Well, it will be possible to evacuate the A3XX Dino in 90 seconds, but
by using also the exits in the upper deck (like on the 747-300 & -400).
But it is certain that in such a case, the passengers evacuating via the
upperdck exits will suffer much more injuries, so the target is to
evacuate whenever posible through the main deck exits.

So long,
