As a tribute to Delta's first safety video premiering in the 80's, our latest version is 80's themed to continue our emphasis on safety in an engaging way.
The safety video was filmed over 20 hours on a Delta 777 in Detroit. More than 100 people including 20 actors, 80 extras, six flight attendants and a pilot are featured in the video dressed in 80's fashions including authentic Delta flight attendant uniforms, leg warmers, hair scrunchies and neon colors. There are also cameos from some of our favorite 80's stars including basketball player Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who had a cameo in the movie "Airplane", as a Delta first officer. We also have our favorite '80s alien, Alf, and even an original member of Devo, Gerald Casale, safely storing the popular energy dome.
We introduced safety videos designed to be constantly updated with fresh scenes to reward even the most frequent of frequent flyers for paying attention. Watch the full video here and be sure to let us know what you think!
