all the studies I have seen only consider the 8000ft. Probably it happens too rarely that there is a loss of cabin pressure (and we are already discussing problems that appear in a tiny fraction of a percent of the cases). Also I don’t think the consequences of loss of cabin pressure are that severe, people with good health should be pretty much unaffected by it for the time it takes the plane to go down to safe altitude.

And I am still waiting for the announcement that „in the unlikely event of sudden loss of wifi connectivity CAT6 cables will fall from the ceiling“.
