Aeroflot's sensual slow-motion inflight safety video

By David Flynn, July 27 2014

We've seen our share of 'different' inflight videos in recent years, but Aeroflot's sensual clip is in a class of its own.

There's less of the healthy sun-tanned skin of Air New Zealand's controversial Safety in Paradise swimsuit video and more slow-motion poses and sultry looks.

Laden with lingering clips of the female flight attendants – the blokes appear once and only at the 30 second mark (and of course they're pilots) – the video seems to celebrate stunning Russian cabin crew as much as knowing where your nearest exit it located.

Time to switch off your mobile phone? We're uncertain if she's going to chastise the chatty traveller or ask for his number.

It seems that even fitting your life jacket becomes more interesting when it's done in languid slow-motion with a dash of smouldering eye contact.

As for the video itself? It's right here.

Of course, Aeroflot's got form in this area: the Russian airline's 2011 wall calendar (presumably sent only to male VIP customers and top-tier frequent flyers) featured naked female flight attendants.

One would not be surprised knowing the national carrier of a backwards, reactive and ill-liberal (small L) nation is espousing such views.

It's quite another when a carrier from a nation that is a beacon of progressive and enlightened thought behaves in a boorish sexist manner.

Maybe that's why they get their female flight attendants to wear dresses that look like curtain fabric.

Wonder if they have a shortened version for short-haul flights. Otherwise the flight will be over before the video is finished! I think I fell asleep around the half-way mark.

Does Aeroflot really still have the hammer and sickle emblem on theit uniform? It is comparable to Lufthansa having the swastika on theirs.
