We're flying out on Thursday and the tartlets are getting excited. They want to know what they should do if the aircraft accidentally crashes into a very large bird - should they try to jump to safety? How high up will they be in the sky? Are there parachutes under the seats? Should they bring swimming goggles in their hand luggage in case they land on water?
I have assured them that statistically air travel is safer than driving around in my car.
I have also reassured them that should something happen to the aircraft we will all be instantly killed and go together to heaven, which will be nice since nobody is left an orphan. (Also I hate goodbyes...)
