Sumary of Why Delta Air Lines ditched its ‘Queer Eye’ safety video:
- (CNN) — US airline Delta has revealed that the pandemic not only disrupted the aviation industry but robbed its passengers of the chance to enjoy a “Queer Eye”-themed safety video.
- “While we previously hoped to bring the ‘Queer Eye’ safety video onboard, the video was produced and filmed in 2019 prior to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, ” a spokesperson told CNN on Friday.
- According to the Atlanta-based carrier, the footage was no longer in keeping with its safe-travel protocols, adding: “As the federal mask mandate remains in effect, we ultimately made the determination to look for other ways to highlight the video.” The four-minute video sees presenters Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France and Karamo Brown help demonstrate the usual safety briefing, alongside a very diverse crew.
- “What would the Delta safety video look like if reimagined by the Fab 5?
- Viewers praised the airline for its inclusivity and took to the comment section to express their desire to see the video — a nostalgic reminder of the days when masks were not mandatory and social distancing was not a way of life — on planes.
- “Wow, I’m absolutely impressed of this gorgeous safety video.
