposit 25 cents for the first two minutes". I certainly hope her tenure in the airline industry was brief. :mad:

(I too really enjoyed Second Hand Lions!) :D

Tommy, yes it is played on some routes (where the planes have video screens) before take off. I think you're in a minority as most people seem to like it and pay attention to it.

In retrospect, you're probably right Capt. I always half-listened to their spiel - knew it by heart - but generally just wanted to get back to work, sleep, reading, etc. For those who fly infrequently, this may be a good idea.

Southwest Airlines safety announcement. (Their too cheap to put videos on their planes.)
