British tourist told yesterday of his flight of terror when he claims an emergency exit on a superjumbo blew open at 27,000ft.
David Reid and his son Lewis feared a bomb had gone off after hearing a ‘massive explosion’ two hours into their flight on the brand new £250million Emirates Airbus A380.
Freezing air blasted in and the cabin pressure plunged after the door in business class came an inch and a half ajar, leaving a gaping hole, said Mr Reid
He said: ‘We were about two hours in when suddenly there was a huge blast.
‘It was a real shock, so loud that I thought a bomb might have gone off. Air was gushing into the cabin like a gale.
'The stewardess jumped up and stared at the door. Her face was drained white.
'She ran up the aisle, grabbed the intercom and started screaming, “The door’s going to go, the door’s going to go!” Then she hid under her chair.
‘Other passengers were crying and saying “We’re going to go down, we’re going to go down

There have been an ALARMING amount of failures and reliability issues in recent years occurring on the Airbus A340 and A380 airliners.
Airbus should be greatly ashamed with the constant failures occurring on their aircraft. Fly a Boeing folks. Sadly it may be wiser to choose a Chinese made airliner over the Airbus. Pathetic.
