Reply To: Is there any need for a pre-flight safety briefing from cabin crew?

What amazes me about the whole thing is this…..

If there is an accident involving an aircraft, the appropriate bodies stop at nothing, with cost not being an issue to find out the cause of the accident.
Then fixes are implemented to ensure that the risk is removed or at the very least minimised..
Because of this approach air travel has now become the safest form of travel.

Yet, and without the time to go and research specific incidents , time and time again fatalities have happened in survival incidents because people couldn’t get out the aircraft in a timely manner.

But, where are we today, what has the industry done to improve our safety ……lighting strips on the floor!!

No smoke hoods, not even a smoke mask….

But we are allowed on with everything including the kitchen sink, allowed to use distracting devices during the 2 most critical parts of the flight, and of course the airlines assume all will be well if they yak to us about “stuff”

In my opinion ,a totally unsatisfactory state of affairs…..
