Pre-Flight Safety Briefings

As part of their pre-departure duties, the cabin crew give a safety briefing to passengers that includes the emergency evacuation of the aircraft.

This briefing will refer passengers to their safety briefing cards but will always include pointing out exit locations and floor path lighting for use in poor visibility.

The briefing will advise on the availability of evacuation slides at exits and may give instructions on how to open exits. passengers seated in emergency exit rows at overwing exits where no cabin crew are located may be individually briefed on how to open these in the event of an emergency.
