QF 11 LAX-JFK has been holding for almost 2 hours.. that is amazing to me. Finally heading to DTW, just south of London (Ontario, Canada). That's going to have a domino effect on all the flights for Qantas back to Australia. I would not be surprised if passengers on this flight from JFK are kept on...

Re: Girl dies after opening a/c door in Madagascar

It's a strange story. She'd have to first unbuckle her seatbelt, then lift up a big lever to unlatch the door, then push the door open, hold it open quite wide against the airflow to give herself enough space to fit through and jump out. I don't think that's something that's easy to do by accident....
