  1. 90 seconds with how much legroom? FAA faces audit of airplane evacuation standards A federal watchdog wants to know how FAA is updating evacuation standards. The DOT's inspector general's office says passenger behavior and seating configurations have changed. One concern is passengers bringing carry-on baggage with them during an evacuation.

  2. The minimum flight attendant requirements are specified in the regulations and not the standards.
  3. That link to the standards is also incorrect Malcolm... the regulatory requirements are in the link I provided above. Flyertalk is also a good forum to get a sense of service levels.
  4. The Canadian regulatory minimum referred to by Malcolm above is incorrect - that information is for private operators. The airline requirements are: "Minimum Number of Flight Attendants 705.201 (1) No air operator shall operate an aeroplane to carry passengers unless the air operator does so with the minimum number of flight attendants required on each deck. (2) Subject to subsections (4) to (7), the minimum number of flight attendants required on each deck of an aeroplane is determined in accordance with one of the following ratios that is selected by the air operator in respect of the model of that aeroplane: (a) one flight attendant for each unit of 40 passengers or for each portion of such a unit; or (b) one flight attendant for each unit of 50 passenger seats or for each portion of such a unit." http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/regulations/SOR-96-433/FullText.html#s-705.201
