In the event of a plane crash, fire or glass would make it more difficult to escape barefoot.

Avoid taking off your shoes and slippers on the plane: The choice of shoes when flying must also ensure that they help you run fast? Therefore, airlines always encourage passengers to wear sports shoes or flat shoes, instead of high heels when flying.

Besides choosing the right type of shoes, you should also limit taking off your shoes while on the flight. Because in the event of an airplane crash, fire or broken glass can make escaping barefoot more difficult. You can even get burned by fire or injured by stepping on sharp debris.

Dress appropriately: Statistics show that 68% of plane crash victims die from a subsequent fire that causes them to burn or breathe in smoke. Therefore, you should not wear clothes with flammable materials or baggy clothes. To increase your chances of surviving a fire, you should choose clothes made from cotton or wool fabrics rather than fabrics with a lot of nylon. Some experts suggest the right outfit for you to fly on a plane is a T-shirt with tight pants or loose pants and a thin shirt on the outside.

Choose a seat at the back of the plane: The rows of seats located at the back of the plane are often not a favorite choice for many people because they are quite narrow, prone to shocks when the plane goes through bad weather. However, according to a study from the Aviation Safety Network, seats at the back of the cabin can increase your chances of survival, based on survival rates from 65 plane crashes.
