On Sunday, a JetBlue plane flying from Boston to Baltimore was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia after the flight crew smelled smoke in the cabin. It was an abundance-of-caution type thing, and no one was hurt.
Then, on Monday, an AirTran plane flying from Baltimore to Austin, Texas, was forced to land in Memphis, Tenn. Some guy (who, I’m assuming, was also smoking in the bathroom on the JetBlue flight) tried to open two emergency exits, which are conveniently located throughout the cabin in case you need to create an emergency mid-flight.
By the way, the man, who may or may not face charges, was successfully restrained by flight attendants. No one was hurt.
