now that I will have to be flying alot more due to my job, I have a couple quick questions....I could look them up online but its better to get feedback from people who been thru it all.
lets say I am running late...and coming down the ramp and RIGHT AT the door as they close it....say I'm too out of breath to shout....is it a myth that they absolutily cannot open it once closed? I mean if I ....literally...am there the milisecond it closes...can they just pop it open quick and scoot me in?
and lets say...at a small city airport, not a big one.....I get my luggage checked in...and it gets on the plane....and via some security incident or somerthing I get to the gate seconds after they close the door....would they fly with my luggage on the plane...but not me? in this day and age of terrorism...wouldnt it be in their best interest...to let me on the plane to essencially connect me with my luggage as it were rather than a pilot taking off knowing there is luggage...in the bowels of the plane..not with a passanger? wouldnt that possibly make them hold the plane if I was right at the gate even though they closed the door because personally if I was a pilot..I would want to make sure that person who had luggage on the plane is there with it. and if it did fly without me, would the airport it lands in hold it for me?
remember I am flying out of a small airport....syracuse,ny, not a large one.
also...and this is a bit cheeky....but I have to ask....is there any "tactic" anyone has tried...a ploy if you will, to change the mind of the crew to re-open a door and it was succesful? you know, like say...something...X and they were taken in by it and did something they usually wouldnt do like call the pilot and say...hold up hold up..can you let this guy on?
any help with these would be much appreciated as these might be an occurence I might face.THANKS!
