a man who fell onto a suburban London street as a flight from Angola began its descent in 2012.

It's raining men. Can I get a hallelujah?

mike_d85: SF to Fresno?

Congrats, you managed to get both airports wrong.

WTF is up with people getting Fresno in this story?!? Flight originated in Silicon Valley, not Meth Valley, and went to Maui,

I miss military transport. Wish I could still do it. Say, $100 anywhere in the US one way. No seats, no reading lights, no air waitress, no interior comforts. Just walk on the unfinished interior of an aircraft with your luggage. A crew member lashes all the bags down to the floor someplace while you find a place to sit on a mesh bench and put earplugs in.

It's really loud, so nobody tries to talk to you. No hustle and bustle of bags going in and out of the overhead. No waking people up when you step over them to take a piss  - just take a nap and wake up where you want to be. Less illness, everything is metal and nylon, so they can just pressure wash to clean, (the carpet and fabric in commercial is, well, nasty.) Plus, you can stretch your legs all the way out, or even lay flat out if the passenger load is light.

Know how when the plane arrives and people are crowded in the aisle and hunch up under the overhead, with everyone frustrated? Don't get that with cargo flights. You can stand up and walk around. No waiting at baggage for the belt to start - pick your stuff up and go.

It's ironic that you go to the airport, get in a Q to check bags, then go through security and sit on hard benches for an hour or two, just to sit on an uncomfortable, but stylish, aircraft seat to be served crap food by someone burned out by routine.

Hell, I'd fly the wheel well for $25 - just give me a jumpsuit and oxygen mask.

If Little Johnny Runaway's wheel well trick results in me getting probed by some TSA hamfist determined to make sure I'm not smuggling hobbits up my ass, I'm going to find him and beat him.

First of all, it doesn't seem like anyone knew he was a stow away until after they landed. Secondly, I'm pretty sure a flight from Fresno to Honolulu is just about exactly 5.5 hours.

Please stop using these 3 words in this sequence.

Thank you.

Simon said security footage from the San Jose airport verified that the boy from Santa Clara, Calif., hopped a fence to get to Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45 on Sunday morning.

Hey, that's great. He was caught on camera and everything, but still able to play ding dong ditch with the landing gear.

Remind me again why the TSA won't let me bring a bottle of water on board or say hi to my friend Jack, loudly and from a distance?

Great security there airports. If a 16-year-old can hop a fence and get on a plane what's to stop a terrorist from doing it? Answer: Nothing.

Meanwhile for the rest of us inside the airport......
