In the modern days of globalisation flights for an example from London to Sydney take several hours. But while we are on board incidences are not much uncommon, for that particular reasons airlines are provided with enough equipment. But there is one equipment is missing a parachute. It is also still questionable that the majority of the commercial planes don’t have parachutes for the plane.

“Since four hours of training just to board a plane is unrealistic, passengers would have to read and execute detailed skydiving instructions including how to properly strap the chute on in order to benefit from the parachute.”

It also suggest that in order to reducing wights of an aircraft and avoid hazards, major airlines normally avoid using of this important equipment on the plane.
