Did You Know?



Why do you have to put the window shades up for landing and takeoff?

Window shades must be put up for landing and takeoff in case of a crash. Crew and passengers must be able to see any fire outside

It’s all about “situational awareness,” or the ability to readily identify threatening situations in an emergency. Passengers must never open an exit if there is a fire outside. Use another one on the opposite side of the aircraft.
