An important learning point for SLF arising from the Ethiopian crash off Comoros mentioned above (Ethiopian 961 in November 1996) is that there were a few survivors, but it was reported that many more might have survived but that they inflated their lifejackets before exiting, so couldn't get out (and probably blocked others). We're always told "don't inflate before exiting", and that's why,.
