Emirates crew 'perform' on football field

By Vicky Kapur

Dubai-based Emirates airline has published a new video on YouTube, showing off the skills of their multi-talented female flight attendants.

The airline has posted a couple of videos of their cabin crew ‘performing’ for the fans of the German Bundesliga club Hamburger Sport-Verein (HSV), a club that Emirates sponsors.

“Watch as our cabin crew return to perform our new safety video… only this time they’re keen to show off their football skills to HSV fans,” the airline said in a video posted on March 3, 2016.

Cabin crew of Emirates, the world’s largest airline, took to the field during a break in the game at Germany’s Volksparkstadion football stadium located in Bahrenfeld, Hamburg, Germany.

The stadium is the home ground of Hamburger SV and was one of the 12 stadia used in the 2006 Football World Cup, hosting four group games and a quarter-final match.

Nearly 60,000 people watched as the select group of female flight attendants, fully clad in their airline uniform, began a safety announcement in the spirit of the football game while also showcasing their kicking skills from the penalty line.

The YouTube video, which shows the staff members performing some cool football tricks for HSV fans, has been viewed more than 78,000 times in less than three days.
