Other Names: Faulty aircraft
Nature: Lack of aircraft safety usually stems from economic considerations. Inadequate escape precautions (such as jammed doors, buckled seats, torn-up floors, badly placed fuel pipes, and poorly arranged escape chutes) are asserted to be a main cause of potentially lethal incidents.
Counter Claim: Aircraft are one of the safest type of vehicles in which to travel.
Problem Type: E: Emanations of other problems
