John Travolta Angers Qantas Employees With In-Flight Video Appearance
By Sarah Crow Posted Mar 22nd 2011 01:15PM
Employees at Australia's national airline, Qantas, are more than a bit miffed after actor John Travolta showed up on-screen in full pilot regalia to introduce their most recent in-flight safety video.
Travolta, who is a certified private pilot, tells passengers, "This is your captain speaking -- well, maybe not today," which Qantas employees have panned as "tacky" and "corny," in addition to being insistent about having a "real" pilot make the announcement.
While Travolta's experience has mainly involved flying small planes, in 2010, he famously piloted Oprah Winfrey's entire studio audience to Australia as part of an all-expenses paid trip to celebrate her talk show's final season.
Check out John Travolta's video for Qantas.
