"Steward-death", Way to Die #701, is the fifth death featured in the Season 4 Premiere "The One About Dumb People Dying", which aired on February 8, 2011, and the fourth death to be featured in the Death By Request: Special episode, which aired on October 24, 2011.
Valerie, an extremely irritable flight attendant and she was ready to retire after eight years on the job, and this was her last and final flight. She served peanuts, pretzels, and any other foods or beverages on the plane she was in. Due to turbulence, the pilot informs the passengers to fasten their seat belts. Valerie ignores the plea, and gloats at one of the passengers. As soon as she started gloating, the fuselage of the plane cracked, and Valerie was ultimately sucked out of the plane. Unless one has their seat belts buckled, one can expect to be sucked out of the airplane. As Valerie was falling to her death, due to high force winds, extreme cold, and lack of oxygen, she died before she hits the water of the Pacific Ocean, sending her to hell where she belongs.
"The passenger buckled up, but the real turbulence was inside the plane. Valerie had them ready to blow their tops, and then...the plane beat them to it."
