6 Airline Travel Myths Revealed Mike Richard June 4 What We're Reading This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure.ABC News lists 6 Airline Travel Myths, including whether opening a door midflight can be done (it can’t): There are a couple of reasons for this, but the big one is cabin pressure which, in effect, seals the doors shut. Plus many aircraft doors are “plug-type” in design meaning the doors are bigger than the opening unless they are rotated.
