On a Mesaba flight I was on today, I was flying in first and noticed there were life jackets for the first class seats and the cushions for coach. The safety card had a supplimental sheet explaining their use.
Here is the quesiton. After the titanic, i remember there was a maritime law that passenger safety equipment was required to be the same regardless of fare paid and this also applyed to aircraft.
Now I understand why the seat design in first requires a life jacket (the seat is huge) but, by offering life jackets to first pax wouldnt they have to also throw them in coach?
