    Daily Fail Reports: Blankets, Pillows & Gaffer Tape Are Proof Against Air Pressure

    Aircraft sufferers decompression: "...air was rushing into the cabin like a gale..."

    Curtains are a soundproof security screen: "...He said cabin crew closed the curtain between business class to stop those in the economy cabin below discovering what was happening..."

    Here is what really happened - http://avherald.com/h?article=45dcf5b6&opt=0

    Lots of things wrong. The aircraft would have not been at 19,000 feet for a start.
    If it really did happen the passengers would be able to breath.
    If a metal door had a hole appear pillows and blankets are not going to hold it together. If there was a hole these would surely blow out?

    Oh and the door indicator I'm the picture isn't one at all. It's used to tell the flight attendants various information.

    As usual, the Daily Fail choosing the most terrifying 'facts' and overlooking reality in favour of scaring the ever-living-doodah out of everyone due to fly on Emirates...

    Ta for the link FN-GM, I read the first section and thought, hang on, air would rush out of the plane due to the pressure difference not in!! Thought I was going nuts. Never let the DM make you mis-trust your sanity!!
