There have been many incidents in the US about unruly passengers. You should do a video about that. And also is it true that to disobey a flight crew member is a Federal offense? I was on an international flight and my seat was in the middle of the plane. There wasn't any turbulence but the seatbelt light was on. Every time the toilet became vacant someone immediately got up and occupied it. After over an hour of this I finally stood outside the toilet and waited. About a minute later a flight attendant came and told me to take my seat. I explained that I had been waiting for over an hour. He replied that if I didn't sit down he would have me arrested when we landed. I was pissed, pun intended. And I never ever fly that airline! (Delta).

I was an 8 year old child with my then 6 hear old brother, my mother and father who was coming back to the UK after a 4 month stint as an English translator in China on British Airways Flight 38. You know the story. The flight we were on specatularly crash landed at Heathrow. I hit my head on the seat in front of me and sustained a serious concussion and a very nasty gash to my forehead. I still bear the scar from the crash. Surprisingly its only noticable if i point out where the scar is. Theres a small patch of scar tissue in the middle of my forehead from the crash. Captain Burkhill and his flight crew saved evryone on that Boeing 777 by gliding that plane to within the boundaries of Heathrow

The main thing that I thought was missing from the original video, and that I was hoping to hear you say more strongly in reaction, is that yes, there's a reason the flight attendants face backward (which is actually vastly superior in an actual crash because of the lower risk of neck injuries) and have real harnesses, and that is that *they* are the ones who are going to save your life both before and after the pilot saves it by getting you on the ground, and that therefore, the other thing you need to prepare yourself for, is to LISTEN to them and OBEY their instructions in a quick and orderly manner.

I wish that the people around me would be quiet while the briefing is happening. On the rare occasions I have flown (total 10 flights in my life) I am always in a different plane than I have been in before. It may be same old stuff to frequent fliers, but there are people like me who don't know the information that the chatterers are talking over!

I take safety VERY serious - be it for road vehicles, boats or aircraft. I do not appreciate channels that mock safety measures. The video that is being critiqued here is just a detailed mockery of the safety measures everyone should be listening to.

Just the fact that it was presented in an entertaining way kept my attention and actually made me think a little more than the standard safety talk. Although this would be a bit inappropriate to actually use on real flights, I think the airlines should consider implementing some of his approach. The safety talks/videos are not helpful to anyone if there are those who can't be bothered with paying attention to it. As someone who wasn't thrilled about flying, I found talking with professionals who explained turbulence and other scary incidents that could potentially happen really helped me. Learning what all can go wrong without disabling the pilot's ability to land the plane safely also helped. I wish they'd provide a little pamphlet that explains more about potential issues and how they are responded to so passengers would know what to expect should there be an issue that may seem much scarier than it actually is. Now, the scariest thing to me when flying is knowing that too many people don't pay attention to the safety talk and they will be the most likely ones to panic if that rare situation were to happen. Those people become the biggest safety threat in my opinion.

I just binge watched a couple dozen plane crash documentaries, and all it did is make me feel safer. Every crash is another leap towards lowering risk. My dad was an aircraft mechanic in the Airforce, and my sister currently is, which I suppose helps in my perspective. My father had a single crash on his record, that after extensive investigation, turned out to not be his fault. It's actually a pretty infamous incident, it was caused by pilot error and weather. It's infamous because the pilot was set to retire after that flight, and it happened on the Superstition Mountains in Arizona. If you can't tell by the name of that place, it ended up contributing to the local superstitions.

What the video says about life vests is that if you are in the ocean, a shark or cold will kill you before someone can find you. In the water finding people is very very difficult too. So it s pretty useless. It can be useful in easy situations for people unable to swim. My opinion.

I am a retired airline pilot and can possibly make an aviation comment with a little knowledge of aviation. Next time you see any video of an inflight event and the masks are being used notice that almost everyone is not wearing the mask correctly. People do not listen to or watch the video. With the common use of masks now days everywhere I wonder if more people will use the O2 mask properly when they are deployed and "Put the Mask over Your NOSE and MOUTH and breath normally". :) The part about the barely edible food was a good description of the food on my airline.

