Safety question: always passengers at the emergency exit or not???

Post by mirickkonson » 20 May 2019, 15:01

Hi,

I thought that exit doors on the wings always should be manned(womanned ;) ) during a flight.

Flew with SAS this week the 12 seats were empty.

Last year with Ryanair this was also the case but the cabin crew asked some people to move to the exit seats.

Hello Mirickkonson,

While it's recommended to have passengers sitting near the emergency exits, it's not mandatory.

Ryanair has it as a company policy, but it's not required by the regulator
