I really must question their relevance.. Your chances of survival in a wide body aircraft crash into an ocean is NIL. So all the carry on about life jackets/life rafts etc is a waste of time AA suggest U use the base of your seat as a flotation device.
Re narrow bodied jets.. we have the "landing on the Hudson'.. name another one! Garuda put one into a paddy field and managed to kill quite a few passengers. Other jets have landed badly at a variety of airports.. lifejackets etc irrelevant. Sure there was a Qantas jet recently where the masks dropped and were used, but a lot of the rest of the safety carry on is irrelevant.
I also note that a BA 777 in Vegas a couple years ago had major problems on takeoff and caught fire.. fortunately it was not a full flight as the passengers grabbed their bags from the overhead lockers before exiting the plane. That according to the "safety" briefing is a no no.
Look around at your fellow passengers during the safety briefing and check how many are actually looking and paying attention.. it's not too many!
