Broken: Airline safety card

Ole Hopland writes from Norway:

This image is taken from the safety card on Premiair Airlines. I interpret it as follows: I should buckle up, and place the seat in an upright position. I guess I'm supposed to be in the seat while doing this, but OK. Am I really expected to place my hand baggage under my own seat, from behind? And should I fold up the table belonging to the person behind me? I guess the illustration in the circle is telling me I have to unbuckle in order to do this.

The final preparation for take off is to take the life vest out from under the seat and throw it out of the window, and watch it float in the water alone.


I especially love the "no remote control cars" graphic. Do they often have that problem on this airline?

Actually, I don't believe that is broken. It merely attempts to demonstrate how to "use" your seat (i.e., which parts move and in what direction), not necessarily present a set of instructions to be followed in a particular order.

But Ole's description was hilarious, which I guess makes it all ok ;)

Please do not play robot wars with remote control cars and cell phones.

Do not use remote control cars on the airplane DURING TAKEOFF AND LANDING.

People trip over remote controll cars. We can't have stuardesses (excuse my spelling) falling during flight. Duh.

Why use a radio controlled anything on an airplane? To see if you can make a 747 do a loop the loop?

Not only that, but those seatbelts look really complicated.
