This is a question that arose because of your comment about chutes being used as life rafts for crew. Do you think that the decision to allow passengers to use the chutes would be made after the lifeboats and rafts were filled and launched. I would think it probably would be a sequential type of launching like lifeboats first, rafts next - by the way are rafts just dropped in the water and people are to get to them by any means they can - finally, the chutes would be used. Is this sort of the way an evacuation would be handled?
