Well, here we have an idiot wanting to go for a cigarette mid flight:
Perhaps they should have opened the door and let her out.
Aircraft should come with little disposal chutes for passengers like these. That and screaming children. I used to fly transatlantic with monotonous regularity, and after the indignity of being prodded and poked at security, treated like a criminal by immigration, the last thing you need is some fruitcake trying to open the door mid flight.
These people scare me.