The other oddly reassuring fact that pilots will sometimes reveal is that emergency situations arise frequently but the pilots and crew are carefully trained to deal with them . That is the main reason that the stats are so favorable. Thanks for this wonderful video. I hate to fly and you made me feel better!

I think the point of it all is to kinda tounge in cheek but also shock idiots into actually paying attention. Its just a different although snarky way of teaching. Ive been in an aircraft evac. No slides deployed but emergency and Idiots, absolute idiots stopped everyone to get overhead luggage. I mean i always carry my passport and phone etc in a thin over neck bag so it was on me without thinking. But idiots were trying to get their luggage out. Super frustrating. Also agree with the fact the jump seats arent necessarily safer. They are actually flawed due to the folding. But i do remember seeing a study that sitting backwards to the direction of travel and lifting up your legs was best as you wouldnt smash your legs on a crash (thats if the seat absorbs the impact and doesnt come thru your body. I also managed to acquire a 747 life vest and part of me taking it meant it had to be inflated. Man those things are loud from a little brass coloured cylinder and tight. 1000% agree with the masks being number one priority. If they drop and you have to put them on. Drop everything, no seatbelt, doesnt matter get the mask on then deal with stuff. People sometimes will become delirious drowsy and drunk before just passing out.

It may be a bit too much, but I think that locating at least one emergency exit every time you enter a new environment should be one of those little things that should be an habit. They are usually thoroughly signaled so you should just make a mental note on where they are and where to turn to reach them, but it may save you in situations like fire or earthquake, where your brain will probably go in flight mode and will probably be too busy being panicked to see the little green "EXIT" sign.

Forgive me if this has been asked before, but I'm not going to read 2,266 comments to see if it's here. If passengers panic in an emergency and try to unlock their seatbelts by pushing a nonexistent button as they are used to doing in their cars, why not make airline seatbelts that open with a button instead of a latch?

I almost always pay attention to the safety briefing by the cabin crew.. If only out of respect. I can understand some frequent flyers (like me) get bored with it though.. But yeah, it's about the reason for doing this or that.. You need to think straight in a crisis situation. Once, I saw a car back up to me and i saw the driver didn't see me. I pressed my steering wheel, expecting to hear a signal from my car, but instead I heard nothing.. I pressed and pressed harder and more stressed as the other car approached. Of course I was pressing on my airbag and the horn button was beside it.. The other driver slightly damaged my license plate holder.. He may have gotten a scratch on the paint. So we got lucky there.. But the point is you won't be able to think straight in a crisis situation.. But anyway, speaking of frequent flying.. God, I miss it.. The cramped seat, the impossible sleeping position, the selection of boring movies on the entertainment system, the grumpy cabin crew.. Other passengers spilling tomato juice all over you (this happened to me once!).. But racing through the sky at 800-900 kmph in an office where you can enjoy a sunset or sunrise above the clouds, while you casually adjust the heading on the autopilot and confirm, "Heading 010, speedbird 47 heavy" Why oh why did I become a software developer?? 😭😜

I was on an AA DC-10 once at cruising altitude when we lost pressurization and the oxy masks came down. There was no panic. You have 45 Seconds before you will lose consciousness. First, your fingers and toes will start tingling just before. The 4 flight attendants were in the aisles without masks helping the other pax and they passed out simultaneously at the 45 second mark. Went down like a ton of bricks. Oddly, there is no apparent difference between breathing normal air and breathing air without oxy, and breathing through a mask. All you smell is an odd slightly acrid smell, which I think was the absence of oxygen. The dive down to 10,000 feet was VERY steep. The crew handled it very professionally. Sadly, the flight attendants suffered some injuries when they passed out and hit the arm rests. Broken glasses, broken noses, sprained shoulders etc. don’t delay with the oxy, but you will have adequate time.

I fly on Aeroflot from LAX to Moscow all the time. What I find amazing is (90+%) off Russians after the wheels come off the gourd you can hear the clicks of them removing their seat-belts and the same on landing when wheels touch the ground. Also rarely in flight do the have their seat-belts on. Why its important to keep your seat belt on anytime ur in your seat. Because I don't want ur body weight, traveling at 485 mph impacting on me.

