The Emirates Airbus thing.
Does no-one else find it worrying how planes are getting bigger and bigger, but not reeeeeally any safer?
I know the odds of crashing are huge and what not, but we were on about it last time we flew - it is quite alarming how, if something goes wrong on a plane that's cruising (not like the Hudson River one that was taking off), then you are almost certainly dead. Right?
Shirley - there must be some technology that can offer you a better chance of survival if it crashes? Wouldn't you feel better if you knew you had a parachute or an ejector seat or something? I would.
Also: another thing one of my mates told me during the flight is that when they tell you to lean forward and put your hands behind your head in that position thing: it's not to make you safer. It's to make it easier to identify your corpse. Can anyone rectify this for me?
