Ladies and Gentlemen, please take your seats and fasten your seatbelts, because on today’s video you’re about to learn a whole of fascinating facts about airplanes, what the purpose is of some of those bits and bobs, and what you should do and most certainly should not do whilst on board! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 10 - Lights Out You’ll notice when you fly, the cabin crew let you know that they’re about to dim the lights and the reason they do this is so that your eyes will adjust to the darkness. In the unlikely event that you will need to evacuate the plane at night time, your eyes will already be used to the darkness outside. Same goes for when you are asked to raise your window blind during the day when landing, so your eyes are acclimatized to the bright lights. 9 - Chicken or beef? Airline food has a bit of a bad reputation, but it really isn’t the foods fault. It more than likely tasted great just before it went on board. According to research, it’s the environment that heavily influences the taste of the food. Noise levels of roughly 85-decibels change the way we taste food. Sweet flavors weren’t as sweet and salty foods tasted much saltier. And to add to that, the recycled air in the cabin is said to deaden your taste buds. 8 - This Way Up There are great blogs written by people behind the scenes of your airplane journey, like things the airline doesn’t tell you, and what the airhostess really thinks of you and here’s something written by a baggage handler. Don’t waste your time putting a This Side Up or Fragile sticker on your luggage, because it makes no difference. The stuff has to fit into a small space, and they’ll make that happen any way possible. However, pop a “I heart baggage handlers” on your bag and you might have better luck! 7 - Limited Supply It’s great that airplanes have emergency air supplies, but what’s not so great is how little they actually last! In case of an emergency, you’re very aware that your oxygen mask will drop from the ceiling, and you need to attach yours first before helping anyone else. However, do it quickly – because apparently those masks only last 15-minutes! 6 - Not taking any chances Take note next time you’re busy finding your seat, and see if you can spot a row 13 or 17. Chances are you won’t find them. A number of flyers are superstitious, and refused to sit in those rows. Although, recently – you’ll find a row 13 on British Airways A320. 5 - Cabin is ready for take-off That announcement will mean nothing to the departed who are more than likely on board the flight with you. Firstly, there is the odd occasion where a passenger literally dies whilst on board the flight. Crew are trained to deal with this, and have even resorted to covering the body up and strapping them in… creepy, right? Singapore Airlines have special corpse cupboards, where they store the bodies. These can also be used when transporting a body to another city or country for burial. 4 - Paint the sky It’s a thing of beauty to see the white lines that often trail behind an aircraft, and it’s really just trails of condensation. Their real name is contrails, and it’s caused from the plane engines releasing water vapour during the combustion process. The hot vapour is released from the exhaust, makes contact with the colder air and turns it into those fluffy white lines you see gracing the skyline. 3 - Age is but a number Perhaps, but would you feel safe flying in an ancient airplane? Did you know that some planes are exceptionally old, but you may not realize it because they’ve had a pretty decent paint job. If you’re keen to see the age of the plane you’re flying in, take note of the registration and look it up on Planespotter.net. There you will find the exact age of the exact aircraft you’re flying in… I think I’d rather not know! 2 - Handle with care We’re led to believe that flight recorders are indestructible, and although they will survive most crashes – they can get ruined. Severe impact or a jet fuel fire can totally destroy it, making the little black box null and void. 1 - Special Treatment You have to respect cabin crew as they really deal with all sorts of people onboard their flight – and it must take a lot of tongue biting to not talk back to some difficult flyers. Turns out flight attendants always know who will be boarding that plane. They know the frequent flyers, the friends of the pilot and the important folk… hence why you’ll find some unsavory patrons being treated exceptionally well.

The Madeiran capital is mainly known for the historic city of Funchal, a popular resort destination and the birthplace of Cristiano Ronaldo. But hold up! It’s also known as the home to one of the most dangerous runways on Earth. Pilots flying into the coastal airport must undergo additional training, studying the approach in detail. Airlines wishing to fly into Funchal require special approval from the Portuguese aviation authority. No instrument landing system approach exists at Funchal, so pilots must navigate the challenging terrain manually. The destination is particularly tough because of strong and highly variable Atlantic winds. Basically there’s mountains on one side and the ocean on the other. As if that weren’t enough, the runway has been extended on uhhhhhhh… stilts!!! The extension has actually been constructed on 180 concrete pillars, each standing 230 feet above the rocky, windswept coastline. It’s kind of insane when you look at it from the side. 9 - Tenzing-Hillary Airport, Nepal Tenzing-Hillary or, Lukla Airport, is a small airport in the town of Lukla in eastern Nepal. The airport is situated in the Himalayas at 9000 feet above sea level. This high altitude often causes difficulty for the pilot to control the landing speed of the plane. The airport is popular because Lukla is the place where most people start the climb to Mount Everest Base Camp. There are daily flights between Lukla and Kathmandu during daylight hours. Well, in good weather anyways. Although the flying distance is short, high winds, cloud cover, and changing visibility often mean flights can be delayed or the airport is just simply closed. The runway is a short asphalt strip. It’s only 1,500 feet long and 65 feet wide with a gradient of 12% from north to south. Because of its size, it can only accommodate small airplane and helicopters. The topography of the runway makes any go-around impossible. At the south, the runway is the end of an angled drop of about 2000 feet! This cliff is fenced off, thank goodness, as a precautionary measure. At the northern end of the runway there’s a huge mountain terrain. Pretty much, this airport doesn’t leave much room for error! The landing plane comes from the north to the south of the runway, so the plane will have go round the mountain and land on an uphill runway. Hey, at least they planned out this one pretty well, because being uphill helps stop the plane before it hits the fence and falls off the cliff! 8 - Barra Airport, Scotland Have you ever landed on a beach? The airport on the tiny Outer Hebridean Island of Barra is actually a wide shallow bay which scheduled planes land, making it a pretty cool curiosity in the world of aviation. The tiny Scottish airport on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean has been voted the world's most stunning landing spot in 2011. The airport is unique, being the only one in the world where scheduled flights use an actual beach as the runway! Flight times are dictated by the tide and the 'runway' is washed away every night, because at high tide these runways are under the sea. The beach is set out with three runways in a triangle, marked by permanent wooden poles at their ends. The aerodrome isn’t licensed for night use, although emergency flights occasionally operate at night from the airport, with vehicle lights used to illuminate the runway and reflective strips laid onto the beach! 7 - Matekane Air Strip, Lesotho Matekane Air Strip is an airport in Lesotho with a 1,300 foot runway that extends to the edge of a 2,000 ft. cliff. Located high in the mountains, take-offs here are NOT for the faint of heart!

If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Mashed When is the last time you stopped at a Subway? If it's been a while, you might not be surprised to learn that 2017 was not a good time for the chain that's been banking on their "Eat fresh" image to get customers through the door. It was only in late 2017 that franchisees found out that business had fallen 25 percent since 2012, and stores were shutting their doors. CNN reported that in 2016, Subway closed 359 locations, and 2017 was even worse. According to Business Insider, that year saw Subway closing another 909 stores across the US, which accounts for about three percent of their domestic footprint. So, it's not entirely surprising there's a lot going on behind the scenes at Subway, and their problems are way more complicated than you might think. So, why did your neighborhood Subway close?
