Many people seems to freeze when an emergency occurs. In a crowded airline cabin, those people also get in the way of everyone else.
Today’s invention is a way to help airline passengers escape a plane.
It makes use of the seat-back screens, together with knowledge of the passengers’ identities and seat numbers.
At the moment when an evacuation is called for, the screens would be switched on and a personal message would appear (this could be agreed a long time previously and just left on the system).
Mine, for example, would use my passport photo and in large print it would say
“Get up Patrick NOW! Leave your stuff and get to an exit.”
This might additionally provide the message verbally (as recorded, say, by my wife).
