Virgin Atlantic has awards season fever — their new onboard safety video, debuting this week, takes inspiration from awards season and  iconic titles such as Brief Encounter and 2001, A Space Odyssey. 

We’ve long been fans of this accessibly-luxe airline, which offers individual seatback TVs and interactive TV entertainment in all classes.  Flyers enjoy touchscreen entertainment, along with the ability to plug in your own portable devices, including mobile phones, cameras and MP3 players.

What do you think? We like the cheeky, yet still high-end approach to a safety video. And of course, we’d like it even more if we were traveling in their posh upper class.
