Pax Tries To Open Door In Flight ZRH-CPH

Mon Jan 23, 2006 10:14 am

according to the swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, www.aftonbladet.se (swedish only)
A passenger travelling on Scandinavian Airlines flight from ZRH to CPH tried to open the door in the middle of the flight.The passenger was stopped by the crew and few passengers.Upon landing in CPH the woman was greeted by the police. According to some passengers ,it appeared like the woman was trying to commit suicide!!!!

this is unbelieveable. just a day after the incident with Thai Airways at ARN

They need to start putting signs up saying that it's impossible to open the door while in flight. This is getting ridiculous.

As long as it happens in the movies, a lot of people simply won't realize it's impossible to open that door in flight...

Well, she could have tried to open that door, and take down 100-300 other people, but I doubt any human would be able to overcome the pressure differential keeping that door closed.

Was she by chance, apart from being suicidal, also drunk?

Nope, but apparently mental, and according to the newspaper; American.
Read between the lines.

Sound like a good idea, but why does something at the back of my mind think that this could be like putting up a "Wet paint -- do not touch" sign?
