Oh, the huge tragedy!

GIS Andrea Dworkin and you'll see what type of people are the 7,000. Not safe for anything in your stomach.

I want naked women instead. Put an equal number of naked men to make it fair for everyone.

And this is why we can't have nice things.

Did anyone else think the first words out the female spokeperson's mouth were "For dickheads..."
 
2014-07-06 07:57:20 PM  
Half Naked? Not the half I wanted.
 
2014-07-06 07:59:48 PM  
I bet the woman that started this petition feels ugly in a bikini.

I actually just flew on New Zealand Airlines, and I can tell you getting rid of the video is a good idea. You see right after take off the oxygen masks dropped. I tried to think back to the safety video and after doing my best to recall what was in the video, I crammed my face into the boobs of the 22 year old bikini model sitting next to me.

Turns out is was the pilot accidentally pushed the mask release button by mistake. I could only imagine if my wife had to identify my charred body and was only able to recognize the boob shaped area of on cooked skin on my face.

Instead, they will now feature topless women in thongs.

Thanks jerks!

Conservative bikinis are considered half naked now?

Can't have nice things.jpg

And promotes sexualization of the female body? Apparently none of the 7k women on the petition has ever read a women's magazine.

What's wrong with being sexy?

Just so you don't have to deal with the embedded YouTube. It's a pain, on my phone at least.

A New Zealand is a swimsuit made of two respectible parts with a brief gap in the mid-section.

That was posted in the Univision thread yesterday by megarian. I still haven't eaten. I may never eat again.

I flew on a plane that had cartoon characters doing the safety video.
 
2014-07-06 08:11:35 PM  
I saw the video and I thought it was fine. C'mon people it's an island....bikinis are expected!

And this coming from a chubbs who would  never wear a bikini.

Fat, ugly, bitter and loud mouthed is no way to go through life, princess.

Please just sit there quietly and try to enjoy the ride.

7000 people who probably had never flown on Air New Zealand signed a petition asking them to change their video.
 
2014-07-06 08:23:21 PM  
Well, I suppose it's better that we have a non-bikini video that we can all ignore again.  Enjoy your swim.
 
2014-07-06 08:25:49 PM  
Why hasn't this turned into a thread full of pictures of hot women in bikinis?
 
2014-07-06 08:28:40 PM  
A Canadian news website reports on a british tabloid story about a safety video for Air New - Zealand.

Talk about a slow news day !

I never watch the videos or the stewards for that matter.... I just look for where the emergency exit rows are in relation to where I am seated, and I am all good, and go back to my Ebook reader.

I wonder if any of the people who signed the petition actually fly the airline.  Folks down under don't seem that uptight.

Stop repeating this lie.

/Loves looking at naked men and wishes there were more of it in tv/movies.
 
2014-07-06 08:44:29 PM  
Gosh. Women (and about the same number of men) wearing beach-appropriate clothing.  On the beach.

The horror.

/The real question is why the flight attendants in the beginning of the video were wearing their uniforms on the beach.

You just risked condemning those with poor sarcasm meters to lifelong eyesight and mental problems. It's not funny. Make sure to always include a NSFW tag when daring someone to GIS her.

OMG! When did females start having sex?

It's not being cool, it's being bored. If you have seen the same thing as many times as I have, you no longer notice it.

You can fly if you want to, leave your real friends far behind, because your friends don't fly and if they don't fly well they're no friends of mine.

Okay, so I moved from California to New Zealand 3 weeks ago (brrr.. didn't bring nearly enough warm clothes for an actual winter) and that was the video they played on the plane.

I was thinking... "New Zealand... first country to let women vote... one of the first to have a woman prime minister...this is unexpected"

I knew it wouldn't last though. Too many "This is an outrage!" internet crusaders. The bikinis must have distracted them from the Washington Redskins bashing and the "get prayer out of school" people.

I was once on a Jetblue flight, and the head attendant had a whole, literal, song and dance. There was applause. I think it was the safety briefing, anyway. Can't recall JB having anything else in their preflight, and I was just on another one yesterday.

Saw it twice last week. Eh..amusing at first, but really, when you let an airline and Sports Illustrated do something, you can rest assured its going to be pretty lame and corporate.

And it was.

Girls were cute though.
