    Air New Zealand, the airline that brought us safety videos featuring exercise-celebrity Richard Simmons, characters from the Hobbit movies and nearly naked crew members with “Nothing to Hide,” is at is again.

    This time the airline has gone retro, offering passengers on its fleet of Airbus A320s a lesson in “Safety Old School Style” set in a retirement community and starring Betty White, an actress familiar from television shows such as “The Golden Girls,” and “Hot in Cleveland.”

    The reasoning behind having older people instruct modern-day travelers in on-board safety is simple, says White at the beginning of the video: “If you want to know about survival, talk to us; because you’re going to want some advice from people who have been there and done that.”

    Other familiar faces in the video include Gavin MacLeod, who appeared with White on the “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and, later, as the captain on “Love Boat.” Actor Jimmy Weldon, who lends his voice to Yakky Doodle duck in “The Yogi Bear Show,” also has a cameo appearance.
