This Delta B-Roll Is Oddly Comforting

This Delta B-Roll Is Oddly Comforting
FlyerTalk

There’s a lot of upsetting coronavirus imagery roaming the internet these days, but Delta’s Aircraft fogging b-roll is not one of them.

There’s no sound, and it’s not very clear why it showed up in my inbox today (it was preceded by this official, more polished plane fogging PR video) but I’m glad it did. If you also need a break from coronavirus anxiety, check out this 90 seconds of visual ASMR below.

For the full effect, put it up fullscreen and absorb the healing power of Delta’s fogging gun.

The fog is actually a high-grade disinfectant designed to disinfect every surface it touches and is part of Delta’s 19-point checklist for cabin cleanliness. And, honestly, I wouldn’t mind having a personal fogging unit to take with me the next time I hit the road.

    In my travels to several South Pacific destinations in the 1970’s, arriving planes were fogged upon arrival before passengers were allowed to disembark, ostensibly to prevent any ingress of bacteria that may be harmful to the country’s agriculture. Perhaps it’s still done today, I haven’t been there in over 40 years.

    As long as the workers are as thorough when NOT being filmed – looks good!

    Doesn’t really matter what the substance is; short of pure bleach or some high strength acid, which obviously is not what they’re spraying, it is going to have only a light effect on covid-19. Even when using 1:50 bleach / sodium hypochlorite wipes, which are hospital grade, they need to leave the surface wet for three to four minutes to substantially reduce the virus causing covid-19. Spraying a light mist on exposed surfaces is clearly not going to render the surface wet to the point it remains that way for several minutes, and won’t substantially reduce the virus. It’s good they’re doing it, but passengers should still bring their own wipes and properly wipe their areas, and leave them wet for minutes, which of course makes the boarding process much longer. Airlines should increase flight time windows to allow passengers to properly sanitize their areas.

    So, are safety goggles required or (00:56 to 01:07) not?

    to be really effective, they need to have the bins open and tray tables down.

    Funny… they show crew bunks being sprayed, but I don’t see any cleaning upfront in DeltaOne or domestic first class cabin.
