Friday Fun – Good Airline Commercials I.

The following video collection is a bunch of good airline commercials. I think it’s not just me. We all love them. More airline commercials to the world! 🙂

KLM 1 – Swan taking off I really love this series. Swan is an elegant, still somehow very funny animal and a very remarkable figure for KLM. This commercial is simple and very funny.

KLM 2 – Swan landing I think this is the better part of th series.

KLM 3 – Ain’t no mountain high enough A perfect song, a perfect match for an airline that wants to communicate reliability. The song is about being there when our loved one needs us.

British Airways – Absolutely my favourite airline commercial. I saw a film about how they created it. it’s just perfect. Thousands of people are conducted to form a smiling face from air that immediately turns into a globe by taking off their top t-shirt. (They have 2 t-shirts on and the second one helps them form earth.

Finnair – animation. I like it very much. I saw it many times in different business lounges in Europe and it reminds me of that period.

To be continued next Friday. Stay with us! 🙂

According to European Aviation Safety Agency Q400 Is Safe

The European Aviation Safety Agency reported Wednesday that Bombardier Inc.’s Q400 turboprops are airworthy after ruling that a series of recent accidents were not caused by design flaws. “We are very pleased with that statement, it proves that the aircraft is safe to fly and that’s what we’ve been saying from the beginning,”Bombardier spokesman Marc Duschesne said.

The European air authorities conducted the review after Scandinavian airline SAS AB permanently grounded its fleet of 27 Bombardier-built Q400s after one of its planes made an emergency landing in Copenhagen on Oct. 27 with a landing gear malfunction, the third such incident in seven weeks.

No one was seriously injured, but the Scandinavian airline said the accidents had damaged confidence in the planes.

According to the EASA, the most recent incident “was not due to a design error” and said the airworthiness of the aircraft is maintained.

Danish aviation authorities had earlier issued a preliminary report indicating that a piece of rubber stuck in the landing gear had prevented the gear from extending properly, causing the incident.
