Do airlines really care about your safety?

Hello mylotters, I have wondered about htis for a long time. Large sea going vessels have lifeboats, lifeboats have been around for ages. Passenger aircraft have nothing, parachutes have been around for about a hundred years. To me this says, airlines care little really about passenger safety, they just want your money. Military aircraft also have ejection seats, as well as parachutes. Some military aircraft ejected the entire cockpit which parachuted to safety. I might change my mind if they put parachutes on the seats with a floaty ring. Getting on a airplane without a parachute is like stepping off a cliff. If something goes wrong, there is no way back, you are doomed. I've been up in more airplanes than I have come down in. Parachutes can save lives. In my opinion, there is no excuse good enough for compromising passenger safety. I would redesigned the aircraft or retrofit them. What do you think about aircraft safety?

Parachutes are very good idea to put into passenger airplane and that indeed can really save lives in term of unseen emergencies while flying in the airways. But as of the moment I can say that commercial airlines looks after for the safety of the passenger for if they don't they will be the one losing much more money if they will not secure the safety of the passenger onboard, Pilots and other aircraft staff belongs to the highly competent individual and it takes a lot of skill to master the art of flying.

I hear what your saying maribel1218, I just think that they are slack in their ways, because, it could be done. They could have made planes much safer than they are. Thanks for dropping in.
