"A massive fireball rolled through the cabin"
This theme seems to be common to every single aircraft accident that doesn't involve an instant break-up.
It occurs to Voice that airplane seats should include a heavy fireproof cloak with a valved pipe to outside air. In emergencies passengers could
wrap this cloak around themselves and (when below 10,000 feet) if the pipe is working breathe through it.* Under ordinary operation the cloak would form part of the seat cushion. A simple modification of existing instructions could keep passengers protected until they can leave, if exiting is possible: add the following clause as bracketed. [If no one is in the isle beside you] start moving toward the exit.
optional: make the cloaks so they can be removed from the seats; include a dust or gas mask
*The emergency oxygen system isn't deployed in the case of fire.
