I was flying Lauda /Austrian Airlines. The landing video was, as usual, an advertising clip for the airline. It was a montage of footage from various countries they fly to.

Clips of Europe, South East Asia and it ended with some 'native people' (I'm not sure who they were meant to be but they were doing a 'tribal' dance). They stopped in the middle of their dance to gaze at the big silver plane overhead in wonderment. And the tail logo for Lauda filled the screen.


I can't help but think they included this bizarre dogy clip because they are Austrian ie German. I don't know but what was it doing there?
And did I do anything about it, like talking to anyone?


Close relative non sequitur: "There is a general fear of Orientals swamping Australia".
I left the room.
