Do you think that in the Future, They will have Electronic SafetyScreens on the PTV screens so they can just update it from a Central Computer and not have to worry about printing Updates. I think this would wreck the hobby, but As Technology grows I believe they will replace these cheap pieces of paper into Remote Control Activated SafetyScreens.

Well Delta, Northwest (and many others i'm sure) have the safety instructions on the video screens (with the paper in the seat pocket as well).

Safety cards and safety demonstrations are not the same thing. The video presentation has merely replaced the manual (or "live", if you will) demonstration made by F/As.

Airlines worldwide are still obliged to carry a minimum number of safety cards per passenger. This is because passengers have to have access to safety information at any given time throughout the flight - and especially under certain (obvious) circumstances.

If you take a safety card with you from a seat pocket, and it is not instantly replaced, that might prevent the next passenger of having access to a safety card when needed. *That's* why airlines "get all huffy puffy" when you take a card without them knowing it, Shamu507.

I really don't see why any of you that are building a safety card collection would want to take a used copy. Ask for a new one - is that so hard? It will look better in your collection and since it will come out of the reserve stock on board, no-one will have to worry about cards having disappeared from the seat pockets.

Best regards,

TriStar.
