Interesting, someone said to me it might have been a Meteor, then I told them, it was traveling at 34,000 ft. and probably flying at over 600 mph... It's possible, but I don't know if any of the passengers said they saw anything punch through the cabin or hit the floor of the plane... Apparently the oxygen mask deployed and the cabin depressurized... The hole was football sized in diameter.

Hmmm, you see the metal bends out-wards ?
Explosives ?? Think if they are using small charges to make holes in these planes ? could be hard to detect after the plane has been blown to bits on impact !

Maybe a UFO shot them down

This is likely from the same cause as the 737 that had similar incident a decade or so ago. These 737 fly short haul routes, so they have more pressurize/depressurize cycles, and more fatigue to the fuselage. Eventually, something gives.

The hole is in the rear of the cabin where the toilets usually are.

Did they serve burritos for lunch?

Ain't had a chance to look properly or blow up that pic but it does look like the metal is bent outwards.. what the hell?

maybe they were hit by a new type of optical stealth plane haha its hard to say what it is if they didn't find anything inside the craft.

Hmm could it have been like a balloon bursting? One small hole, like a bulge then "pop"...

Let's see how much of a cover up the FAA does on this one. They are a terrible organization...

Short video:

Slide show:

The hole looks a little too perfect to have been ripped open.

Any chance it's a small inspection/access hatch?

There are some closeups that make it look like a possibility.

With the overseas maintenance that goes on with many commercial aircraft nowadays a few loose bolts/screws could possibly create large problems not too far down the line.

From what I've read, security at these maintenance facilities are lacking and some of the workers are illiterates....
