Travel Tip Tuesday for October 25, 2011
This is Kerwin with Cruisinaltitude.com and welcome to another episode of Travel Tip Tuesday.
Today, we are going to be talking about flight attendant safety, actually, the safety videos you watch on the airplane.
Now, here is what I notice when I fly, people just don’t watch the video.
Now, this is akin to…let’s say you go to a party or something; someone comes up to you; says hello to you and immediately you stop looking at them or you stop listening to them. Well that’s kind of what it is when the flight attendant is standing in front of the cabin, the video is playing, or if there’s no video she’s doing or he’s doing his demo and no one watches.
I see people they look at their newspapers, they read a book, they’re fidgeting with stuff, its only 5 minutes or so folks, take the time to watch the safety video folks. This could be the difference between life and death in case something happens.
It even gets me when people who are siting in the exit row who said, “I’m ready willing and able to assist in case of an emergency,” they’re not even watching the video. Which is kind of interesting right, you figure they should say that you should move from that seat since they are not watching the video.
So, when you fly, please watch the safety video, please pay attention, it could just mean the difference between life and death for you.
The funny thing about the safety videos is that its something you watch and hope that you never ever need it.
I’ve had my share of scares; we had a flight once that had an emergency landing and then everybody paid attention when the flight attendant came to the front and said here’s what we need to do here’s the brace position, which thankfully we didn’t need.
But you know you don’t have to wait for something like that to occur just when the safety video starts, just pay attention.
This is Kerwin with Cruisinaltitude.com and another Travel Tip Tuesday, have a great flight.
