The shuttle pilot's seat has ejection handles. Since the shuttle travels between atmosphere & space, wouldn't ejection would be more dangerous than remaining on-board, both for the pilot AND passengers? Not necessarily so - pilot ejection would still be practical for atmospheric flight, and a sufficiently advanced seat could include a deployable bubble or shell for surviving space or even atmospheric re-entry - In the early 1960s, NASA designed a number of concepts for ejection seats that could be used to escape from a spacecraft in Earth orbit and allow an astronaut to safely re-enter the atmosphere. Passenger or payload recovery would be more problematic. But again, an integrated system of the future might provide reasonable survival capability.
