And due to the lack of communication, we had no way of knowing what was actually going on. I looked at my seatmate to check on her. She seemed cool as a cucumber.
The world's scariest (real) in-flight announcements
I realized I was in the presence of a genteel badass. The south is full of these women. After about 20 minutes, we landed. And everything was fine.

I also accepted that if there were other reasons, I would never know them. In the terminal, I texted my younger brother. He was sympathetic for exactly 90 seconds.
There was no time to reflect; I had to catch a connecting flight. Had to keep moving. Had to get to where I was going: Los Angeles, city of dreams and guys with thriving life-coaching practices. The plane took off. We landed in Los Angeles without a hitch. And I went home to my neighborhood, with its palm trees and pretty little old houses and rich folks and homeless folks and everyone in between, the renters and the buyers and the stars and the nobodies like me.
When have you faced your fear? And then we bounced off the ground. A strange calm settled into my belly. Three thoughts came quickly, but without fear. I jogged to the plane, the last one to board.
Please refresh the page and retry. A potty fellow passenger makes a beeline for the emergency exit and yanks the door open, sending themselves, and any unsecured trolley dollies and holidaymakers, spinning into the stratosphere. That nightmare almost became reality last week, when a passenger in first class attempted to open the cabin door on board a Delta Air Lines service between Chicago and Beijing.
The crew managed to restrain him - but not after a struggle - and he was arrested once the plane touched down.
But are our fears founded? What would have happened had he been successful? Should someone actually manage to open the door of a large passenger aircraft at high altitude, the cabin would lose pressure — extremely rapidly — and chaos would ensue. Even instances of slow decompression, of which there are an estimated 40 to 50 a year, can be fatal. In a Boeing operated by Helios Airways crashed, killing all passengers and crew the deadliest air disaster in Greek history , after a gradual loss of cabin pressure.
The lack of oxygen at 30, feet left the crew incapacitated, and the plane — on auto-pilot — slowly ran out of fuel, before plunging to the ground. In such instances, oxygen masks with enough oxygen to last several minutes should drop from the ceiling to stave off hypoxia a lack of oxygen, which leads to sluggish thinking, dimmed visions, unconsciousness and then death.
In the cockpit, the flight crew will don their rubber masks and begin a rapid descent to a safe altitude — anything below 10,ft mountainous obstacles notwithstanding. Sudden decompression, which would occur if a plane door was suddenly thrust open, is another matter. Anyone standing near the exit would be ejected into the sky; the cabin temperature would quickly plummet to frostbite-inducing levels, and the plane itself might even begin to break apart.
In , an Aloha Airlines flight also a Boeing with 90 people on board was en route to Honolulu, cruising at an altitude of 24, feet, when a small section of the roof ruptured.