I watched this video (the "Honest"...) a few days ago and loved it ! Direct question : "honest" version or "usual" version - which would be better in terms of usefulness & effectiveness ? Also : the video references the extreme rarity of life-jackets being useful in life-saving .....sad truth is most water/plane interfaces are rather more severe than 1970 , 96 or Hudson River . Frankly I'd be happy with hard-hitting "honest" type version....it might keep the attention of those that remain on their phones etc . If everyone knew their go-to emergency-exit then that would surely help in the event.....

Amusing and cool. Particularly enjoyed your critical analysis of that pilot's satirical viral audiovisual. On thin air in places with the comments, but serves a purpose to makes us all think more. You completed that with your excellent critique, when you add the context as you did; there can be no doubt that all those viewers are safer as a result of this production You made me have a product lightbulb moment. I thoought of a product idea for Mentour of electronic aircraft sounds on App Store? Not sure if @apple allow apps to contain sound downloads for reminders and alarms and install them, but might perhaps interest others if they did. It was the final part of this that gave me that idea because you used the 'notification' sound in the video! One for future perhaps. Perhaps youve been asked already.

"Anyway, please sit back and relax while we take forever to serve you a drink and a barely edible meal, and then leave the tray on your table making it nearly impossible for you to squeeze out of the chair and get to the toilet" - Yes, I recognize that, specially the latter bit. The "barely edible meal" bit depends on the airline, I must say that I have had some quite decent meals in some flights.

I was talking to a Mortician at a funeral home . We were talking about how much people rush anymore. I don't rush anymore! Why I asked him. He then told me this story . He was in the US Air Force. He had been a mortician in the Vietnam war. He was rushing to get into a plane at O'Hare Chicago May 25,1979. He got into an argument with an airline employee. I have to get on that plane he insisted. Sure, the plane is pulling away from the gate. There is no way you can get on that plane. It was Flight 191/ DC-10. The plane took off, lost it's engine,it actually flew over the wing of the jet it crashed shortly killing all on board! It also killed a few people on the ground. He said " I went white, she went white." "You weren't supposed to be on that plane Sir!" That's why he never rushes anymore!

That's exactly the point: most people can't take in the recommendations as they are not explained to them. For example, most people have no idea THAT the lids need to be open during takeoff and landing, and if they are told so, they don't know why. It is paramount in education and in conveying messages to explain a bit the motivation of what one is going to say - that is just what that captain is doing (and what is actually really often missing in the safety briefing videos); and what he is doing too, is to get the attention of the passengers, and he obviously knows how to do that. I bet if that flight had had an accident, that would have been the best prepared set of passengers ever - if they would have had the decency to actually really leave their luggage behind. That last part will likely only ever be solved, if the overhead bins lock when pressing the evac alert button and people are informed that this will happen in the briefing.

Take off your tinfoil hat. Just like he said there's no official "safest seat" because it all depends on what sort of accident you're in. More often than not survivors are scattered thought the entire plane. The TIME, one of the publications that counts these numbers to that forms the "safest seat" statistics, even admits that when consulting experts they conclude that there's no "safest seat" despite a slight lean on the statistics. It's all circumstantial.

Most fatal aircraft accidents happen in the last second, now that event is probably preceded by many minutes of events that are building toward that final second, sometimes it’s been days, weeks, months, or even years of events building toward that last fatal second. This of course is the same for almost all accidents not just aircraft. On a positive note aircraft is still the safest because because of the hazards of flying high and fast causes the people in charge to do extra things to try to keep ahead of accidents that are preventable with proper maintenance procedures. I’m a pilot so aircraft don’t frighten me but I respect the dangers inherent in being high and fast.

I would prefer to not interfere with the drink cart. However, on some flights it is just impossible for me to sit normally. If the seats are so close that my knees touch the seat in front of me and I even have to spread the legs a little to fit in there, then I can sometimes feel my legs already getting numb during Taxi. There is no other way than putting my legs into the alley. That is not the case on all flights. On some flights the spacing between the seats is sufficient, but on some flights the spacing is made for dwarfs. We're just talking about a few centimeters here. I'm 1,8m tall, which is quite average, but some airlines apparently don't plan for average males...

