The seven minutes video showcased Aussies in Qantas international destinations, but barely a minute of the video was filmed in Australia depicting its Landmarks and Icons. Australians would have expected Qantas to showcase more of the Australian landmarks as it is one of the best destinations in the world for holidayers.
The video is filmed over five weeks in 10 global destinations featuring real people, rather than Actors. The highlight of the video is the song “I Still Call Australia Home”
“This video lets us show off some of the amazing places you can travel on our network, and acts as a quick induction on Australian culture for visitors overseas about to fly here on a Qantas aircraft.” aid Qantas International CEO Alison Webster.
The new video will begin screening across Qantas domestic and international flights from April with different versions to accommodate eleven languages, as well as the varying aircraft types across the Qantas fleet.
A few line from social media…
“inspiring & thoroughly entertaining to captivate the audience, but where is the Dreamliner”…
“Great video, pleased to see an airliner is committed to share the world while taking safety as it’s first priority”..
“Please don’t do this. Safety videos of this length and with so much meaningless filler between points actively discourage people from paying attention each time. There are entire commercial flights shorter than this!”….
“Can’t beat that music! So happy we flew HOME (after 5 years in Hong Kong), on ‘our’ kangaroo!”….
Whats your say?..
