Well, we HAVE had "water leaks," and those can be uncomfortable and disconcerting.

Back when I began flying commercial (1950's), when the plane would begin to taxi, in the humidity of the Deep South, USA, the fog would pour from the vents, almost obscuring the cabin.

Now, for something different, how about http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0417148/ ?

Now you need to pack an umbrella and gumboots in your carry on.

Planes malfunction sometimes. It happens.

I've been rained on in a plane. Tropical humidity, and as mentioned above, when they shut the doors and start the A/C, the plane fills up with fog. It condenses on the ceiling, big heavy drops. They shake loose on takeoff. Rain.

I figure they're designed for that.

I once was sitting on a Garuda plane with my umbrella open. There was simply too much condense water dripping from the aircon vent. The umbrella did the trick and the purser eventually offered me a seat in C class.
