Delta has just released a pretty epic safety video, though unfortunately there are no plans for it to be shown on Delta flights.
Delta’s “Fab Five” safety video
Delta has uploaded a never-before-seen safety video to YouTube, starring the “Fab Five” from “Queer Eye.” We’ve seen airlines get creative with safety videos, though this is creative in a whole new way.
The video is super cute, in my opinion, and that goes beyond just the “Queer Eye” cast, as a lot of other diversity is also highlighted in the video. I love the message at the beginning of the video, and how it’s presented:
Equality means opening our minds and hearts to new ideas from different perspectives. And when we do, we begin to see all that connects us, and understand that the world is much closer than it seems.
I also find the video to be catchy without being obnoxious, which is a combination that you don’t often find in airline safety videos. You can watch the video for yourself below.
Unfortunately you won’t actually see this on a Delta flight, though. Rather Delta is showing its coronavirus-focused safety video, with employees masked up, coronavirus precautions explained, etc.
Why Delta’s “Queer Eye” safety video didn’t make it onboard
Delta’s “Queer Eye” safety video was filmed pre-pandemic, and the intent was for it to be shown on flights around this time. That’s because Delta partnered with “Queer Eye” for an episode of the popular show, which ended up premiering on Netflix’s YouTube channel yesterday.
The safety video was part of the collaboration and the video was filmed in advance, though unfortunately the pandemic got in the way of this ever being used. Nonetheless Delta still released the safety video online, and then you can watch the Delta “Queer Eye” episode either on YouTube or on Delta’s inflight entertainment system.
While you won’t see it on a Delta flight anytime soon, a new “Queer Eye” themed Delta safety video has been unveiled, featuring the “Fab Five.” I think the video is cute and creative. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, the video was never shown onboard flights — that’s because Delta is instead showing a coronavirus safety video.
