Airplane Security Videos for Traveling Families
Airplane Security Videos are helpful and sometimes great fun!
Airplane security presentations have been around from the beginning of air travel. I’m pretty sure that even the Wright brothers had a security speech – surely even something simply like, ‘Hold on, here we go!” Since then….only 2.7% of all travelers have heard the speech. Ok, I made that number up, but… Come on, really…when was the last time you watched the airplane security videos or listened to the flight attendant give the security speech? And rarer still…..did you pay attention? I think a lot of people think the security information is such old news that they don’t even listen anymore. The airlines understand this and are becoming extremely creative to make the security information entertaining so you will PAY ATTENTION. Check out these fun examples!

As clever as these airplane security videos are and kudos to those that make them….
clearly people do not watch and listen. How do I know?
Thursday, September 10, a British Airways jet had to be evacuated on the runway in Las Vegas. Smoke billows out and passengers stroll away WITH THEIR LUGGAGE. These people stopped to get their luggage when faced with leaving an burning airplane. Read the full article in The Independent .
Um….what part of …the plane is on fire and you need to leave means”struggle to get your stuff out of the overhead bins and out from under the seat while others WAIT” to you? What planet do you live on? I would be beside myself angry with someone who was casually getting their luggage while my CHILDREN were waiting to exit a BURNING aircraft. Don’t these people watch movies? You know the kind of movies where something like a car or a plane is on fire and then EXPLODES? See? Tom Cruise knows to RUN!
So, a refresher on airplane safety from a MOM’s point of view.
In the unlikely case of the need to evacuate an airplane:
- GET UP.
- CALMLY LEAVE the airplane while listening carefully to the flight crew.
- LEAVE the stuff behind. You realize it is just stuff right? That bag? It doesn’t even know you exist!!
Anything you do to delay departure from the airline puts everyone else at risk. The plane really could explode and people can die from smoke inhalation so every second counts. So, those of you who think bags are important, please remain seated until the smart people can get off the plane towards safety before you retrieve your “important” bag. Do not selfishly risk the lives of everyone on board over luggage.
Seriously *sigh* isn’t it crazy to have to have this conversation? I’d love to hear from YOU!
