Easy - they all have to do a muster drill again.

Now if you are flying say LHR- Auckland; they have a stopover say at Hong Kong - some people leave ; some people join the flight and some just get off and stretch their legs.

In that case they go through the safety briefing again - quite correctly. Different crew etc

Same should apply to vessels.

I would wager if you asked any passenger what their lifeboat no is - most wouldn't know even if they had attended a safety drill 24 hrs earlier - maybe I am being cynical.

I have seen passengers having to physically restrain fellow passengers from leaving a drill early because they wanted to get back to their drinks.

I hope this incident has a silver lining - I live in hope.

BTW I don't want to even bring up the question of Travel Insurance.
