Off topic- the purpose of airplane seatbelts

June 9, 2011

I just had a flight attendant tell me (on a choppy flight) that the real purpose of airplane seatbelts is to keep bodies strapped to a seat in the event of a crash. Not for safety, but to keep the seat/body together for “recovery”. I sadly think that’s partially true. I know turbulence can pop you out of the chair and on a bumpy landing it would keep you in the seat….maybe the attendant just didn’t like me.
