SAFTEY VIDEO WASNT PLAYED
I was on flight LX256, Swiss Airlines from Zurich to Tel Aviv on an A-330 sitting in (1A) and I was the only one in the first class cabin. The flight manager was a really sweet lady and she made sure everything I wanted was there. When we were taxiing I wondered when they are going to play the safety video, there wasn’t even a manual demonstration or anything at all. Immediately before the engines where on full throttle did I actually realize that they forgot to play it, and I didn’t want to take off my seatbelt and go to the front and tell her, (even thought putting the seatbelt was only mentioned briefly before taxiing). As soon as we were in the air, I called the flight attendant who took a while to come and told her “I don’t think that the safety video was played, correct me if I’m wrong”. I can see her in total shock and denial “Oh no !, I didn’t play it, did i ? ” I was like ” I don’t think so”. Then she asked ME “Do you think I should play it now?” I was like “Absolutely!!!!!!!!!!!” and thought that there should be no question in ensuring the safety of the passengers. She played the video about 15 min after takeoff after I told her, which I personally think that its the weirdest thing. Specially on this route there are a lot of first time travelers not everyone is an aviation geek like me. Even after flight no one noticed anything when I talked to the business class passengers. Throughout the flight I felt that she wanted to keep me quite so she was EXTREMELY nice!! She kept asking me how I was doing, like way many time to the point were it was annoying. And she even made my bed which is never the case on this short route. I don’t honestly know whats next to be honest ! I just wanted to share what happened and tell me what you think !
Many years ago I was on a United 747 going from LAX to ORD. We pushed, engines started and halfway down the taxiway I noticed the seatbelt sign wasn’t on. I notified a FA, she picked up the phone and ding, it was on. We’re all human.

Thats what im trying to say, that she is a human, I get it she might’ve forgotten about it. But I personally didnt really like it when some of the passengers after the flight wanted to report this to SWISS
