1 - I´ve never come across a steward(ess) who, upon being asked politely, refused to donate a safety card. Most even go out of their way to give out a brand new one.
2 - I´ve received letters from airlines´ customer relations departments stating that I was free to grab a safety card on my next flight.
>>>However, why on earth take a safety card?!
Which other collectors´ item does better illustrate an airline´s fleet over the years?
Also, it´s very interesting to see how they change over the decades or see regional differences; e.g. European safety cards are vastly different from American ones etc.
