Some curiosities about airplane flights

16 Dec 2019

Now travel is simple and an alternative at hand almost for everyone, doing it by plane can be a little more expensive but it is the fast and safe way to reach remote places. Even so, when you travel by plane between different countries you could face situations that if you don't know them would surprise you. Here are some curiosities you expose yourself to while traveling by plane

Water
The quality of unpackaged water in commercial airplanes is on the table of many critics. It is recommended not to ask for water unless it is bottled and also be careful with drinks such as coffee or tea, made with water. No one could assure you that the water in the airplane is harmful, but it is logical that over the years the containers do not maintain the same health characteristics.

Captain
The ultimate authority within an airplane is the captain. It is not surprising that in an abnormal situation it is the figure of the captain who appears to deliver a solution. They are also qualified to perform emergency marriages. At least in Spanish airline flights, although this situation has not been experienced for years.

Taste of food
At 10,000 meters above sea level, the food tastes different. The lower humidity of the cabin dries out the nasal passage and the lower atmospheric pressure changes the sense of taste. That's why cooks prepare dishes with more salt and spices to enhance the flavors. Are you hypertensive? Be careful.

In-cab lights
Contrary to what is thought, when the crew dims the lights of the plane they do not do it so that you sleep better, but to prepare you for an eventual accident and that your eyes are prepared to be guided in the darkness. It is also true that there are hostesses who will invite you to sleep to get in tune with the changes of schedule and especially when you fly from west to this long distance.

Open door
The force you should use to open an airplane door in mid-flight is inhumane. It is impossible for a passenger to open that door. The explanation lies in one of the basic principles that allows travelers to fly over 10,000 meters without harm to their health: pressurization. So don't worry, movies tend to confuse us.

Our intention is not to scare you, but we don't recommend you to wait for the next catamaran between New York and some European port in the style of the young Norwegian environmentalist Greta Thunberg, no.

But if you have to be cautious with the basics such as credit cards that work, medical insurance at origin with international coverage, mobile phones with roaming and know the requirements at destination to enter especially Asia and Oceania.
