This question got voted as a duplicate of this other question.

Both before and after closure it got edited to avoid being a duplicate.

Despite the edits, people voted to keep it closed.

I am obviously biased, having answered it (and that's why I have not used my reopen vote, being a mod it would count for 5), but I can't see it being a duplicate in its current form. Can someone explain why they think it is a duplicate?


1 Answer 1


I didn't vote, but the accepted answer on the older post states two reasons. Reason number 2 answers the question:

[...] moving the crotch strap of the harness closer to the body of the pilot.

A cutout is also present on the A320 as that answer shows.

Basically reason 2 answers the why (function) question. It can be edited however to focus on the decision-making (not the function). But that will also require revising the tone of the new answer.
