# Couldn't airplanes have more emergency exits?

Being near an emergency exit improves considerably the survival chances after an accident. Why not put one exit at every 5 rows?

• The flying public has indicated that they are very interested in ticket price, but somewhat less interested in the safety factor. So if I'm getting a deal on the fare, I don't care about getting to my destination? Ironically, that is true. – Farhan Jun 8 '15 at 14:26
