  Have you ever asked yourself why there are no parachutes (or not enough for all passangers) in civil airplanes for emergency situations?
Well I have, but the only reason I found is that they are too heavy and take cargo space. Is it plausible to parachute 100 people in case of emergency?
  What if there is a mechanism to parachute all passangers in their seats through the back of the plain. The seats should be similar with fighter pilot's seats with an incorporated parachute.
  I do not know what is the amount of casualties from plane crashes, but there might be justifications for this mechanism to be implemented in future planes.
