Born to be flight crew? This new commercial from Virgin Atlantic follows an X-Men-like theme of how their crew are born with special talents that are utilized to be superhero flight crew.
I enjoy airline commercials, and occasionally post some of my favorites here. This one has all the hallmarks of a Virgin family advert; flight crew that look like models, and a scene with slow motion walking.
My favorite moments include the young girl getting the red shoes (a Virgin trademark), and the young boy grabbing fish from the stream with has hands. Realistic? No, but entertaining. I’m not sure where a 120 second commercial will air, but I enjoyed viewing it online. With the exception of Delta’s Up campaign, I haven’t been impressed at all with recent commercials for American carriers.
Some day I’ll finally fly on Virgin Atlantic. I’m still hoping they will join Star Alliance, but it certainly looks like they are going to Skyteam.
How did you like this commercial?
