Getting passengers to pay attention to those safety videos they play before takeoff is a challenge for airlines. Now, Delta thinks it may have the answer.

"Delta-lina" is the nickname of a flight attendant in Delta's new safety video. She happens to be red-headed, and high-cheekboned, with Angelina Jolie lips — and a tendency to wag her finger playfully at viewers.

The flight attendant, Katherine Lee, has already received a marriage proposal.
