    Now there’s an attention-grabbing title! Lol!! Something’s gotta kill you, right, but perhaps saving a nun from a burning building would be a better way to go!

    I can’t agree more with you. Yes some selfishness can put others in danger, especially in an emergency situation.

    Hmm. This is one of those topics that’s starting a lot of controversial discussions. I have to say, if I had been on that plane, I would have grabbed my bag from under the seat. Now – thats assuming I was standing there waiting for all the rows in front of me to jump down the slide.

    If I was stuck standing there because someone in front of me was trying to wrestle their carry on suitcase from the overhead bin, I would have lost my shit.

    One of the other big things about people throwing their luggage down the slide is that it can rip the fabric and then what the hell is everyone supposed to do. If I had indeed grabbed my bag from under the seat, it would have been in my lap going down the slide.

    But then again, nobody knows how they would react in a situation like that until they’re actually in the middle of it.

      So true, but preparation is key. I think reasonable thoughts like keeping something on your lap going down makes sense, but tossing over big bags?? Honestly though..pointing out that the rafts are inflatable and thus can be punctured by luggage and high heels isn’t something that is pointed out in the safety messages from the airlines. I’m sure they are thinking it isn’t necessary!! Thanks for your comment. I appreciate you putting in your two cents.

    What a clever angle to take on such an important issue. I couldn’t believe it either when I saw those BA passengers with their luggage.

    I saw this on the news and didn’t even noticed the bags… but your totally correct. And I’m ashamed to say that I don’t listen security procedures anymore unless is something fun and unusual.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Hopefully common sense takes over in a time of real crisis. Safety procedures haven’t seemed to change much. Just listen to directions and get off the plane! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. People just get over-confident with flying, yet when they face an emergency they have no idea what to do. I love the creative security information some airlines use, it’s a great idea to focus people’s attention on this issue!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I couldn’t agree more and they are so clever! Safety clearly doesn’t have to be boring. Thanks for your comment!

  7. AHAH I watch the ones in Norway always….all the cartoon characters have beards and its a little touch that makes me giggle and attentive 🙂

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Me, too! I think my favorite though is the Southwest…I crack up every time I watch it. I have flown Southwest many times but have never had the pleasure of such a funny flight attendant in person. Maybe one day! Thanks for your comment!

  8. I have to admit that I also don’t pay so much attention to the safety explanations, simply because I have heard them so many times. It’s pretty crazy though that people were taking their luggage though. Lives are way more important!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Isn’t that the truth? While watching the video of them strolling away with their luggage I just had visions of families with young children waiting…..for luggage! Maybe on board it wasn’t as bad as I imagined. Still, heaven forbid, if I ever find myself in that situation I hope I’m surrounded by people with common sense! Thanks for your comment!

  9. Laura says:

    You’re so right that it’s incredibly rude and inconsiderate, not to mention stupid, to get your luggage before exiting the burning plane. Wow. I do watch the more entertaining safety videos, but I more often tune out the safety info because I’ve heard it a million times. But I’m never going to be one of those people who disregard common sense.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Laura, you make a great point. Most who fly have heard it all before and they even make fun of explaining the seatbelt, “If you are one of the .00008% who has never seen a seat belt before….” but we all need to use a good dose of common sense. Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comment.

  10. I couldn’t believe it when I read that people were leaving with their bags! How horrible would they have felt if their actions had caused people to get hurt or worse? People nowadays can be so materialistic.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I know…and just not think. I can’t believe that any of these people meant any harm…and it might be hard to think clearly in an emergency. But, it still seems odd to me that the default setting on our actions would be to grab our carryons! Thanks for stopping by and putting in your two cents!

  11. Love this reminder. I have noticed the airlines getting creative with their videos, and hope people are paying attention. Every second counts when you are trying to escape, I speak from experience with a house fire!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Yikes! What an experience. I saw once on tv where they filmed a house fire to show how incredibly fast it escalated. It was staged, of course, and stunning how fast fire moves. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Connie Reed says:

    Unbelievable! You are so right that those who want to take the time to retrieve their belongings should be the last to evacuate. I think they would quickly change their minds.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I agree completely! Perhaps they were moving fast, but I just know how long it takes to get everyone off the plane with their stuff during a normal landing….can’t imagine that during an emergency! Seems like it would be utter chaos!! Thanks for putting in your two cents! I appreciate your comment.

    This was a great post. Yes, I would have been upset if people would have been gathering luggage on their way to getting off. But, I am an old Army vet. I just love jumping out of them! 🙂
