- On any given day, more than 87,000 flights travel through US.
- "The safest place to sit on a plane is in the middle of the back. Not too close to the exit because the people there get sucked out. And also because the planes often break in half. The front is the least safe. Which makes sense -there’s no way airlines could charge extra money for the safest seats" (Via, Via).
- It would be impossible for someone to open the exit doors while the plane is in flight because of the pressure.
