Meet Deltalina, the star of Delta’s new in-flight safety video


Who knew that in-flight safety videos could be so popular? Introduced to the world on the Delta blog, the latest Delta in-flight safety video has generated quite a buzz around the Internet. Well, more accurately, the buzz surrounds the video's star, flight attendant Katherine Lee, known to her drooling fans as Deltalina, with secondary attention paid to the cameo appearance of Exit Row Girl. The FlyerTalk forum is all over this topic of grave national importance, including appearances from Headphone Guy, Seat Belt Guy, and the aforementioned Exit Row Girl.

I'm not sure who is in more need of a life, the person who can explain why the volume in the current video jumps up at about the halfway point, or me, the person who actually read the thread to find all these links.

    I can imagine a bored frequent flyer starting to notice such details. It’s no different than watching Star Wars over and over again.

    I like the scene in the first part (that is IV), where the two droids are in the control-room on the death-star. When the Storm-Troopers, well, storm the room, one of them bangs his helmet against the half-open door and falls flat on his back.

    At the extreme right of the picture, maybe cut off in the Zoom&Pan-Version.

  3. Well the volume post was by a guy named DeltaFreak so I am going to declare him the winner in this battle.

    With those cheeks and lips, she looks like the lovechild of Mick Jagger and Hillary Clinton. :-(

    Thank you for raising my consciousness on the supporting cast! I’m just astonished a safety vid has morphed into millions of $ worth of free advertising. Brilliant! I blogged about it here, fwiw:

    She is probably both the 9th cousin twice removed of Angelina Jolie and the 8th cousin of Brad Pitt

    "Deltalina" is so lame.  

    Nobody’s topped Jackie Bisset in "Airport" for 40 years now.

    Gotta say… the little no-smoking finger wag thing she does is hot!

  10. I am not sure how crazy you have to be to have known why the volume jumps.  I didn’t even watch the video and as soon as you mentioned it though… "I bet it’s timed to when the engines spool up".  :-)
