Tired of boring airline safety demonstrations? You’re not alone. Most passengers (myself included) ignore the flight attendants and bury their heads in the in-flight magazines. But these fine flight attendants at Cebu Pacific Airlines have a new tactic to capture passengers’ attention. As if a trip to the Philippines wasn’t enough, passengers get a little(Amazon link) Lady Gaga and Katy Perry dance routine to help kick off their trip.
Airlines Get Creative With Ways To Make Passengers Pay Attention To Airline Safety Demonstrations
Unfortunately most passengers never pay attention to the airline safety demonstrations. Blame it on our short attention spans. It must be insulting and obnoxious to have all eyes lower to magazines or cell phones the minute those seat belt and oxygen mask props make an appearance.
It must make flight attendants want to throw those stupid buckles at us. Or mutter something about karma. They never seem especially pleased to be going through the motions unappreciated. They probably wish a pre-recorded flight attendant on a TV screen did the dirty work.
The Dancing Flight Attendants Of Cebu Pacific Airlines
How can you not pay attention to the beautiful dancing ladies at Cebu Pacific Airlines? Just watch the video. These cute flight attendants have definitely captured the attention of their passengers.
But I have to say I’m slightly disappointed in audience reaction. Am I wrong or do these ladies deserve a standing ovation? Their professionalism rivals another Grammy-worthy act: the flight attendant rapper who tore it up last year. It ain’t easy keeping it original and fun up in the friendly skies. And these aren’t your average amateur comedians highjacking your attention with a microphone and bad jokes. These are dazzling professionals who deserve a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