In some ways I have to agree with both you and the 'Honest safety video' and what that tells me is that the cool AV program we get may well be too many bells and whistles and not enough of the 'whys' they are telling you what they are. I actually think that the on board safety video could be a little bit of both. I forget what airline I flew with one time, in what my Dad used to call a 'puddle jumper' which was pretty much a short flight from on study to the next in the mid west US. They actually did the usual but they also added in a lot of the 'why we are telling you this' and actually I noticed that once people started hearing things like the whys and other explanations they started paying more attention. Yeah, admittedly some of it may have actually made some of the nervous flyers more nervous, but even the jaded constant flyers were getting their heads out of laptops and craning there heads to watch the flight attendant and pay attention. It was, at the start, a nice introduction telling us how actually safe flying was, but how, in the event of a problem, what we did based on what we had been told cold make a huge difference in what side of the stats we fell on. Someone starts a briefing like that you suddenly starting to think maybe they can tell you something important and its not just a way to entertain you while the pilots finish up their prefight. It was the first time I ever had an airline point out that the seatbelts worked differently than your car seatbelts, and yes, while you intellectually knew that - reminding you that if you were napping and the plane made and emergency landing your muscle memory was going to look for a button, not to pull on the hinged plate to get that seatbelt open. They also did the life vest instruction (we were flying over the great lakes and they mentioned that if we had to land other than an airport it might be that water would be safer), and they pointed out things like not standing up in the aisle to try and search under the seat for the vest and not to stand around blocking people trying to put it on but to grab it, get out of the plane and then put it on in teh water if you had to as staying in the plane or blocking others while figuring out straps and so on was not going to get everyone off the plane before it sank. I have sat through many a commercial flight safety briefing where they say to be familiar with the exits, but not how or why, but on this flight they were very clear in the briefing that you should know how many rows you are from the nearest exit from you both front and back because - as this Captain said, in smoke or underwater you probably will no longer see the exits. It was the first time I ever counted the rows to the exit from where I sat, but definitely remembered that and have since. Anyway I guess what I am saying is that yes, the nice customer acceptable ad agency made video is probably great for focus groups who are not flying ,but for the real travelers maybe it would help to have safety briefing somewhere between the 'Honest' one and the 'Ad Agency one'. Maybe if it was more clear as to why the airline is telling you these things and what could happen, perhaps people would listen and maybe be a great deal safer in the air, or if they suddenly hit the ground.

What about putting in portable mics questioning the passengers what to do in the safty instructions to get their attention. The question when to inflate the life west should be kind of an hilarious but serious one with passengers just imagining that they can t leave because they inflated to early.. better than not listening and die in fear in a real emergency situation.. What about a quiz about flight safty and aviation in general for passengers. Eg you can print out a quiz form with your booking or send an online form after booking a flight and win perhaps prices. Important to show a correction or the right answers afterwards..

I never understood why the seats are not facing backwards It would be so much safer. At least it seems like it would be. Not only that, offering 4point restraints would be nice , too.

Thousands of people get injured per year because the overhead compartments come open ... Why haven't they installed better locking mechanisms yet?

Regarding overhead luggage in an emergency: This is symptomatic of airlines not repatriating luggage to passengers, but instead offloading the liability to insurance companies. When you evacuate, your carry on is gone and you will never see it again. That must change, and very publicly change, in order to change this behavior. Corporations themselves need to be urged by law, not by economics to make this right. People have carry on luggage to carry items far too valuable to be trusted as packed luggage.

Hi... he is right about not putting on your life vest to early.... if the plane is open to the water you could be come a cork trapped at the wrong end of a sinking plane ...

This narrator obviously knows his stuff but tongue in cheek references seem to be taken literally by him. Perhaps it is a cultural bent he has. IE when he remarks in the negative to the use of swear words in order to shock and add emphasis to a point. It only works once in a narration and the source video narrator does just that, employing swearing just the once. Mentour Pilot however appears to only see that there are swear words and treats their inclusion as a mistake. On the subject that the swear words addressed, I have seen video (I think in Russia) where people were exiting a burning plane and most of those who first exited the plane and survived were clutching their carry on luggage! A great many did not get out to survive and their bodies were later found in the aisle. All those selfish idiots who used up the few precious moments they all had, to remove their carry on stuff from the bins basically killed the passengers who were behind the last survivor to exit. It's awful and it deserves to be told as a cautionary tale.

