I was reading some posts on a question about being able to open doors in a pressurized cabin while in flight, and something caught my attention. On one post, a person said that it is standard procedures for some majors to descend to a certain altitude and crack the door open in order to get some air flow. Is that true? If so, can someone explain how this is done? Is it just as easy as it sounds? Thanks!

Maybe that was standard practice at Pan Am in 1933, but its impossible in a modern airliner.
