I’ve always liked looking at the safety placards when I fly. I’ve only been on two trips during 2021, and the current version in the Alaska Airlines 737 struck me as particularly funny.
The character is just so hip. He’s got tattoos, a Sub Pop t-shirt, converse shoes, drinking coffee and reading a book.
The oxygen deployment demonstration shows that it’s cool for dads to be taking their daughters on airplanes. It’s also implying that kids like airplanes and are more likely to be engrossed in a toy airplane than whatever is causing the masks to be deployed.
There are so many things to love about this picture. The guy standing has a puffy coat. The woman has a laptop covered in stickers. The other woman is carrying a Starbucks coffee. The follicaly challenged man is wearing cuffed trousers and boots. Everyone pictured is narrow and fit looking. The amount of knee room between the seats compared to a real airplane just seems cruel.
