Or he just couldn't stand to be on an Alaskan Airlines plane anymore.

When are people going to learn that you can't open doors in flight?  I mean that for both the nutjob trying to open them (they at least have the excuse of being a nutjob), AND the people screaming "Stop him!!!"

I wonder where Portland, ORE is.


ORE is a word.  OR is an abbreviation for a state.

Ryan Oelrich told ABC News he was sleeping onboard the flight when he awoke to a "loud hissing noise" and "lots of screaming."

I was thinking the same thing, but then I read that the plane was on approach, so it might be a bit more likely that he could get the door open depending on how close to the ground the plane was.

TSA, full body scanners, no-fly list....all useless.

There's only two changes since 9/11 that really make any difference -- reinforced cockpit doors and the fact that passengers will never ever again sit back and wait for negotiations with the hijackers to commence.  Try to start shiat on an airplane and you'll get a beatdown before the words "everybody be cool this is a hijacking!" get out of your mouth.

It's Alaska Airlines, not Alaskan. It has, in fact, never been Alaskan, as it is based in Seattle.

Can't they find a way to throw such crazies off the plane? Strap on a parachute so he might have a chance and then "Bonkers away!"

Don't involve others in your nihilistic crisis.

They could just let him open the door.

I guess he heard that they were going to divert to Cleveland.

Raise the ticket prices to keep the riffraff away.

It's the AP Standard.   Link.

On a 737 they mechanically lock, a passenger isn't going to override that easily.

They still argue otherwise. Mythbusters should do this one.

Meanwhile, a witness reported hearing a "hissing noise" but I'm betting it's just an attention whore moment.

I've found that any time you think you've raised the prices high enough the hoi-palloi still manage to come up with enough money to be a problem.

It appears as though they do on the NG models (which applies to this one) as well as other more modern airliners. Learn something new every day. Cool to know.

I'm working in an office under the SEATAC approach path watching Alaska Airlines 737's flying by all day, everyday so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

Why the Portland hate? There's some awesome counterculture based there, including a fair number of world-class bellydancers.

Before two-letter state names became standard, Ore. was a perfect acceptable abbreviation for Oregon.

Regional flights only (formerly Horizon), unless you're up front.

No, Portland does not want to be Seattle at all. Our strippers can take all their clothes off.

So, you admit you've never been to Seattle, because you obviously don't know what the hell you are talking about.  Go drink a Pabst and try again later...

Run along, now.  That Ayn Rand novel isn't going to read itself, and I hear the rape scene is really exciting and makes you feel powerful.
