In fact and many scientists have proven, aircraft is the safest means of transportation. Behind a smooth, smooth flight, there are 1001 things to do to ensure safe and accurate operation.
But much of what a visitor knows about how a flight operates is just superficial, no matter how observant or how often he flies.
There are five secrets about flight safety that airlines often don’t want to disclose, but passengers can still find out if they pay attention.
In general, airlines always try to ensure the safest for travelers, and sometimes we “do not know” it will be better.
1. Secrets about the darkness in the cabin
In long-haul flights, night flights, flights through bad weather, the pilot will reduce the light in the cabin to make passengers adapt to the darkness.
In that case, assuming there is a bad case, it will be easier for customers to find an escape route instead of falling into a situation of sudden power outages.
2. Why can’t the aircraft be 100% filled with materials?
The planes are not filled with the material chamber for each flight to reduce weight and save costs.
So when the weather is bad, the pilot can land the aircraft at the nearest airport to refuel, fly around the bad weather.
3. Things to do when preparing to take off
Opening a window, folding a dining table, standing up the back of a chair, tying a seatbelt when an airplane is about to take off and land are four mandatory requirements, repeated several times on each flight.
The reason to stand up back of the chair, fold the dining table in front to make it easier for passengers beside you to escape if the aircraft has a problem.
Opening a window helps the rescue force on the outside to quickly locate the victim inside the aircraft, and passengers can also actively observe problems outside the fuselage.
4. Do not let food fall on the tray
Sometimes because there is not enough time, some airlines will not be able to clean the food trays for customers before serving, especially on connecting flights.
So, do not let food fall on the tray, or put fruits, candies on the tray, who knows how much bacteria they contain?
5. The carpet on the plane is horribly dirty place
Similar to food trays, flight carpets on the floor are also one of the rarest sanitary items.
You just imagine that, any shoe traces, pour milk tea, children’s urine, food fever, vomiting … Even, people are told not to barefoot on the plane is also because of that.
