On Saturday I posted a link to a pretty epic Air China promotional video which was unveiled last month. In it, an animated panda gives a tour of Air China’s Boeing 747-8. And. It’s. Amazing.
Reader Paos pointed out that this was actually a sequel to another promotional Air China video, entitled “Captain Panda’s 8 Hours in Beijing:”
Oh my, it might just be even more epic. My thoughts?
- Am I the only one that finds the descent rate of the plane a bit alarming?
- At least the video is accurate about the fact that your longhaul Air China flight will arrive at a remote stand
- It’s a bit concerning that Captain Panda only has eight hours between flights, and doesn’t use it to rest
- I don’t think I’ve ever had an Air China captain who speaks English even a tenth as well as this upstate New Yorker… usually Air China pilots are more like this:
Regardless, what an awesome video! Here’s to hoping this becomes a series for Air China!