I enjoy some of the recent silly safety talks out in the media - the cabin crew trying to get passengers to actually listen, using wit. Similar to this, but shorter. Kind of like a good grade school teacher does.

I do think that the tone of the original video might make me want to get off the plane. A nervous flyer doesn’t want to think of an upside down cabin filled with smoke. But when cabin crew check everyone is seatbelted in they might want to check that people can actually undo them, especially kids and more vulnerable flyers. I forget which accident video it was cos I’ve binge watched loads in the last day or two, but a little girl couldn’t get her seat belt off in a smoke-filled cabin. A lady saw that and went back to help her, and lost her life, as did the girl. So somehow or other, cabin crew should really be drawing passengers’ attention to the importance of knowing how to undo them. Maybe the safety talks have become too repetitive so even the people who are listening are t really listening. So I applaud the intention behind the original video, but think it will trigger many sensitive people.

Just a bit of commissary agreement here. I'm an over the road truck driver in the US. I am so much more at ease on an airliner than I am on the road. You pilots are what we truck-drivers strive to be here on Earth. The guy in the supposed corrected safety video is missing a lot of points. There are systems that are critical to a safe trip and systems that are critical to comfort. When I check my truck I make sure every part that is needed to ensure safety is 100%. The other stuff is important,but not critical.

on a flight many years ago, one of the flight attendants said " in case of an emergency, after you have stopped screaming and yelling for your lives, and when the face masks have dropped be sure and put yours on first" everyone was laughing so loud!

The safest seats in an Airplane are the seats in the last row closest to the tail section. This is because planes never reverse into the ground !!!

7:19 I think the reason the "instructor" is mentioning that because there were studies on the impact on the human body in general crash testing that has shown, that a seat facing away from the direction of movement which is a crash or rapid decelerating scenario is better to hold your body. only when you before impact press against it because then you don't accelerate forward and need your spine to feather out all the stored energy that is in your movement. of course you now could ask why not all aeroplane seeds are facing backwards. but naturally, a plane is accelerating more often and climbing more often rapidly than otherwise. so it just would every one of the 99% normal flights much more annoying for everyone.

Thanks for reinforcing what I tried to tell the flight attendant that apparently forgot when the jet engine kinda backfired near SLC Nevada and we had to make an emergency landing with one engine . The passengers were panicking of course I mean seriously if the engine would of blown a window out like the other plane on the news… I just went back to sleep due to sleep deprivation. If we’re still in the air… it’s gonna be alright… statistically speaking. READ THE CARD IN THE SEAT BACK POCKET AND PUT YOUR TRAY TABLE UP!!!

Great video. Why don't the airlines put a sign on the back of the tray table facing you saying "5 rows back to nearest exit" or "8 rows forward to nearest exit"? Most people really have no idea where their best exit is located. This could be a cheap and easy life saving solution. Even if you count the rows bucking the flow of those that haven't could be catastrophic.

First, if one flew every day, it would take just over 30,000 years to reach 11 million flights. The most I've ever done as a passenger was 250K miles per year. At that rate, it would take 44K years. Second, they left out reading the safety card. Lastly, the most "unsafe" flight I was ever on was where we had turbulence in a thunderstorm (ATL to MIA). As I sat in my seat just behind the wing root of a Delta L-1011 Tristar, I watched a drink cart and a flight attendant bounce off the ceiling at the front of the section. She broke her arm and the cart landed on the arm of the seat it was next too (but missed the passenger). Looking out the window, I watched the wings deflect up and down about 14 feet. I kept my seat-belt tightly fastened the whole trip. (I *always* keep my seat-belt on at least loosely fastened.) Quite a ride.

Didn't the wing seats being the safest come about because the wings are full of fuel they therefore have to be the strongest part of the plane structurally? I remember reading this somewhere. Like you say depends on the accident.

Why is there not sticker on the back of the seat before me, telling me how many rows before and behind me are the emergency exits? Every hotel has an evacuation plan on it's door, but not the planes ... There could also a pictogram how to brace ...
