You are completely correct--the finger waging "no smoking" is the highlight of the video^--all four and a half minutes of it.:

Overall, I like it more than the version we've been watching--or more accurately, trying to avoid watching.

Also, yes the main FA has HUGE lips. I do like it when she wags her finger though with the 'no smoking', haha! Nice work Delta!

Why the PA mic?

At the very beginning WHY, OH WHY, is the pilot speaking into a PA mic? That would make sense if they showed him facing forward like normal when a pilot makes and announcement...but if he is going to be turned around and staring into the camera ANYWAYS.....why have the mic in his hand? I hope when DL pilots make announcements on flights they don't randomly turn around and face the back of the cockpit!!! OTHERWSE I really like this video, cute and interesting without being TOO cute...

Good: Visual demonstrations of life jacket use.

Bad: Spending at least three minutes trying to figure out if Lips is pretty or not; finally decided no. Why didn't they go with a more "universal" looking girl of the type that ad agencies love so much?

I prefer UA's video - everyone seems so sincere. I wish I could say that about the rest of UA.

Then there's ANA's video (though this version is a little old):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R2GNIC2bfU

You get the impression that nothing could possibly go wrong.

Most of all, I can never get over the 50-year old's voice coming out of the 20-something FA's mouth.

I think DL should have hired an English speaking NH FA to be the "face" of the new safety video. They'd certainly have my attention.

Not bad. But I like the Virgin America and Virgin Atlantic safety videos much more.

I like this one - but will miss the music from the 2006 version.

No kidding! Those lips are flapping in the wind....could use some better lipstick too.

Ya and what on earth is up with mr. clean in the life vest??!?!?

I must say, I like the previous video way better.

This is the correct response to this video. ^^^

I feel like I have watched a rap video, they did time the words and beat really well. I want to see the live vest guy do the soulja boy.

Seriously... I've done a fair bit of flying in the exit row and have yet to wind up sitting next to anyone that good looking. Same thing goes with F. I love the seat and the service, but I tend to watch in envy as some of the Y pax go by


According to the Delta blog, everyone on there (well, except the kid shown during the oxygen mask bit, ha) is an employee...I wonder where she works...?
Yeah, I was wondering that myself.

They probably wanted to find a way to get people to watch the video. Easy... put a hot gal at the beginning and all the men on the plane will be glued to the TV waiting to see if she shows up again

It kinda reminds me of the Delta TV music/entertainment segment from early 2007 that featured some hot pop singer dancing around wearing very little clothes. I was sitting near the back of a 752 on one flight and couldn't help but notice that just about every pair of male eyes (including my own) would look up every time she was on the screen.

I don't care what you say about her lips... "Red" (that is my new name for her) is hot and did a good job. Makes me wanna light up on my next flight in hopes that she will come wag her finger at me.

where'd the accent go?

If you just listen to the video, try closing your eyes, at the beginning the FA's accent is noticeable, especially when she says "phone" but by the end of the video the accent is pretty much all gone...

Those 2 along with the Air France and Thai Airways are among my favorites on Youtube!

Can't we come up with something better to call her?

Here are some:

Deltangelina
Delta Jolie

OR

D'angelina where the "D" stands for Delta -Pronounced "DEE angelina"

O.K. the more I say it outloud the more I like it... Hm...does this forum have polls?

HAHAHA The video is entertaining and "fresh" but I thought delta could of toned it down some. I cna see how it would be very annoying after my 2nd flight.
