    airbags on airplanes

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...ryId=114115635

    Sounds like an overall great idea. How do you think they would work on small children? I can see some serious issues with lap held children.

    Re: airbags on airplanes

    and now that I think about it more, seatbelt airbags would be bad, bad, bad with an installed carseat. I think the airlines are going to have to have a set of standards as to who/what can sit in positions equipped with airbags.
