Also floor lightning with real lights is being gradually changed in many airlines for the fluorescent type, much cheaper.
Also much longer life so much less frequent replacement/testing

It's also to be noted that these things DO work;
You can also find out they work by riding on a NW
A3xx with an inopp APU. FA
upon arriving at the gate at LAX
and after engine shutdown: "Had this been an actual emergency landing you would follow the lights that have illuminated to the nearest exit, and always remember the nearest exit may be behind you. Please do not open the emergency exits and thank you for flying Northwest Airlines"
I am, of course, no expert on the subject, but the use of glow "tape" (as we referred to it when I dabbled in theater) makes sense... Any airlines using electroluminescent lighting? I would imagine that the MX
impact is similar but you don't have to worry about it being "charged" (or fading out if the cabin lights are off)
