I have.felt the same way when encountering turbulence in private jet or commercial.
I just think “Wish the window coukd be opened if we crash. Sure would save me the trouble of fighting over the top of everyone else and trying to push the confused person out of the way, who can’t seem to fighre out how to open the door and toss on a seat....”
I was right. Read the story and he was talking about his wife’s situation. AND it was a joke.
