Flight secrets: Why you should NEVER say this to an airline pilot

Previously, a flight attendant revealed why passengers should avoid complaining about turbulence.

Speaking to MailOnline, Belinda said: “As much as I wish I could summon the powers of the earth, I cannot predict nor change the inclement weather happening in the atmosphere around us.

“We don’t know how long turbulence will last.”

Writing in his book “How to Land a Plane”, author Mark Vanhoenacker explains the troubles he’s faced as a pilot.

He said: “Most of us think of airports as quite well-lit places and it’s truth that the apron areas around the terminal buildings are often brightly illuminated.

“Close in, thankfully the approach and runway lights are unmistakable.”
