But isnt cabin depressurization something that does not happen often? Is ti considered serious or is an engine failure more serious?

Air drama story shot down in flames
The Standard
Monday, February 18, 2013

An engineering professor says it defies belief that a door on an aircraft could blast open at 8,230 meters, which supposedly happened last Monday on a Emirates' A380 flight from Bangkok to Hong Kong.

William Wong Kam-fai, a professor in the Chinese University of Hong Kong's faculty of engineering, compared such a situation to a car plunging into deep water, with outside pressure making it virtually impossible to open a door from the inside.

If a door mechanism was faulty, he said, "an alarm would have sounded in the cockpit before takeoff."

British passenger David Reid, on the flight with son Lewis, 18, claimed freezing air flooded into the cabin and pressure plunged.

The noise when a hole of about four centimeters was punched outward, he said, was "so loud that I thought a bomb might have gone off. [A] stewardess jumped up and stared at the door. Her face was white. She ran up the aisle, grabbed the intercom and screamed `The door's going to go."'

Then, he told Mail Online, flight attendants used blankets to block the hole. An airline spokesman rejected the story, saying a door could not open in flight. There was no loss in pressure, but "blankets were placed around the door to abate a whistling sound. At no time was the flight in jeopardy."

Hong Kong aviation officials have no knowledge of any such incident.

The story is complete BS and has been blown out of proportion by the media. There was no emergency, it was just a faulty door seal which is alarming but not dangerous.


The door certainly did not open by 4cm.

Lufthansa might order 2 more A380s, it's unknown if it's options converted or new order.
It hasn't been confirmed by Lufthansa yet.
