thanks for information

is it enough to help, a parachute equipped on a jet plane like boeing 737 800 etc

I don’t think the concept scales well. The cutoff is somewhere short of the Antonov 225

What about individual parachutes, like how they have flotation devices at each seat…I’ve always wondered why they don’t have them for everyone!?
