Re: Dog manages to open a 737's hold door

737 have plug type doors. At 13,000 ft the pressure difference is so high that the door can not be opened - even if the aircraft would be pressurized on ground and you tried it from outside.

Re: Did the A320neo deliver 15% fuel savings?

I only know values out of the time NEO flyes within Germany.
Compared with the CEO without sharklets there was 15% less fuel burn (11% engine and 4% sharklet).
With longer flights the savings do increase.

No, we are talking about the same thing. The OAT is limited because higher OAT produce higher case drain temperature. This can escalate to hydraulic system overheat. By lifting the overheat warning level you lift the max OAT where the aircraft can be operated.
