I fully agree with you. Has anyone tried to adopt a "Legacy Brace" position on any Y seat today? just have a look at the safety cards from years ago, which showed arms under the knees and chest against the legs, to the current arms in the front seat back.
I truly believe that on a plane crash (and I mean a crash were the plane does not stand for the whole time on the wheels or belly, not a fire while takeoff run or similar evacuation events), most Y passengers will either have one or two legs / knees / ankles broken or will be unconscious after hitting their heads with the front seat back (probably with an LCD IFE display to make it even harder).
So for those still able to walk (probably seated in Y+/J/F) the 90 seconds target will be easy to accomplish, even if they want to take with them two trolleys each.
Sorry for being so sarcastic, but I see no way of not having my legs broken if after a normal 2 hours flight in some Y seats I cannot even feel my knees.
What survivable accident are you referring to? Please do some research on the safety features of the seats.
When OZ crashed a 777 an overhead bins ooened, they found out that was because the 9G limit was exceeded. Seats are tested to meet compliance.
If you feel unsafe, buy more pitch. I do.
You do realize your greatest risk of injury flying is getting to and from the airport?
Your fears are like stating you fear serving a car crash at 100kph impact, you won't. If the crash exceeds 9G, you cannot be saved. Only G trained individuals in G suits in very specific directions can.
If a plane flips, it is considered an un-survivable crash. Today's seats are far better than 30 years ago and will help in a belly landing.
There should be consumer cards. But ironically, the most environmental solution is 200 in the 738.
Meh, I've been hearing safety concerns about FR since they started. If you feel unsafe, pay LH or another legacy to fly you.
