Why don’t passenger airlines have ejection seats?

Posted on Updated on

Answer by Thomas Zerbarini:

Can you imagine 150 passengers launching out of the airplane at the same time…what mayhem!

Ejection seats are so inherently dangerous, I can't see grandma surviving the experience.

It's just not financially practical nor feasible for commercial mass use. The weight of each ejection seat would not leave any room for passengers, cargo or even fuel.
