Air New Zealand Safety Video Pulled

An in-flight Air New Zealand safety video, which had been branded sexist, has been replaced.

The film featured models dressed in bikinis demonstrating safety procedures with airline equipment.

Australian Natasha Young began a Change.org petition which called on the airline to stop using the video.

"This video completely disregards passengers who find it offensive," she said.

I don't have a problem with it, do you?

Well, it made me pay attention. Mind you, that logo in the sand at the end looked a little dubious.

It would certainly brighten up the 06.05 NCL to LHR flight.

Well I find the image decidedly offensive. It's unsharp and badly cropped!

I think it is the airline logo, but as you say, it did look rather dubious in the sand.
