Video Podcast: Is Qantas’ new safety video really that bad?

written by Adam Thorn | January 31, 2024

This week, Qantas unveiled a flash new safety video that took in destinations as varied as Litchfield National Park and Lapland.

The problem is not one bit of it was filmed in an actual aircraft.

This week, the team discuss whether it’s too smart for its own good, endangering safety, or whether the Flying Kangaroo’s critics are more interested in holding a grudge.

Plus, will Western Sydney Airport finally break the monopoly of monopoly airports and bring competition to the country’s domestic aviation sector?

    It’s a great video, much better than the usual boring video that no one watches.

    It does seem way too wishy washy and disconnected from reality. You want to see the actual seats and the actual face masks in context. Sometimes direct communication is better. “Ladies and gentlemen, in the interests of your safety, we MUST have your attention.” That’s a direct quote from TAA BTW. I have never forgotten it.
