In a heart thumping moment, Jet Airways’ Boeing 777-300ER which was making its way from Brussels all the way to Mumbai actually dropped 5,000 feet before the situation was corrected. Apparently, the pilot and captain was taking a “controlled rest”, while the co-pilot who was supposedly handling the flight controls was too busy with her iPad to notice the descent.

The best kept secret about commercial pilot job is that it's fucking boooooring up there.

That is so scary! I was on a flight once landing at National Airport in Alexandria, VA. We were on our descent when all of a sudden, the nose of the plane pointed up and we accelerated like crazy. All the passengers just froze... Everyone just looked like they were holding their breath. It felt like we almost hit something, but just barely avoided it. It's a strange sensation when you suddenly change direction and you can feel the quick acceleration in the pit of your stomach ---- but cannot see why it's happening.

Big applause when we finally landed.
