*This man is sleeping, not dead.
Weather you’re trying to join the mile high club, illegally smoking, or just poopin, it’s impossible to lock yourself in the bathroom. There’s a switch flight attendants use before take off and landing to stop the doors from flying open. They can use that switch anytime to come in and bust you.
In a survey by the European Cockpit Association, between 43 and 54 percent of pilots surveyed admitted to having fallen asleep while flying. What’s worse is a third of those said they’ve awoken to find their copilot was also asleep!
Because the dry air saps the water from your body, you lose approximately 8 ounces of water an hour.
Flight attendants only get paid for the hours they’re in the air.
Due to the stresses of travel, decreased oxygen, and mild hypoxia one experiences at altitude, you’re more emotional when flying. In a Virgin America study, 41% of men admitted to crying at in-flight movies. I, too, have cried while watching “Mission Impossible” on a plane.
