Darwin isn't always right:

My favourite interview with a passenger - 'The masks didn't come down. Thankfully a brave flight attendant got them down for us. If she hadn't done it, we may have all suffocated on the smoke'.

Genius.

They need to just ban people from flying on airplanes. The human race is just too stupid these days.

I wondered how the OXY masks came down. Aircraft didn't get above about 9,500' MSL. Did the FA badger the pilots to manually drop the masks? Or is there a switch in the back of the A320?

No switch. FA's can individual drop them manually by using a hand tool.

I hear they narrowly missed an elementary school with kids outside on recess.

I hear they narrowly missed an elementary school with kids outside on recess.

It was reported that babies were crying. Sh*t must have gotten real for that to happen.

Another incident, looks like a SW crew had to land a "disabled" 737.

It appears there was a malfunction with the flaps.

"We came into LAX so low and so fast it was eerie," said Mitchell, the vice president of Political Data Inc. and a self-described frequent flier. "We landed ... almost at full speed."

I'll bet the babies were crying on that one!
