Greed, I suppose!

They have parachutes for Space Shuttles, Russian Space Capsules, and
people, but none for airliners. Airliners often get into trouble, and
when they go down, they go fast down enough to kill the people inside.
It seems to me that 4 or 5 parachutes attached to strategic places on
an airplane's structure might stabalize and slow the airplane to the
point that the people could survive, even though the aircraft would
not be usable again.

The parachutes could deploy something like airbags in cars, and/or
could be deployed at the press of a button by the pilot. After a pilot
has lost control of an aircraft, wouldn't he wish to survive the

Why is it their attitude that if they lose their airplane, they don't
care what happens to the passengers, as well as the flight crew?
