Turbulence do you wear your seatbelts.

Recommended Posts

Today a flight to Bangkok was hit by extreme Turbulence causing some very bad injuries hopefully everyone will make a recovery. 

I must say most of the time I do wear my seat belt in flight even when the seatbelts lights are off, certainly on 1 of my flights recently I have been in quite bad Turbulence and that was on a 777 after leaving Dubai going to Manchester it was a night flight so most were seated.

Always. A flight I was on many years ago hit some unexpected turbulence. I had a seatbelt on and was ok but a lot of the passengers were injured.

I always keep the seatbelt fastened when seated.

I've only had bad turbulence once, it was on a domestic flight from Auckland to Gisborne in NZ.
Most of the flights are tiny planes, ones with the props, one seat on each side of the aisle type deals. Was flying in some terrible weather, getting bounced all over the place, lady across from me was a first time flyer, tried my best to assure her we'll be ok. Luckily for all aboard, we landed safely at our destination.

Always on, even when reclined for sleeping. I only take it off when I'm going to the toilet. 

Id rather be somewhat restricted by the seatbelt than end my trip before I even crossed the equator due to turbulence.

always on when seated...I've had people look at me as though I'm a loon when I scurry back from the toilet and put it on....I've also heard the crack of heads against the overhead luggage compartment during turbulence.

It was a Russian 777 from Moscow to Bangkok at least 20 people with serious injuries including 3 babies.

That doesn't look good at all. 

Same as many above.  When I'm sat down I always have my belt on.  I've heard too may horror stories over the years like the one omarb said above and this one.

There is a good reason why they often tell you to wear your seat belt even if the signs are off. I always wear mine albeit loosely. I have read many stories like those above, and they are only the ones that make the mainstream press. Many more incidents occur that only get notified to the aviation authorities and reported by aviation related specialist press.

am on a plane at least once a month for work,and I always have my seat belt on --for me turbulence is a way of life and I have certainly experienced some very bad ones --a flight from philly to Washington state comes to mine -people were literally thrown out of their seats.

Better to pay for a fantasy than lose to an illusion

Yep, always on when seated and when lying down, have seen everything not bolted down, including passengers, thrown into the air a couple of times over the years.

I always keep my seatbelt on (albeit a little loosely), even when sleeping in a lie flat seat.

On my last trip, we hit some nasty turbulence, although nothing like the incident today.  I was in business class and it was right around meal service.  They use real glassware, and mine bounced right off of the tray and shattered at the base of my seat.  Since the first thing I do when I get on is kick off my shoes, this left me a little concerned.  Luckily, the FAs came and cleaned it up asap, so no problems.

I always fly with Emirates out to SE Asia, & I'm always amazed at the number of people getting up out of their seats to go to the toilet when the seatbelt sign is on.   I assume its the same on all airlines

The cabin crew are fighting a losing battle it seems

I'm also one that always has my seatbelt fastened when in my seat. Like others, even if its in the lay down seats in the front of the plane.

Better safe than sorry.

What if you get an empty flight and you have 4 seats to yourself -

Lie down underneath the belts. Possible?
