There have been actual crash investigations that noted passengers wearing clothing made from synthetic materials sustained worse burn injuries than those wearing natural fibers:

During the investigation the issue of the flammability of passengers' clothing materials came up. There was evidence that passengers who wore double-knit artificial fiber clothing articles sustained significantly worse burn injuries during the post-crash fire than passengers who wore articles made from natural fibers.[4]
