Malaysia Airlines A350-900Airlines have always vied for supremacy in the air but now there is a great battle among the premier airlines to shoot the most entertaining and informative safety video.

While promoting the airline they also promote the destination and often highlight a historic and nostalgic moment in the company’s history, sometimes injecting humour. Some notable entries for the coveted gong include Qantas, Emirates, Air New Zealand, Air France, Latam, Korean Air and Bangkok Airways.

One of the latest contributions is the big-budget Malaysia Airlines promotion featuring the 30-strong Kuala Lumpur Symphony Orchestra which has a long (7m 36) and short version to show in the air and for promotional purposes.  This all-singing, all-dancing spectacular also get the safety message through in a subtle and delightful way. Most international airlines have dumped the days of the dreary safety exhibition by cabin crew, the presentation of which most frequent flyers could mimic by the route.

Sarawak, Malaysia’s largest state joined with Malaysia Airlines in Sydney and Melbourne recently to promote the destination to media and agents.

You don’t have to be a fan of laksa to enjoy the surprises of the Sarawak region, but it might help as Sarawak Laksa is the nation’s signature dish and one of the most popular meals in the area. Located on the island of Borneo, Sarawak’s capital city is Kuching, the commercial centre of the state. Other major cities include Sibu, Miri and Bintulu. Sarawak is famous for its great variety of food, friendly population, beautiful rain forests and the culture of 27 ethnic groups that speak 45 different dialects.

Malaysia Airlines has multiple daily flights to Kuching and other regional Sarawak cities.
