Having worked offshore for many years, it has always been mandatory for rig crews to view a safety video in the departure area before boarding a helicopter. I have known people to be dismissed from their jobs because they did not pay attention. Obviously this would be impractical and downright impossible to enforce in today’s airports.
I am sure the airlines have to show the safety videos/demonstrations for insurance and government regulation purposes. (Also known as Cover Your A*se).
