Reply To: BA 777 Vegas-Gatwick on fire – passengers safe

@FinnKZ229 – yes I don’t disagree that it should be emphasised, just that as yet no-one has come up with a way of doing it that is guaranteed to stick in peoples’ minds in an emergency scenario. TBH I can’t see airlines (or the authorities) prosecuting passengers in such situations unless there are fatalities and it can be proven that there was a direct cause/effect.

It’s a very different scenario to the carry on baggage, I don’t think you can compare an every day situation to an highly irregular emergency one. A lot of people have a lot to say about the LAX incident, however the vast majority of them have never been in an emergency situation before and therefore can’t have any appreciation how passengers behave under extreme stress.
