Using this latest incident....the flight time would have been perhaps five minutes and they could have been landed on the shore....and shuttled to a safe location for further processing.

But as I said...and as you have pointed out....there are physical limitations to using such a basket.

Ships have life boats and life rafts for a reason....and when one goes for a cruise....you do take certain risks even unknowingly.
