​Will wearing a seatbelt on a plane save your life?

Some people think that seatbelt is only necessary to aid the identification of passengers after an accident, but in fact it save many lives when the place went through bad weather or air turbulence.

In some discussions on internet “How useful when wearing seatbelts on a plane?” some said that it is only useful to aid identification of passengers after an accident.

However, according to Heather Poole, an American air stewardess and the author of Cruising Attitude: Tales of Crashpads, Crew Drama and Crazy Passengers, it is the stupidest thing. “For one, passengers switch seats all the time and we're not chasing them down trying match up names to seat numbers,” said Heather Poole.


Ms Poole said that she always ensures her nine-year-old son wears his seatbelt, even when the sign is off.

About the question “How useful when wearing seatbelts on a plane?” Heather said: “People think they're lifted up in the air during turbulence. The truth is the plane drops. It comes down hard and it comes down fast and that's how passengers get injured - by getting hit on the head by an airplane.”

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, between 1980 and 2008 there were only 234 accidents involving turbulence. Of these, Ms Poole said that they resulted in 298 serious injuries and, worse, three fatalities. “Of the three fatalities, two passengers were not wearing a safety belt while the seat belt sign was illuminated,” she said. “Of the 298 seriously injured, 184 were flight attendants.

To end this issue, Heather said the seatbelt is very useful for the safety of passengers. “You never know when it's going to happen, and it happens, even when the sign is off. That is what is called clear air turbulence. Turbulence is no joke. People get hurt.” Therefore, following guidelines of flight attendants is never useless.
