He must've been desperate to get back to Bmore.

Well that proves he's insane right there.

Heroin withdrawal?

I heard that it is impossible to open an emergency door in-flight.  The pressurization of the cabin prevents it from being opened since you have to pull the door out towards you.  Never wanted to test that.

I've heard that everyone has one of four innate responses to extreme emotional stress: Fight, flight, freeze or freak. Sounds like this guy is in Section 4.

Correct. It is impossible to open cabin doors because of the pressure. Also the doors are larger than the openings in the fuselage. Ever notice that on the safety cards in order to open the door you have turn it sides ways to get it to fit? So simply unlocking it won't do anything.

Memphis to Baltimore on Jet Blue is the east coast equivalent of Phoenix to Reno on Southwest.

Flight obviously wasn't doing it for him.

I was on a flight where a bunch of rowdy girls teenagers from some teenage sports team had obviously been underage drinking a lot and were all over the cabin running up and down, climbing over seats, throwing up and I about lost it when they started farking around with the emergency door latch.

Air Tran is no worse than any other airline.  I like them better than Delta.

Why the AirTran hate? That was my carrier of choice until Southwest scarfed 'em up. Sweet biz-class upgrades.

Except this was AirTran, not JetBlue.  But don't feel bad.  I am *constantly* doing that when talking about one or the other airline.  I always mix the two up for some reason.

I will say that no one turns around a plane faster than Southwest.   Usually board about 3 minutes after the last passenger gets off.

I heard that Thailand was hiring Trannies as air hostesses, but I didn't know that they already had their own airline, Air Tran.

Key an eye on the Trannies. They are plotting to take over the world.

They may kidnap you and hold you for ransom for one million (pinky finger to lips) Baht.

That's about $31,629 US Currency.

I assume that means they don't clean it, which is gross, but all airlines suck these days so meh.

Yes. The seats are still warm from the last guy's farts. At least they're leather. United had to move me to first class on a full plane once since my seat was soaked with urine (and no, I did not find out until a moment after I sat down)

Hell of a lot better than US Airways.  When AirTran has empty first-class or business-class seats, they fill them up before takeoff with free upgrades for first time customers and military.  When US Airways has empty first-class or business-class seats, they have a flight attendant stand guard to make sure none of the plebs are getting uppity without paying the upgrade fee.

WS: Stewardess, there's something ... on the wing.
AH: That's an engine, sir.
WS: The engine! It's on fire!
AH: That's your reflection, sir.
WS: I can't stand ... the suspense ... I am ... going ... mad!
AH: Please sit down, sir. Return to your seat. Sir!
WS: Help me! Help me! I have to get ... this door open.
AH: Sir, we are flying at 35,000 feet. If we open the door, you'll be sucked out.

AH: Let me help you with the door, sir! Thank you for flying Quantas! Buh-bye!
WS: Aiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ... iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ... iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie!
AH: I lose more passengers that way. Takes off little bonnet, reveals rabbit ears. Aint' I the Dickens?

For inside the country, AirTran is great. They are cheap, on time, and if you're business class, you can get absolutely sloshed for free. No airline treats me as good as AirTran for the price, by far.

Southwest, however, is a farking torture chamber from hell. Its amazing they continue to do these things to their passengers.

/cheap though.

If the flights over 90 min and you can afford the extra 60-70 bucks, I'd upgrade.

Question for Fark/TF legal-eagles: I caught this at the footer: "Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed."

So, is either Fark, or this little website WTOP, violating that copyright?

I'm much more familiar with print copyright; digital goes right over my head.

Thanks in advance for any light shed on this :)

IANAL but fark publishes nothing, only links to it, and WTOP is a Washington DC radio station...I think they likely are paying members of AP.

Actually, this is a pretty stupid question why are you asking?

This. Just to elaborate, they are built like plugs, wedge shaped.  The small difference in psi between the pressurized cabin and the outside pressure as 20,000+ feet make it impossible to open the door mid-flight.

Very very very bored at work (25+ minutes between tasks), and this sparked some curiosity in me.  I had assumed that places like radio and TV stations are paying members of the AP, but I figured I'd ask since it's an assumption on my part, rather than something I can say I actually knew.  Cheers nonetheless mate!

It's a short flight, about 100min gate to gate. The worst I've experienced was an ANA flight in coach class from Chicago to Narita. Those seats were tiny!
