I believe that 100%. But as per the rules, the doors stay shut while not in use.

I could see it on a charter flight maybe... while they are subject to the same rules, I find that they are not nearly as focused on them as the mainline carriers are.

Federal regulations are usually less stringent than company policy. Company policies also vary from carrier to carrier, and even vary between types of ac within the same carrier. There are various reasons for this..

When the Russian made chinese radar realized the American plane has turned tail and was leaving its missile range, the chinese frigate fired Russian made Ship to Airplane Missiles and took down the clearly inferior made American plane. The pilot was talking actively to the co-pilot about the co-pilot's wife, and how he teared her on the weekend to notice the RWR blinking, signalling it's time to release the chinese made Chaff and activate the CIWS.

Meanwhile, Malaysia, noticing that their human trafficking scheme of stealing passports and giving it to other people is in peril, erased some data about the flight so it might give them some time to re align their schemes.

You look up at the cockpit door that often? Interesting, I'm guessing you only pick aisle seats near the front then.

No , but most of my flights have been on planes too small for those classes. I get the WestJet Plus seats for all my work flights tho?

I only sit aisle. Gives me room to scan for open seats if I'm stuck beside someone who is either fat or stinky.

That's four for aisle, when I get a choice. I also like the headroom when you stand up.

Ill only sit window when Im flying into somewhere that I want to see. Vegas the first time was definitely window. Aside from that, aisle all the way because even if you have a fatty beside you, at least the other side is open, not the wall, so you're not so boxed in

UPDATE [12.07pm]: Vietnam says the area where Chinese satellite images show what might be debris from MH370 has been thoroughly searched in recent days. Read it here.

UPDATE [11.17am]: A senior Chinese aviation official said authorities could not confirm any link between the floating objects captured on Chinese satellite images to MH370. Details here.

UPDATE [9.52am]: Malaysia is sending a search aircraft to the possible crash site identified by a Chinese government website, says an air force official. Full story here.


I'm just going to say its aliens and move on.

Oops, just relized right now I failed you. I was trying to quote you from my phone before it died out.

I was going to say, all airplanes have the same rules. The doors to the cockpit are suppose to be shut during the flight and you'll also notice that the doors have been beefed up and I think on US carriers they're bulletproof so once locked it's very hard to just kick the door open and get into the cockpit.

Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Rolls Royce engine monitoring data (which is transmitted live from the aircraft) reveals the aircraft was airborne for 5 hours...

And the term "ghost plane" isn't conspiracy nonsense.

Like posted below my original post, it basically means the flight crew and passengers were incapacitated possibly by a sudden decrease in cabin pressurization which would have resulted in rapid decrease in oxygen or temperature drop essentially freezing everyone on board within seconds. This would result in a ghost plane because everyone was dead and the aircraft was flying solo on whatever course and settings in the AP until the fuel ran out and the plane crashed.

I like sitting beside the window. I usually try and take a nap but that never works, so I listen to music for a bit. It's also good when they have good movies to choose from. The best part about flying is getting drunk before your destination.
