Here's a video interview with a passenger on the flight.
I think the video is self explanatory.
My take on this, after seeing this video, is why the apparent desire of AirTran to down play what happened? And clearly this man's account is from a frequent flyer who is believable. I have pretty close to 3,000,000 actual air miles and had a few minutes when everything gets real quite and you listen closely to what the Flight Attendant is saying. But never anything like this.
My only comment would be that I an uncomfortable with his assessment that this wasn't a deliberate probe to see what would happen.
