Fight a hobbit for an aisle seat?

Passengers dressed as characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's classic "The Hobbit" are seen in this still image taken from a safety video Nov 2, 2012. Fight a hobbit for an aisle seat? Get life jacket instructions from a beautiful female elf? Only on a plane to Middle Earth - or in an Air New Zealand safety video. The company's latest in a series of variations on the usual dull pre-flight safety instructions has lifted a page from "The Hobbit" in the run-up to the world premiere of the film later this month, a bid to attract visitors to the nation where much of the film was shot.[Photo/Agencies]
