American Airlines introduced a new safety video about a year and a half ago. Stylistically they sort of ripped off the Air France safety video.
Over time the American Airlines video will take on less importance on domestic flights. That’s because the new standard domestic configuration does not include seat back video or drop down screens in the cabin either.
However in the meantime the airline has made a minor tweak to the way the video plays on overhead screens, and in March the change will roll out to those aircraft with seat back monitors: quieting down the cheering at the end of the video, in expectation of irregular operations.
It’s awkward to appear celebratory during flight delays (although frankly the video plays when the plane is finally underway, and passengers are cheering usually).
