Sheamus Tomlin : I just realized Gandalf directed Thor Ragnarok!


John Smith : If they had the option to watch all of the LOTR on the flight over for free it would be the most baller move an airline could make.

SergeantSilly : this is marketing. Just the fact that they made this video is a reason for me to fly with Air New Zealand.

scottski02 : And if you're a peasant in economy class, your lifejacket's up in Isengard

Jaden M. : This video has more views than the population of New Zealand itself.

Angelica : I never thought one day i would enjoy a safety video! Very well done and not even a fan of LOTR! 💖 EDIT: Today, (6 months after i commented this video for the first time) I have something to tell you guys. Now I am a fan of Tolkien!!!. It's so crazy but i have to admit it. I fell in love with it. First youtube started recommending me LOTR and The Hobbit stuff right after i saw this video. So one day i decided to give the thing an opportunity and then....zas!! It clicked with me. Tolkien's whole universe moved me deep. Now i love middle earth so much. That land is so full of magic ahh ...😍😍😍 I remember i could not believe it since i had always made fun of my cousing who is a super fan. What i didn't know was i would fell soon for it too. Now as a fan i couldn't stop smiling in this video. And i enjoyed 3 times more!!! 😍😍😍 (I'm reading the books now and i fell in love with the ElveKing Thranduil 😍❤) Pd. If you haven't seen LOTR movie go watch it. You can also see The Hobbit. Then read the books and you'll love it. The thing is that the Hobbit movie changed so much the book but the cast was amazing, specially Thranduil (Lee Pace 😍❤) what a beautiful man omg!!! I also saw "The fall" with Lee Pace and it's one of the best movies i've seen so far. I recommend that to you so so soo much. Have a great day y'all!!! 💖💖💖
