More than a Hobbit for Safety: Air New Zealand Reminds us how to don our Mae West

Count on David Flynn from Australian Business Traveller Magazine to bring us the hottest stories this winter (or more accurately summer); featuring an “inside look” at a sizzling new Safety Video from Air New Zealand.  Read his superb article for the all the scoop and a lovely collection of all the recent Safety Videos Air New Zealand has contributed to aviation safety.

This is another contender for this year’s still unnamed Safety Video Awards.  Have you thought of a name yet?  I’m still working on it.  Though, now I’m thinking the “Westies” might be nice.

For anyone who doesn’t already know, a Mae West is a life vest.  Cockney rhyme for this essential safety equipment because, well, nature was good to her:

Mae West on the Beach

Hello, Sports Illustrated Girls!  You look lovely and make safety fun.  But give Mae her props.  She did it first.

Fly Air New Zealand to “come up and see [them] sometime.”

Great video @FlyAirNZ!  Congratulations for their (first) entry in to this year’s Safety Video Awards.  I’m sure they’ll have more for us as the year progresses.

So what do you think?  Will it be the Westies?  The GSA’s (Golden Seatbelt Awards), as nominated by reader Jeff Solomon?  Or have you come up with something better?

Go on–be a sport–submit your suggestions below!
