Well, partly because our planes cost many, many millions of dollars and are designed and built by people who know what they're doing and the planes have to meet a whole bunch of very rigid requirements, where the auto-inflate key floats are made by a guy in China in his living room.
And partly because a slip neighbor bought one not long ago, his keys fell in the water, and the auto-inflate float didn't do either one.
