When flying with airlines, in the air on an airplane, do you ever contemplate what are the best-kept secrets of airlines? Do you think the airlines that operate our flights are doing their best to look after us? Here are 10 of the best kept secrets that the airlines don’t want you to know.

Featuring... Electronics - You get on a plane, and immediately start watching a video you’ve downloaded to your device. Then as you’re about to take off, the crew tell you that you have to turn it off. You’re not using wifi or mobile data, surely there’s no problem? Surely you’re not going to make plane crash? Well, you’re right. Sneaky airline business tactics - Flying millions of people around the world is big business, and airlines do everything they can to maximise their profits, often at our expense. That bit when they come round with the Sky Mall trolley, filled with spirits and perfume? Pets - Some people like to take their pets on holiday, so they load them into little cages and they go on the plane, in the luggage hold. Pilots' Food - In the classic comedy film Airplane, when everyone, including the pilots, who have eaten the fish get sick from food poisoning, chaos and hilarity ensues. The truth about the oxygen masks. - During the safety briefing, assuming you’ve turned off your electronic device, you’ll hear that in an emergency, oxygen masks will drop down. These lovely yellow masks will help you breathe normally at high altitude until cabin pressure is restored. What the airlines don't tell you is that there is only 15 minutes' worth of oxygen in those masks. Don’t worry too much though. 15 minutes should be more than enough time for the pilot to get the plane to a lower altitude, where the air is breathable. What you need to remember is that from the time the masks drop down, you’ve got between 15 and 20 seconds to put it on before you pass out. If you have kids put yours on first before you do theirs. Happy landings - Ever wondered why, if your plane is landing at night, they dim the lights in the cabin when you’re about to land? That's because if the landing goes wrong and they need to evacuate the plane, your eyes are already adjusted to the darkness. You’ll be able to see better you leave the plane, instead of blinking and rubbing your eyes. Pilot power - When you’re on land, you’re subject to the laws laid down by your democratically elected leaders, hopefully. But once those planes doors are shut, you’re in the pilot’s world. He or she is in charge. The captain of the plane can arrest people, issue fines, and even take the will of a dying passenger. Don’t mess. The bathrooms - OK, now on to some very unsavoury business. Whatever you do, do not drink the water in the bathrooms. It’s filthy. The airlines regularly clean the water tank with sanitising products, unfortunately the parasites that call this tank home build up resistance to the chemicals. So they stay there. While we’re on the subject of plane bathrooms, bear in mind that they can unlock from the outside. There’s usually a catch under the ‘No Smoking’ sign that can open the door in an emergency. When things go wrong - Data shows that things go wrong on flights more than we think. At London Heathrow, they get an emergency landing about once a week. Yet if you’re a passenger, you may never even know it’s happening. Communication between the cockpit and cattle class is strictly on a ‘need to know’ basis. Sleep - Pilots’ working rules state that they can be on duty for anything up to 16 hours at a time. That’s a long time, much longer than a truck driver for example, is allowed to drive in one sitting. As a result, it’s not uncommon for a pilot to have a quick nap while flying the plane.
Right so of course the thumbnail is click bait but it is technically true kinda. On the long haul flights in big planes like A380, the flight can sometimes be too long for just two pilots and a navigator as they would become exhausted, increasing chances of accidents so longer flights (15+ hours) will have another pair of pilots which take over halfway through the flight while the pilots on break have a quick sleep.
Also the myth that turning you phone off does nothing is false. A phone giving off a signal can interfere with comms on the ground and during taxi as similar signals are used in the radios. Yes, a lot of passengers don’t put their phone on flight mode, it does make a small difference which is why phones can’t give off a signal as the radio signal for comms is disrupted more when more phones give off a signal. The pilot can still speak with the air tower but it won’t be very clear which can lead to a mistake. Thank you and Godspeed.
#10 is bullsht
Edit: #9 Sherlock Holmes
#7 It's not in every airlines
5# Omg they use autoland only in serious dangerous situation
And non of these are things that "airlines doesn't want you to know"
And btw in #10 is serious reason because if in plane is 200 phones connected to internet then those plane radars are flipping
Its funny how "airlines dont want you to know" this information, so logically either the title is wrong because you have clearly gotten this information from somewhere,
Or option too, you are not stating the truth, maybe a combination of both.
I thought the low fuel was simply for the landing weight? Just cause you can pick up 200 pounds and carry it up a ladder doesn’t mean you can jump from that ladder with said 200 pounds without breaking your legs, if you land with too much weight it causes more damage in the landing gear
I knew about the dead bodies on airlines but not the organs being transported. Well at least that's for a good cause. Transporting dead bodies.... I don't know if there ever is a good reason for that....I won't argue with that.
what about the part about when you need to go into the brace position in an emergency, the position is meant to brake your neck cause it's cheaper on the airline to pay for your death than a life time of medical bills since your paralysed
When Macmillan talked about the wind of change, he was referring to the desire of African nations for their independence. But he might just as easily have been talking about education in England, where many concerns - about the extent of underprivilege, the need for a more child-centred style of education in primary schools, the unfairness of the selective tripartite system of secondary schools, and wider access to higher education - were now reaching a climax.
Tory education policy.
In his book The Making of Tory Education Policy in Post-War Britain 1950-1986 , Christopher Knight argues that in the period between 1950 and 1974 the Conservative Party failed to fashion an educational policy in line with Conservative philosophy (Knight 1990:3).
However, the beginnings of a Tory education policy can be seen, Knight suggests, in One Nation - A Tory Approach to Social Problems , published by the Conservative Political Centre in 1950. It was written by nine members of what became known as the One Nation group of Tory MPs, including Edward Heath, lain Macleod, Angus Maude and Enoch Powell, who were committed to preserving the church schools and the private sector, to defending the tripartite system, and to opposing what they saw as the enforced uniformity of comprehensive education.
In his contribution to One Nation , Maude wrote: The modern insistence on humanising teaching methods . must not be made an excuse for abandoning the traditional disciplines of learning . We deplore the present tendency to drag down the brighter children to the level of the dull ones (quoted in Knight 1990:12-13). It was perhaps unsurprising that the Tories should have spent little effort in developing a coherent education policy in the early 1950s because, when they regained power in 1951, the overwhelming need was for more school places to cope with the rapidly rising birth rate. Oversize classes (forty or more pupils) and inadequate buildings were the dominant issues for politicians, civil servants and parents alike . A wider vision of schooling was not yet developed
