|Quoting Wdleiser (reply 20):|
I believe it was a 767 at MIA, had an emergency landing because of an indicated engine failure, the FA rushed to the door before the plane was depressurized, opened it, and was sucked out and died.
|Quoting CORULEZ05 (reply 25):|
Something similar happened on a CO flight somewhere in Central America I believe.
|Quoting PVG (reply 5):|
They can do it for mini-vans, but not for a $100 million airliner? I can't believe that the electric motors would that great of a weight penalty?
|Quoting UA777222 (reply 28):|
When a simple re-enforced dead bolt door costs an airline $20,000,000 a pop I don't even want to think about how much a motor door would cost.
|Quoting Aer Lingus (reply 31):|
You won't probably die if you fall out a Boeing 737 because the aircraft is lower than Airbuses A32X.
|Quoting Aa757first (reply 34):|
I assume very little. The B767 features electric assist at door 1L and the L1011 features electric assist at all doors except the auxiliary service doors, 3L and 3R.
I know several flight attendants and M/X staff who have said they have never seen an L1011 door go MX.
