You know, when engine fails, this could be an alternative option. The space shuttle got one, the car got air bags, why doesn't the airplane has one?

Well for one their expensive and would probably increase the cost of tickets.
Their also hard to use for someone untrained who doesn't know how to use them.
Plenty of other reasons

Because the spot for a parachute large enough to bring a plane down safely is already occupied. By Passengers and Cargo.

Hmm, still need improvements if you are about to crash into something, maybe an airbag

That is true, but you could have multiple small parachutes


P.S Like 3 parachutes to land the plane

Because planes don't pause midair when they run out of fuel.

That is true, but space shuttle enters earth at mach 20, and they can land it with 3 parachutes

Drag chutes are only meant to help slow down the shuttles, reducing breakwear and rollout distance. These are the chutes shuttles have. Small spacecraft, like NASA's Orion, land with three parachutes.

Thanks for the clarification, then it is doable, just need an installment on the top of the plane like a shark fin

Airliners generally land on runways long enough to stop on, then they have to taxi over to the terminal, offload passengers and baggage, take on fuel, new passengers and baggage and then take off again. And all the time that the aircraft is at the terminal, other planes are using the same runways, so the plane just can't release the chute when it stops.

Ya, I agree landing and taking off are the most dangerous, that's why you need something like an airbag. For the while flying engine failures, the chute can be deployed, I mean while we are in the air it seems kind of dangerous that we do not have any backup measures.
