  • How come when you're a passenger on an airplane, it doesn't seem like your going that fast, even if your going over 500 MPH?

    Best answer: You’re going about 67,000 miles per hour as you stand on the surface of the earth. Of course, since it’s relative to mostly empty space, we have no perception of it. The perception of speed in a vehicle is only by how fast the angle of something stationary changes or by vibration of the medium you are moving... show more
    Best answer: You’re going about 67,000 miles per hour as you stand on the surface of the earth. Of course, since it’s relative to mostly empty space, we have no perception of it.

    The perception of speed in a vehicle is only by how fast the angle of something stationary changes or by vibration of the medium you are moving through.

    Planes travel high above the earth, so the angles don’t change very much. You can keep your eye fixed on a town for a minute in a plane while you can see a tree on the side of the road for only a few seconds. In orbit it’s the same thing... you’re going 17,500 mph, but you’re 150 or so miles up.

    Another interesting thing is how we perceive speed of a vehicle passing. It’s based on how many “lengths” it moves for a specific time. Thus a jumbo jet looks like its flying very slowly, but a slower commuter prop plane looks like its going faster.

  • If you are with your partner at the Airport and tell you to a different Security lane other than your partner what are you suppose to do?

    Best answer: Go to the security lane you're directed to. Why would you do anything else? If they want to know if you're travelling with someone, they'll ask.

  • Can a 14 year old fly on a plane “alone” with an escort service?

    Best answer: All airlines have an unaccompanied minor programme. They are very careful. An adult delivers the child to the check in desk and signs the child in.

    Best answer: All airlines have an unaccompanied minor programme. They are very careful. An adult delivers the child to the check in desk and signs the child in. They remain under the supervision of the airline through the boarding process, on the plane and disembarkation. They are then handed over to a designated adult, who must also sign for the child. The essence is that there is constant adult supervision so parents need not worry about the child.

    My ex-wife moved to a different city, so my daughter did a lot of flying. She was allowed to fly alone after she turned 11 but we could have used the unaccompanied minor thing until she was 16. Her mother dropped her at the gate and waited until she boarded and I was always waiting at the gate when she arrived, and the reverse on the way back.

  • Why are crying infants allowed on planes?

    I love flying but I absolutely HATE when I have to be seated near someone with their infant who won't shut up. The worst part is the parent does nothing at all to soothe the kid! Read him/her a story, rock to sleep, or put a pacifier in its mouth. People like that are so inconsiderate. I feel airlines should... show more

Read him/her a story, rock to sleep, or put a pacifier in its mouth. People like that are so inconsiderate. I feel airlines should better policies about this. This is so disturbing to the other 100+ people who wanna get some sleep for their long flight! Anyone agree?

    Best answer: Is having a family and family time difficult for stewardesses? IT CAN BE.

    The first few years you have little control on your shift. You can expect to working weekends.Monday mornings and Friday afternoons and the other 3 days maybe in the day and maybe overnight.

    Your family LEARNS to adjust to your schedule. You have things like child care accounted for 24hrs a day seven days a week. 365 days of the year.

    You do not know for sure exactly what shift you mayhave next week. You do not know if your flight will be delayed, diverted or cancelled. until it is.
    your family learns there are 364 other days of the year to share birthday cake.
    You make your plans a week or two out having a back up just in case you are on shift go to plan B.Takes a while to do this part well.

    After five maybe ten years your schedule gets more regular but still changes a few times a year adjusting for the seasons and passenger traffic.

    You learn to read a book to your child from your hotel room. You snail mail home a Post Card of your adventure that day or some place you saw. More fun on the fridge than an email.
    Maybe you blow out a candle on your cupcake to share a birthday back home.on your video chat.

    YOUR family must adjust to your schedule. You might decide after a few years you want a different position at the Airline maybe one in the local office, a crew scheduler, a trainer, maybe payroll. There are at least 200 different jobs at Airports and Airlines.
    Some remain most of the their time at one location with a more regular schedule.
    Someone told me........
    Do some stewardesses have issues YES, So does any group of females.
    Seriously did you expect to be breastfeeding while serving passengers?The constant landings and take offs are not good for baby.

    You do after a bit get more days off per month than many others. most of these you can be at home.

    It does really help if your family lives near the Airport that you work out of.YOU DO NOT get some priority seating on a flight to some place on your day off.

    Storms anywhere really mess up the works and your family's plans for about a week as the Airline returns back to normal operations.

    You can have a family if you want too. It does take extra effort.
    PS even when at home it might be the spouse work shift the couple part really needs attention too as it can happen you do not see each other much each week.

    IF your spouse works for a hotel chain you have really cheap vacations.to a lot of places.
    DO NOT expect holidays when most others have them. DO NOT expect free seats or the discount hotel rate at the busy time or very popular destination. Lots of other places and times the airline goes.

  • If someone buys a one-way ticket, does that mean they are moving?

    Are one-way plane tickets only for people who are moving to that location or are they bought by vacationers as well? I never really got the point of buying a one-way ticket unless you are moving to that location. Thanks for your answers!
