Inflight Safety

A safety demonstration typically covers all these aspects, not necessarily in this order:

  • a reminder to review the aircraft safety card
  • remind the passengers about the brace position when they hear the instruction "brace brace!" (not required by the FAA(US))
  • the use of the seat belt. Some airlines recommend that they keep their seatbelt fastened at all times in case of unexpected turbulence.
  • the requirement that passengers must comply with lighted signs, posted placards, and crew members instructions (Generally only included in safety demonstrations on US and New Zealand carriers as the FAA (US) and CAA (NZ) require it to be stated)
  • the location and use of the emergency exits, evacuation slides and emergency floor lighting
  • the use of the oxygen mask
  • the location and use of the life vests, life rafts and flotation devices (not typically included if the flight does not overfly or fly near vast masses of water)
  • the use of passenger seat cushions as flotation devices (typically only included on aircraft that do not provide life vests)
  • generally, a reminder not to smoke on board, including the toilets
  • reminder not to tamper with or disable lavatory smoke detectors (required on United States and some Mexican Flights)
  • the precautions to take before take-off and landing:
    • to stow luggage under a seat or in an overhead compartment
    • to return folding trays and seat backs to the upright position
    • to turn off most electronic devices (laptops, mobile phones, etc.)

If an emergency happens once airborne, flight attendants are trained to calmly brief passengers with emergency procedures quickly.[ci
