How Many Times Have You Listened to an Airline's Safety Presentation?

If you fly a lot (or even if you only fly infrequently), you've probably listened to those seat belt, oxygen mask, smoking, etc., instructions so much that you tend to give those presentations less than your full attention. I fly Southwest when I can, and they usually try to liven things up a bit with humor. Apparently, United has decided to take this a step further with this somewhat entertaining and informative video. I do like the fact that for the first time I actually got to see the flotation device instructions in action, something that isn't possible in anything other than a video.

And, of course, you get the wonderful Gershwin "Rhapsody in Blue" music that United has been using as their theme since 1987.

I wonder if these types of video presentations will become a trend, since they can be changed frequently in order to hold a passenger's attention. 

Have a great day!
