Along with greater fuel efficiency and a reduced noise footprint compared to conventional aircraft, the Boeing 787 packs with a bevy of passenger-friendly features including a larger and more spacious cabin with more room for carry-on luggage, a quieter smoother ride, plus an effective lower cabin altitude and increased humidity to reduce the effects of jetlag.

Most likely, that's called "time lapse" or "fast forward"

But interesting though.

Jetstar still doesn't understand what good propaganda video music is.

I think that was to add fun and casualness to the airline.

Best thing for Australia would be to scrap Jetstar and put the fleet back to Qantas and Qantaslink. No need for Jetstar, No point to it, Too many other larger airlines who could do it better and cheaper. Plus why would anyone want to play with the muck at the bottom of the bucket! Better to be up the top where the cream is.

Oh but there is a need for Jetstar - it enables the QF Group to pay its staff less (different award system to QF), whilst its CEO can enjoy millions in salary and bonuses.

It also enables the QF group to compete on price rather than quality whilst selling premium seats on low cost feeder flights!
