Flight Attendants Reveal Secrets Of Flying And What It’s Really Like Working For An Airline

The Oxygen Masks Have A Time Limit

Oxygen masks in an aircraft will deploy when cabin pressure falls below a certain point, but more often than not this point never comes. If it does, how long will it allow you to breathe?

There is about 12 to 15 minutes of oxygen in these masks. It doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but it is. If you find yourself in a situation that warrants the use of these masks, just try to relax and breathe. The pilot and his crew are working to get the plane to a safe altitude where you can breathe without them. So don’t worry, but pay attention to the training session that the stewardesses give. Besides, you will be annoyed when you learn the truth about extra luggage!
