It has always been the attitude of many passengers to stand-up right after the aircraft lands and taxis to the parking gate. They do not see the danger of standing-up while the fasten seatbelt sign is switched it which could lead to injuries or even death. Airline policies do state that the fasten seatbelt light has to be followed where we have to remain in our seats until it is switched off.
It is very important to wait for the fasten seatbelt sign to be switched off before standing up from our seats to get our luggage and line-up for the door due to safety reasons. Sadly, many passengers still do defy their flight crew when being instructed to sit down once again.
Honestly, we still do not understand why people do rush to get their luggage right after the aircraft lands. As far as we know, getting off the aircraft is not a marathon where there are podium finishes and trophies to be given away to those who get off the aircraft first.
Here are the reasons why you have to follow the fasten seatbelt sign until it is switched off:
So please exert a little patience and wait for the captain to say when it is okay to stand and get your luggage. Anyway, you all get off the aircraft at almost the same time. Do not stand to take your luggage from the overhead compartments while the fasten seatbelt sign is on. Your safety is paramount.
