I never understood exit door standards. . .when to have less. . .when to have more. . .widebody or narrowbody. . .how does someone determine these necessary, or unnecessary? I do know it has a lot to do with emergency drill times for the pax to deplane. . .but just look at that DC-8! C'mon. . .what gives?
Was it different during the DC-8 production era compare to now? I think there are probably other examples of a/c that are similar to hte DC-8 example.
