Delta's Newest In-Flight Safety Video Will Put You in the Holiday Spirit
In case you’ve forgotten to flip the pages on your puppies and kitties calendar it’s already October, and in fact next week is Halloween. That means November—and apparently the start of the holiday season—is just about a week away. We can’t fight it and say it’s too soon to start talking about Santa and his elves, so we just say congratulations to Delta for being the first in the industry to officially welcome the holiday season—even if it’s October.
Delta just revealed a revamped in-flight safety video building off their previous versions, as they wanted something to welcome one and all during the busy travel season that is just weeks ahead. The video runs almost five minutes, and is a great distraction as you’re enjoying your morning coffee and ignoring the messages arriving within your inbox.
The background music has a distinct holiday feel, and the nutcracker in the aisle placing his hat in the overhead bin might have just made us smile. We just wonder how the guy placing his wrapped Christmas present under the seat in front of him got through security—you’re supposed to leave them unwrapped for the TSA, no?
Anyway, there’s dreidels, Christmas lights, ugly sweaters, and a gingerbread man looking for a new home—thanks to the in-flight WiFi. We’re just going to say it, we love this and it’s awesome. There’s way more little holiday hints here and there throughout the video, so we won’t ruin any potential surprises.
Thanks for keeping us safe and entertained Delta—and happy holidays and Merry Christmas! Even if it is just the end of October!
