What if the guy was just going for some fresh air?

You gotta do what you gotta do! Kudos to the attendant for saving the whole flight a boat load of trouble!

After 9/11 passengers are willing to stop anyone misbehaving or risking lives on an aircraft. It’s just what we need for everyone’s safety in the air.

He’s one tough guy, taking on a good amount of people before being subdued…like hell :/ opening an emergency door in mid flight…now you’ve lost it

There is plenty of time to get some fresh air when you leave the house for the airport, that’s if you’re one of those people who gets up early and organised for their flight.

Sir did you mean “wilin.” 🤣

Out of all of the things they could have used to subdue him, why did they choose a wine bottle?

It was quality wine. Brewed specially for combat action, that’s why only one of the two bottles broke. And legend says that the grapes used were planted by Hercules himself.

I think the only thing that was going through that guys mind at the time was “Free Skydiving!”

There’s not a lot that can be used as a weapon on a plane. Considering he was punching people in the face and also hit someone else with a wine bottle, it seems that was the most logical course of action. Multiple people couldn’t subdue him, so he must have been pretty strong.

Should have let him try open the door, it’s impossible to open door while in flight. That should confuse his peanut sized brain.

At lower altitudes, it’s possible to open the door. Fortunately, he only disarmed the door and it was not opened. At cruising altitude, you need 3 tons of force to open the door. At lower altitudes, there isn’t a pressure differential and it’s fully possible.

The door has safety locks in place while in flight so it’s still impossible to open the door while in flight even if the pressure is low.

MaxSez: let’s keep in mind that an airliner in flight is pressurized, and the escape slide on the hatch is unarmed until manually armed by the crew or the hatch springs to the safety. If the hatch latch is engaged/uncogged the hatch will blow energizing the slide which will unravel inward, the safety lock will keep the hatch air tight. Unpressurized on the ground the slide will blow inward with great force. Either way Bad JuJu.

(When a cheery ramper with AmWest, I blew a hatch on an A-320 and got a Slide in my face. It hurt and I was battered and bruised for weeks.)

Alcohol is known to make people pass out, but not like this. Well done to the flight attendants for their quick thinking to incapacitate the guy.
