    Pretty bizarre. Any of 'us' on board?

    If it was a week earlier I probably would have been :p did they divert the plane bc of his medical condition or is it SOP? not really any way he could actually open the door so would be alright to just cuff him and continue IMO, mid-flight I guess you'd only have an hour or so to ORD left anyway..

    As a public service for those who wish to open the door in-flight, it will not open. To satisfy your curisoity this is what is on the other side of the door:

    I don't get it... it's not even like it's some crazy 20 hour flight or like there's a gremlin on the wing. You can't sit still for a couple of hours, maybe have a drink or something to calm your nerves?

    I can understand some people might have issues with flying, and thankfully I've never been in the situation where someone does something stupid in-flight, but like I said in that other thread, if you get wild and I'm nearby, I'm gonna kick first and ask questions later.

    That might very well be... but even if you're a first time flyer, you have to know that you have nowhere to go for 2 1/2 hours on that flight. You're in the tube, so prepare yourself and take some xanax or whatever.

    And you're always reading about "that guy" that went Macho Man Randy Savage on somebody... I certainly don't mind scissor-kicking somebody that's trying to open the door, even if it won't open. :)
