Airlines have been investing a lot in safety videos in order to catch the attention of passengers. Some use animated cartoons, some use actors with different themes, some combine tourism, and all other gimmicks just to make sure passengers keep their eyes and attention glued on the safety video. This is a very essential part in the flight and should never be taken for granted.
Japan Airlines did something unique. In an animated safety video, they showed the consequences of disobeying safety instructions, especially the taking of hand carry luggage during an emergency evacuation.
In a press statement, Japan Airlines said “The safety video highlights potential risks inside the cabin, as well as providing key directives during an evacuation of the aircraft. The program includes realistic scenarios to describe situations that may occur if appropriate action is not taken by the passengers during a flight and in an emergency."
Basically, the video will show important parts in a safety demo like putting on seatbelts, opening life vest, brace for impact position, where to find exits, etc.
What makes this safety video unique is they showed what the consequences are when we do not follow them. Its just like buying cigarette nowadays, there are graphic pictures showing the consequences of smoking.
Do you think it is high time that airlines do include the consequences of not obeying instructions in safety videos and cards?
