"Deltalina" Jazzes up Delta's Airline Safety Video

Finger waving beauty spices up safety on Delta Airlines

Next month the fresh face of safety will be making her debut aboard Delta Airlines. She doesn't have anything new to say, but she's beautiful, playful and Delta's hoping she'll get you excited about safety in ways you've never imagined.

Deltalina, an amalgamation of Delta and the actress Katherine Lee resembles - Angelina Jolie - is serious about putting safety. With just a hint of dominatrix in her scolding. And she's single.

See for yourself:

Can you remember the last safety video you actually watched? Dated and dry as 1985 reruns of Magnum PI.

Delta's new safety video has a few surprises though. It created such a buzz on the Atlanta-based airline's corporate blog that execs thought they'd take it for a test drive on YouTube. So far the video is a hotter hit than Britney going bald.

"The main focus is to get our customers' attention and make sure they know what to do in the event of an emergency ... adding bits of humor and unexpected twists to something pretty standard," says Chris Babb, a Delta product manager in charge of producing the video.

The mandatory Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety instructions also have smooth jazz beat to DeltalinaDeltalinaaccompany Deltalina's instructions on how to buckle a seat belt, when to put your cell phone away and how to wear an oxygen mask

And then there's the finger wag. Midway through 4 ½ minute video, Lee wags her finger - smoking is not allowed on any Delta flight...

Fun, playful and a beautiful woman to deliver the message - Delta's hoping this is the perfect combination. Personally, I like Virgin's video better. No beautiful women, but funny. What do you think?

Now, if all of them would just put some money into finding a way to make the food taste better...

Fess up. Do you watch the safety video or do you zone out and run through your agenda, itinerary, shopping spots....?

Cannot stand the artificial lips. Hate it; can't believe anyone thinks it's attractive. Jolie looks ridiculous.

That woman is so unattractive that it was hard to watch the whole video. And I didn't see what the big deal is about...it was just the same old safety instructions that you hear/see on every flight.

I loved the video. I am so happy to see a fun, attractive and sassy gal on the safety video. It's about time they spiced it up a bit.

It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
