John Travolta may be a Goodwill Ambassador for Australia’s Qantas Airlines, but he’s reportedly upsetting a lot of the employees with his “corny” airplane safety video.
John appears in a three-minute safety video for Qantas that is shown before every take off, but employees are not fans.
According to the Australia Daily Telegraph (via The Hollywood Reporter), employees are writing on online forums that the video is “cringe worthy,” “corny” and “tacky.”
Flight attendants take issue with being called “the team” instead of cabin crew members.
“We feel it’s demeaning to be called ‘the team,’ one employee reportedly told the Telegraph. “It makes us feel like we work at McDonald’s.”
“The whole thing seems to make the safety message seem trite,” another added.
But a company spokesperson says there has only been positive feedback from the staff and customers regarding John’s video.
“We’re really happy with the video and we think it’s really engaging,” she said.
