RE: Aborting A Take-Off

I had an aborted take off once -- starting rolling and was probably more than 50kts when pilot breaked hard. Obviously people were a bit alarmed. He came on and said a warning light appeared about a door being open, checked, no problem, took off and that was that.

RE: AC Emergency Landing

I somehow suspect it's a little more than just somebody getting a bruised arm.

Could it be because 4 FAs were injured enough so that they might not be able to perform their duties in case of an emergency, thus the plane needs to land and get a new crew?
