Despite Richard Simmons comedy routine, Air New Zealand public affairs manager stressed that safety takes centre stage in the clips, saying, "Safety is paramount and non-negotiable at Air New Zealand, and Fit to Fly will again get our passengers sitting up and taking notice of these important pre-flight messages in an engaging and fun way. Simmons' fitness moves will definitely ensure that all eyes are on the safety briefing".
