Pilots and Flight Attendants Confess the 21 Dirty Secrets of Flying
Flying can make up a huge part of our lives, especially if it’s a part of your profession. The following question was asked on Reddit sometime at the end of last year:
Flight Attendants, Pilots, or Engineers, what are secrets that passengers don’t know when you ride on planes or things you can get for free from the cabin or crew?
There were many responses, but the following 21 tips were the ones we found the most interesting.
1. The truth about oxygen masks.
“That if the oxygen masks drop down, you only have about 15 minutes of oxygen from the point of pulling them down. However, that is more than enough time for the pilot to take us to a lower altitude where you can breathe normally” – jezalenko
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
