Chances of getting sucked off on an American flight increase


Bookings have trebled on Southwest Airlines after news emerged overnight that passengers faced the very real possibility of being sucked off.

But as news came through of a mid–air engine explosion causing a window to break, the surge in advanced bookings began to fall away.

Prospective air passenger, Peter Thape was quick to initially book a seat with the airline, neatly choosing the 35 minute flight from Boston to JFK.

‘I’m having a real problem getting my money back, since I cancelled this morning,’ complained Mr Thape.

‘I’ve been married quite a long time,’ Thape added.
