No, it is you who is pathetic; get a life.
This is sweet and appropriate. It grabs and holds the attention.
Gentlemen...gentlemen! Steady on there chaps. It's not really jolly cricket to be resorting to denigrating terms such as: "it is you who is pathetic; get a life." That is stroppy teenage stuff surely? I couldn't care less about who acts the roles; as long as it is accurate and approved by the CAA; or their designated person. Is it?
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion as this is a Forum domain. Perhaps the old civil term would be more appropriate: "I agree to disagree!" would be still useful? And, I add, if you suggest that I too am 'pathetic' and should 'get a life', well I might point out that I was flying aeroplanes for a living for a very long time; and investigating air accidents to boot; forsooth! Oh; by the way, I am. for my sins, a Moderator with this site.
Merrie cheers chaps.
ummm...where's the video?
This is so very very cute and really well done.The little adults are wonderful and no wonder they had the full attention of everyone!Well done and KUDOS to the Thompson Airways!
May I politely request that you look at the video again? I believe that they aren't "using" children to promote the airline. It is my conviction that they are PROMOTING SAFETY material that some adults DON'T listen to when it comes from another adult.
PLEASE DO NOT PLAY WITH AIRLINE SAFETY!IT CAN SAFE YOUR LIFES!
I'm sure I can see another seat buckle a little below and right of 'Teddy's' belt. I'm sure they wouldn't make such an obvious mistake, rendering the entire message flawed.
I'm a retired Delta 767-400 Captain and this was as professional as it gets. On my retirement flight from ATL to DFW my youngest daughter (11 years old) make all the PA's because the Flight Attendants asked her to do them. She also did a very professional job and all the passengers on my full 767-400 loved it. I didn't know they were going to ask her until one of the F/A called and told us to listen to the PA's. Not a single passenger got off until I left the cockpit and make my way back to the door being used to deplane. This PA would get everyone's attention and that's what they are supposed to do. This young lady did a great job and covered every single important point. Most people do not pay attention to the PA's because they are Boring.
Yep, I noticed this too (teddy belted with child, instead of with attached loop/child harness) as potentially misleading. Agree, it should be fixed. Well done for family holiday clientele.
If a passenger is too clueless to know this, they deserve the consequences of their actions! Maybe it would be safer for them to walk to their destination and shouldn't be flying in the first place.
Having just seen the safety video, may I add my congrats to Thomson for the excellent way of presenting for what is to many passengers the time to open their paper and ignore what is being said. It is a sad reflection, but many people try to show that they are seasoned travellers by doing just that. If only they realised that you do not get two attempts at a real emergency.
From a retired Thomson Captain..
I think its a great way for trying to really get a hold of people's attention during the cabin crew briefing to the passengers,
WE all know how sometimes even ourselves do not pay attention to those messages, but we got to realize how
IMPORTANT they are...!
just my opinion....
take care and behave...!
Why is there always a moron (***) that always complains, that is never happy or always has a negative thing to say. This video is absolutely awesome. If you don't have anything positive to write why don't you go and help your wife vaccuum or mop the floor or something.
I can confirm that this meets all safety requirements. The strict no smoking policy is very clearly identified by a PA that is made by the cabin manager on the flight preceding the video. In all honesty, do you really think that a company as large as Thomson would forget to dot the legal "I"s and "T"s before releasing this?
You just don't get it , do you? You must be a yankee, they think they know EVERYTHING!!!!
Philippines Airlines put their safety brief to music and the flight attendants sang and danced the words/actions. Really did a great job of it. I did, however, enjoy the kids' rendition and thought it to be attention-getting, just what the airline wanted. Congratulations!
Likely the most important criteria for a safe airline is the amount of
fatalities the airline has over a period of recent years. This may be
the best way to judge the record of maintenance but also of personnel,
including pilots and engineers.

I am a flight attendant on Thomson. It always gets the passenger's attention and makes them smile.
I fly a lot and always drops the book,newspaper magazine and listen or watch the safety announcement and check where my emegency exit is plus the "alternate" just in case the first one is blocked or cannot open. I then do a mental run to make sure it is embedded in my mind.
Being the survivor of two incidents while I was in the Air Force makes it even more compelling to assure myself where I will be headed if an incident should happen.
As for the boring stuff, all airlines should look at Thomson,s Airways announcement ( 5stars for making it more interesting) and take a look at catching the attention of the bored nonchalant passengers.
