Whether you’re a frequent flier, or have flown at a passenger aircraft once it is in your life, here are five things you need to know about the passenger planes.

A man who suffered an anxiety attack aboard a British Airways flight to Saudi Arabia and had to be restrained by cabin crew and passenger service — that a dog’s entourage, after the opening of the cabin door in the air.

The passenger, who was not identified, had reportedly left his seat about an hour before landing in Riyadh on Monday, shouting, “I want out” and are trying to pull on the handle of the cab door near the back of the plane, The Guardian reported.

The passenger was reportedly struck by a panic attack on board the aircraft, only an hour before the scheduled landing in Riyadh, kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Man’s activity has led to concern among passengers, including the brother of a British boxer, Dillan Whyte, who was en route from London to Riyadh ahead of Dillan in the undercard for the fight at the Diriyah Arena on Saturday. As a member of the cabin crew, as well as the other members of Dillan’s lack of reacting is good.

“It was like something out of a movie,” Dillan’s brother, Dean, Whyte, told the Guardian. “When I got there, he was shouting:” I want to get out in broken English. I managed to grab him and was preparing to slam him as hard as you need to, but for myself and the delivery driver was able to see that it wasn’t quite right in the head, so I just held him and tried to get him to calm down. Eventually it worked out.”

Ian McNally, one of the other travellers, who for the first time, tried to stop the panic of passengers, and said he remembered the sight of Dean, who is 6 feet tall, 7-inch, which will come to the rescue.

“I was very relieved when I saw him rush to help,” McNally told the Guardian.

In a statement shared with Fox News, British Airways have confirmed that the passenger was suffering from a panic attack during the incident.

The passenger was later returned to his seat, where he remained until the flight landed in Riyadh.

After the incident, British Airways has stated that there was never any danger to the other passengers. Experts say that it is not possible for a person to physically open the cabin door on a pressurized aircraft in midflight, at least not without some sort of hydraulic jack.

“It’s physically impossible,” Jason Rabinowitz, an aviation blogger, shared Travel + Leisure, from a human being to be able to open a cabin door on the aircraft.
