Gonna miss these guys

I fly almost every week, Virgin whenever I can.  I truly appreciate the complete absence of long-winded achtung monologues from the cabin crew.  Instead they have nice boarding music, and for safety instructions this video:

Ok, it's not Abbey Road, but as airline safety instructions go, it's top of class, and raises the possibility that the people working for the airline are actually enjoying themselves (for completists, here is a behind-the-scenes documentary).

Hopefully Alaska will keep at least some of this as they exterminate the Virgin brand, and continue to operate a beating-free, bunny-safe airline, unlike some other operations I could name.  And, who knows, why not offer customers a little humor, pleasantness, and dignity.  Lord knows the industry has tried everything else.
