British Airways has launched a new version of its Flying Start safety video, if the current version has started to drive you mad.

This one features David Walliams, Joanna Lumley, Jourdan Dunn (no, don’t know either), Sir Michael Caine, Naomie Harris and Olivia Colman.

The ‘directors cut’ is below at almost 6 minutes long.  The actual version being shown is shorter than the current version and there is a version for short-haul flights which has been cut even more – cabin crew had made it known that the existing video was so long that it was disrupting their pre-flight routines.

The good news is that donations to Flying Start increased by 20% when the first version was introduced.
