Listen to the safety spiel



Published: Mon, August 8, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



Philadelphia Inquirer: Frequent fliers face more tedium than ever: queries about luggage; identification checks; shoes off, shoes on. Finally on the plane, they think they can disappear behind a magazine and ignore the speech they've heard a zillion times.

Perhaps it's human nature to tune out something we hope we never need. Fortunately, flight attendants take safety seriously, as last Tuesday's crash of an Air France jet proved so dramatically.

No one died. Fewer than 50 people were injured. It's a testament to a smart evacuation plan executed by a well-trained crew.
