Oh my word.

That had to of been a shock to the people on the plane.

Fortunately, it is impossible to open an airplane door when it is at that altitude -- the pressure differential is too great. The flight attendants know this. Something else about him pissed them off.

opening that door would have been an accomplishment only done once in a lifetime----

I love the link in the middle of the story "What happens if you open a plane door during a flight?" the answer to which, after reading a bunch of rubbish about decompression is. . . nothing, because, as Ralph points, out, basically, you can't open an airplane door at any sort of altitude.

Sheesh.

Tell that to Hollywood.
