I'm sure they're used to getting pissed on by the people in first class.

I'd hate it more if the jet started flooding at 100 feet under ocean. Airport '77

I loved the description of it being the scariest thing she had ever seen.

Lady, you live a sheltered life if water in the aisles of a jet is scary.

If you got me on a plane, much less the 14 hour flight variety, and this happened, I would freak the fark out.

Well, they at least know where this plane's at.

If water running down the aisle of your plain directly after a flight attendant explains that a water pipe has burst and your plane is being turned around is the "Scariest thing you have ever seen" then you probably could do with a few 'scary' experiences in your life anyway.

Yeah, I would be worried about the weight? Could the plane carry all that weight and would I drown if the plane filled up with water.
 
2014-07-03 12:22:01 PM  
Couldn't they just open the door and sweep the water out?

Or just pull the drain plug? Don't all planes have drain plugs?

Not sure if serious, but if a plane in flight starts to have problems with water in the cabin, chances are the water was A: already aboard the plane, and thus wouldn't dramatically change the weight (though could change the weight distribution, which can be bad), and B: not in sufficient quantity to completely fill, or even partially fill, the cabin.

Travelers were settling down for the 14-hour journey when water began leaking from the upper deck

Silly peasants, that isn't water, that's spilled 1%er martinis trickling down to you from Business Class. You probably didn't even appreciate it.

Just open the escape pod hatch and have the pilot fly with the nose up so all the water drains out. Problem solved.

The water was already in the plane. The weight would remain the same. It's the weight distribution I would be concerned about.

I'd be more worried about it getting into electronics that don't like to get wet...

Oh sure, that's what they want you to believe. It's a not so closely held secret that planes "scoop" fresh water out of the clouds. Why do you think the world's been suffering from drought for years?

You're thinking of devices that "scoop" energy out of the air, invented by prominent Republican John Galt.

You're all missing the obvious: The liquid was destined for the plane's chemtrail. With so much coming into contact with the passengers, they are all going to turn into reptiloids in the next 24 hours! STUDY IT OUT!

These are the kinds of people that see duct tape on a ripped seat and think the aircraft isn't airworthy.

While I'm sure that's scary as hell, it's not that big a deal in the end.  It's not like a plane carries enough water to fill the cabin.  That would be rather impossible.

Did they find tennis balls clogging the pipe?  I imagine they told the travelers in coach it was a burst pipe; but we all know what it really was.

Don't let the naysayers detract your opinion.

Many people would.  Even seasoned MMA fighters.

Why?  Because unlike when faced with other, more serious dangers, in this instance the individual has absolutely NO control over his or her fate.  Even in firefights one has some control.

But this?  What control is there?  How much trust and faith do you have to have in stuff one knows little about?

Anyway, you can freak out.  It's okay and you'll be a bit stronger after.

CSB time: Was on a 747 midway from Hong Kong to London about 20-30 years ago, and a burst pipe in the rearmost economy class toilets (clean water, thankfully) started a flood back there. Flight attendants reseated the back few rows because their carpet was soaking wet and there was an inch or so of water sloshing around on the cabin floor behind them

I was in the cockpit jump seat at the time, and the co-pilot went back to take a look, but couldn't figure out where the water was coming from. He and the pilot decided it wasn't a big enough problem for a diversion, so we continued on to our destination as was, but IIRC they had passengers moved further forward to help with trim due to the weight of water that had collected at the back of the plane.

FTFA:A spokeswoman for the airline said the captain decided to return the A380 to Los Angeles due to passenger discomfort, rather than any fears about safety.

Because we all know that sensitive electronics that control the plane that are between floors and under floors are really waterproof. Last thing I want is some servo getting fried that controls the vertical stabilizer.

Ok lady, just park the drink cart next to my seat and go away!

A bet Andy Gibb's song  (Love Is) Thicker That Water from the album Flowing Rivers was the Qantas theme song for that flight.

Sensitive electronics are protected. They aren't going to shirt because somebody spills a 2L of Pepsi.

I either forgot a comma as in A bet, or I should have said I bet, not A bet.

Either way, wrong.

Would have been preferable to the flight I just endured. Flew into Orlando today. When I decided between fly and drive, I didn't notice the holiday....

The kids were not actually terrible. The adults were. It seemed like every single passenger bum rushed the jetway trying to board. When they tried to explain the concept of boarding by sections, nobody understood. They actually had to use airport staff to herd the idiots out of the way so those of us who knew how this shiat works could go sit down. And God forbid anyone obey the fasten seat belts sign. In heavy turbulence. With the cabin crew literally yelling at everything single idiot who couldn't hold a piss for a 90 minute flight.


AND OF COURSE NOBODY GOT UP AT ANY POINT WHEN THEY WERE ACTUALLY ALLOWED TO DO SO.
