Through his social networks, Cimato explains some of the lesser-known curiosities about how airplanes work inside. In one of his latest videos, he revealed the reason behind these beeps and their meaning depending on the number of times they sound.

He says a single ‘ding’ means that one of the passengers has called the cabin crew from his seat or from the bathroom. On the other hand, a ‘ding-dong’ means that those who ask for assistance are not the passengers, but the pilots.

Finally, reveal that there is a signal you have never heard and will surely never want to hear: the triple ‘ding-dong’. This means that the pilots are alerting the flight attendants of an emergency.
