Airline to add “weep warnings” to emotional films

Virgin Atlantic to warn vulnerable passengers about tearjerker movies

Virgin Atlantic has announced that it will put what it calls “weep warnings” on films shown on its flights that are likely to make passengers cry. The warnings will flash on the screen before the movie begins, telling passengers that the film may be too emotional to handle. The airline decided to act after a survey was conducted for the airline in which 55 percent of respondents confessed that their emotions became more intense during flights.
More than 40 percent of male respondents said that they hid their face to hide their tears. The most emotionally moving films screened on Virgin flights have been Toy Story 3, The Blind Side and Eat Pray Love. The new movie Just Go With It may be the first to carry warning signs.
