Which Planes on Your Routes Are Haunted?

Which Planes on Your Routes Are Haunted?
Meg Butler

I spotted a spooky story on Reddit yesterday featuring a flight attendant who’s pretty sure that one of the planes on her regular route is haunted:

Flew on a 717 tonight- during service, I felt someone walk up behind me very fast and thinking it was a passenger headed to the lav I turned around to assist them… but no one was there.

Happened at least 4 times and I wholeheartedly could feel footsteps on the floor very pronounced, and could literally feel someone behind me.

I had a few cabinets of safety equipment that were definitely latched, come open on their own. Sani wipes fell onto the floor from virtually nowhere.. and I could hear a hissing/faint whisper coming from above me on my jumpseat.

I normally wouldn’t think too much into it but my crew member on the opposite side of the plane also had similar experiences and actually heard a “PSSSST” but no one was trying to get his attention. Just an odd experience all around, and now my interest is peaked. Now I’m in my hotel room just feeling uneasy.. lol. What are your weird experiences?

And there were a few responses.

One flight attendant said that they were pretty sure that they knew the plane that OP was talking about, “the MD-88 that had an uncontained engine failure and killed a passenger.”

Another brought up just how likely it was that someone passed away on the plane that you’re on, especially one that has flown for a few years for different airlines. How likely it is that that plane is now haunted remains up to speculation but is something that I’ll probably ponder the next time I board.

A third flight attendant said that a Captain died mid-flight on a 747 that she regularly flies and “flight crew will see people outside the flight deck door on their cams, ask the cabin crew to move them and the cabin crew will report there isn’t anyone around. I’ve heard this one a lot actually… We had a Captain die mid flight in the bunks so the rumour is it’s him, but who knows.”

 

Spooky.

But I’d love to hear from the frequent fliers, captains and crew on FlyerTalk: do you have any scary plane stories to tell in the dark? Let us know in the comments’ section!

    Absolutely none. So sad that anyone would think this or, even worse, write about it!
