Day 3: Buying a ticket

Day 3: 
Now that you have chosen your country it is time to start planning your trip. One of the first things you will need to do is to buy an airplane ticket. There are many, many airlines that fly around the world. Some of the most common are:
Air Canada Air New Zealand

Emirates             Air Asia

When you get onto the airplane you will be asked to watch a short safety video that tells you how to stay safe when flying in a plane. Arguably, the best aiplane safety videos are produced by Air New Zealand.

Activity 1
Watch both of the current Air New Zealand safety videos. The first is a video that stars the All Blacks. The second is a video that stars Rhys Darby and Anna Faris (Hollywood actress).  Links for the videos are found below:
Air New Zealand Men In Black’ video
Air New ZealandSafety in Hollywood’ video
Once you have finished watching the videos, go to your blog and list three things that you need to do to stay safe on an airplane.
1: One thing that you need to do to stay safe on an airplane is that when you are seated make sure that your seat belt is fastened.
2: A second thing you need to do to keep safe while on an airplane is that if you have loose items store them under the seat in front of you or the locker above you.
3: One last thing to keep safe is that when a life jacket is needed there will be one stored beneath your seat, when gotten out tighten the belt and when exiting plane pull the red tab, for more expansion blow into the red mouth piece.
Activity 2
Imagine that you have been asked to create your very own airline. What would you call it? Design a simple logo for your airline and post it on your blog. You must include a short explanation of your logo below the picture.
This is the airline I have created it is called Air Kiwi. I have put a picture if a kiwi on my logo so people will always see a friendly kiwi when flying with this aircraft and can feel comfortable as well as feeling safe. The kiwi represents New Zealand and that people will want to visit and travel to New Zealand more.


  1. What a lovely, inviting logo, Mikaela! You've put some good thought into a symbol that clearly represents what the company is about!

    And you've clearly read the information about safety tips for traveling on an airplane and explained them well! Sounds like you're all ready for a trip overseas!

    The information suggests that some of the best safety videos are made by Air New Zealand and I agree. When I was traveling to visit Rachel, my daughter, on Air New Zealand I thought the videos were excellent - funny, enjoyable and educational.

    I hope you're enjoying these blogging activities - you're doing a super job!

  2. Hey Mikaela,
    I liked how you used New Zealand as a good example for safety. It would raise out population.
    Keep up the Good Work.

  3. Talofa Mikaela,

    Whenever we fly on a plane, it's always so important to listen to all of the flight crew instructions. I can see that you have paid very close attention to the two videos here, well done! Which one did you like the best? I liked the Men in Black one I think, it was pretty funny :-)

    Air Kiwi is a great name for your airline! Kiwis are friendly birds, just like the people who live here, so hopefully it attracts lots of new people to our country to visit. Have you ever flown on a plane before? If you have, who did you fly with? Was their logo as cool as yours?
