Air New Zealand do it again with the most epic safety video #airnzhobbit

Oct 23, 2014

Air New Zealand have only gone and done it again! They’ve made another fantastic Hobbit Safety Video!

Dwarves, Orcs and Elves take flight once again as Air New Zealand unveils The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made ahead of the December release of the final film in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM).

Starring in The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made are members of the cast from all three films in the Trilogy – Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins), Dean O’Gorman (Fili the Dwarf) and Sylvester McCoy (Radagast).  The video, which is directed by Kiwi filmmaker Taika Waititi (Boy, What We Do in the Shadows) also features cameos from The Hobbit Trilogy director Sir Peter Jackson, Weta Workshop co-founder Sir Richard Taylor and Waititi himself, who appears as a Wizard.

Air New Zealand – The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made #airnzhobbit

The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made

The safety video was shot over six days across a number of New Zealand’s Middle-earth locations, including Hobbiton and Central Otago, both of which appear in The Hobbit Trilogy.  Behind the scenes creative talent from the films was also involved in the production of the video, including Weta Workshop, which supplied costumes and more than 150 make-up prosthetics, and Weta Digital, which created the visual effects.

Sir Peter Jackson says, “Air New Zealand has created yet another fantastic video to celebrate The Hobbit films.  This latest offering combines members of our cast and our locations with Air New Zealand’s unique personality.  I had a lot of fun on the set with Taika and the team and look forward to seeing the video on board.”

Air New Zealand Head of Global Brand Development Jodi Williams says the latest safety video wraps up a successful three-year association between the airline and The Hobbit films.

“We are very proud to be the official airline of Middle-earth and have worked hard over the past three years to create highly effective global marketing campaigns, including distinctive branded aircraft and Hobbit-inspired online content, which have got the world talking about both our airline and destination New Zealand.”

Air New Zealand Safety Videos

The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made follows the airline’s first safety video to be inspired by The Hobbit films – An Unexpected Briefing (2012) – which attracted more than 12 million global online views and generated huge media and social media coverage.

“We’re confident our final Hobbit-inspired on board safety video will delight fans as much as the first one and inspire even more people to consider a visit to Middle-earth,” says Ms Williams.

Air New Zealand’s safety video show reel includes the Bear Essentials of Safety featuring adventurer Bear Grylls, Safety Old School Style with Betty White and Fit to Fly starring fitness legend Richard Simmons.  Collectively the airline’s safety videos have clocked up more than 30 million hits online.

Happy Birthday Girl – Virgin Atlantic 787-9 arrives at Gatwick

Oct 10, 2014

The first Virgin Atlantic 787-9 Dreamliner has touched down at Gatwick Airport after completing its first transatlantic flight from the Everett Paine airfield at Boeing.

Named ‘Birthday Girl’ – the airline’s first Boeing Dreamliner will begin scheduled flights between London Heathrow and Boston on the 28th October.

Fitted out in the usual Economy, Premium Economy and Upper Class Suite cabins this is one of 15  787 twin engine aircraft Virgin Atlantic has ordered from the US manufacturer.

With larger, electronically lit passenger windows, more space inside with larger overhead hand luggage storage and a quieter environment the 787 should offer passengers a more relaxed travel experience. Virgin Atlantic have also upgraded their cabins to add to the passenger experience.

Upper Class  Suite

Virgin’s 31 Upper Class Suite seats are set out in 1 – 1 – 1 layout across the aircraft. They are pretty unique as they provide a seat that you can recline from the moment you board the aircraft.Unlike other similar class seat you never need to put the seatback into an upright position.The business class cabin now has a new bar backdrop offering passengers a place to socialise.

Premium Economy

The 35 Premium Economy seats provide the usual extra space and comfort that you would expect and similar to the Upper Class cabin there is also a ‘social space’ called the ‘Wander Wall’ where you can stretch their legs and mingle with other passengers.

Economy Class

For the remaining 196 seats on this aircraft you will find, according to Virgin Atlantic, the  ‘best-in-class’ seating. The Recaro 3620 model seats provide space saving solutions to give you more room to stretch out and enjoy the flight.

As always the airline will provide the latest inflight entertainment along with wi-fi access that is available from as soon as you board the aircraft, right through to landing at your destination. No information on costs for this service has been released yet but with the recent regulation changes with mobile devices it will certainly be another feature that will attract ‘social’ passengers.
