It says " In some areas you release the mask by pulling on this coloured streamer if your in a Club World Sleeper Seat (what is the difference between normal Club World and a Sleeper Seat) you may need to reach through the dividing screen to retrieve your mask".
Is this not dangerous as the divider is operated electrically and if there is a short circuit you can not retrieve your mask quickly? Anyone please comment!

You can press down the divider easly should the situation require it. Have seen a post some time ago regarding the design of BA's exellent Club World seat and the situation was tested before the seat was approved for commercial use. So no safety issue with this.

Quoting Offloaded (Reply 3): I honestly didn't know they were motorised. They go up and down very smoothly by hand though.
Dont do it by hand you will only break them. There is a button at the top. The divider is a mix between a motor for raising it and magnets which hold it at the top. When the button is pressed to lower it the magnets are released and the screen falls. If there is a decompression or a total cabin power failure these magnets will lose their power and thescreen should fall. The safety demo is more for the benefit of those in old Club World or in the off chance the screen has not lowered as it should.
Also dont press the button repeatedly until the screen has raised. Just press it once. If you press it twice the magnets will have been switched off meaning when the screen gets to the top it will just fall down again!
My views are my own and do not reflect any other person or organisation.
