i am flying on the 9.40pm flight from LTN-BFS tonight.(easyjet 737) Last time i was on a 737 I noticed when i was looking at the safety card, that if a 737-300 ditches in the water, only the 2 small over wing exits are allowed to be used! I was quite suprised, and i doubt that 149 passengers would be able to escape from those tiny doors......no matter what the motivation!
I was wondering if these kind of evacuations are subject to the stringent tests that "normal" evacuations are (ie: the 90 second rule)???? Is there a time limit? i am sure it would take quite a while for a full load of passengers to escape!
