Each profession has its own dark secrets (well not so dark secret most of the time) which are well hidden from the passengers at large and may prove scandalous if it comes out in the open. Here are some of the secrets from airline employees which we would otherwise never get to know, even if in our famous airlines!
1 Not all minor failures are recorded and reported
Now this might sound scary for the passengers as it has potentiated effects. But in reality the sheer number of safety checks is enormous, depending upon the priorities for flight and security. Still these minor glitches do not directly affect the safety of the flight and the passengers and are dealt with later carefully.
2 Why are there hands grips inside the plane doors?
These grooves are meant for flight attendants in case of air turbulence and serious weather problems during the flight. Most of the time panicky passengers end up in a stampede and flight attendants have to safe guard themselves by securing themselves by these grooves which helps them to stay upright.
3 Is it true that Captain and Co Pilots are fed differently?
Yes in case of an eventuality when one of the captains is poisoned then the co pilot has to take over the control. Though it has not happened in the new history but precautions are always taken to this day.
4 Locks do not protect the luggage in the cargo
