The safety vidoes are subtitled on NZ flights. So that's not really a valid excuse (unless you don't know how to read English!)

Though with the rap one the sub titles didn't match what was being said. Accessibility guidelines generally say when the language is the same the sub titles should be verbatim, not a simplified, etc. As this makes it difficult for partially deaf people as it is confusing hearing one thing & reading another. Or lip reading & not having the subtitle match.

The pax were sitting in 1abc not an overwing exit. FA2 was given the manual demo on the a320d because the FAP at the front doesn't display the video. The crew did everything right according to CAA regulations. Not only will she be in trouble for being on the phone but will receive a fine for not following crew instructions.

I wonder how it would play out in the media if someone was removed from a flight for refusing to watch "It's a Kiwi Safety" rap safety video.

The same as it wasn't just not watching. But ignoring the cabin crew, sticking their fingers in their ears when the cabin crew were trying to talk to them.

Look, rules are rules despite the video you may dislike - just be respectful. The pax were given three warnings which is one more than usual. You get a warning, then you're delivered a final warning card telling you if you don't comply then the law is in the hands of the police/CAA. The idiots haven't realised the cost to the airline for their behaviour. There were a bunch of pax that missed their tight connecting flight because of the delay that was caused.
