When an aircraft crashes and the the wreckage comes to rest, it is now the job of the cabin crew to evacuate the survivors. The value of a competent cabin crew is essential. They must have the training, the authority, and the will to rapidly evacuate the aircraft.

The cabin crew of Asiana Flight 214 was able to get all but two out of the aircraft. Had they delayed the evacuation, there likely would have been more deaths and injuries from the fire. The competence of the Asiana cabin crew is in part due to the lessons we have learned from the past.
