Re: Still a couple problems...
said by tshirt:This always bothered me. Its under the seat. If there was an emergency, its going to fly around at our feet now, instead of our faces? that isnt any better. Also, having been on a trip where there was lots of turbulence and a shitty hard landing, those overhead storage bins like to open up and puke their contents all over. They do not stay shut very well. The seat in front of you, maybe, so you can ram your knees into it and immobilize yourself, sure. I would rather have it in my hands where I can stop if from flying around altogether.
Not if YOU actually listened AND obeyed the safety instructions.
ALL loose items MUST be stowed in the overhead bin, under the seat in front or in the seat pocket.
There was an evaluation done 20-30 years ago (after hijackings became a problem) about how to make commercial aviation SUPER SAFE
The conclusion was dimly light windowless planes, facing backward (best energy absorption in an accident) either naked or basic loaned jumpsuit no movie, no bathroom, no food, no personal items, baggage on a separate plane.
Obviously not a good seller with the airlines, who were hoping for a resounding "it's super safe NOW"
