    @Fox, I have over 2500hrs each on Boeing series and A320 series as Captain. I know how the doors open on both the types. But trust me and read their manuals. Doors can be opened at altitude easily. I had accepted two brand new A-320 from Airbus Industry and also test flew them on behalf of my airline with Airbus Test pilots. I know what I am talking here.

    Keep the Appeal to Authority bullsh*t you yourself. I couldn't care less about your claimed experience.

    Show me, don't tell me. I'm not someone who takes anyone's word at face value, let alone some random person on the internet I can't vouch for. Based on what I've seen from you on this forum so far, I don't believe you one bit. Same it for someone else 'cause you wont find a sympathetic ear from me.

    Let us debate. What is your point? That door can't be opened during flight? Pls let me know what your queries are. I will scan the original FCOM of Airbus and Boeing and paste here. I have them in my library. Lady, even I do not know who you are but let me tell you, you may not have lived as many years in forces as many as I have spent on the inverted side of a loop in fighters. Go and get some help lady. Don't cross the path of your pop.

    Arent all aircraft doors plug doors that are self-sealing with the pressure difference at high altitude ?

    Yes they are, but what can you do if someone goes and tries to open them? FYI, the R2 door is the least bomb damage door location for A-320.

    I think door opening would be feature. What if at non decompression altitude someone had to open the door for some emergency? (smoke?) . Not referring to an airbus but there is at least one incident where a thief seems to have parachuted out with stolen money never to be found again.

    I remember that news, that thief stole money from passengers onboard plane and jumped off plane using a homemade parachute,his body was found later after that parachute failed,this incident was from somewhere in 2000 and 2001 in Thailand or some East Asian airlines i think.

    No offence. Opening a cabin door at Flight level 360 should be impossible. Isnt that that the basic function we have for the plug type door assy's we use for modern aircraft including A320?

    Good day!

    I remember an incident in the US, said it happened decades ago in the 60s. Guy jumped off and was ever heard of again.

    As far as I know, after the guy jumped off they installed Cooper vanes which prevent the opening of doors during flight.

    Once the door is unlocked in flight, it can fly off anytime. In A320, in case of reject Take Off, the cabin is kept at a slightly higher pressure compared to outside to aid in quick opening of doors for pax evacuation.
