Aircraft door safety devices

Due to differences in air pressure, it is usually not in fact possible to open an airplane door during flight at normal cruising altitudes, despite what you may have seen in the movies. This goes for all doors of an aircraft, including emergency exit and main doors. You could fuss with the opening mechanism as much as you like, but you wouldn't ultimately be successful.

Interfering with the operation of an aircraft is a criminal offense in some regions, however, so you may be penalized for touching the door during flight.
