Actually, you are supposed to wait until the plane has crashed into the ocean, and you are out of the fuselage and in the water to inflate it. If you don't, you will not be able to swim out of a sinking fuselage because you will be stuck to the ceiling due of the flotation of the life vest.

As to the OP question, I haven't a clue.
