It is pretty standard for the captain to announce outside weather conditions on an airplane. However, what if they had to do the same for conditions inside the cabin? It is exactly what happened when it started raining inside a JetBlue flight. The strange incident occurred due to the condensation mist coming from the vents, soaking the passengers traveling to New York City. Savannah Gowarty—who goes by @savinnyc on TikTok—shared a brief glimpse of the fog-filled cabin. "It appears to be raining in the cabin," the pilot said per the video. Everyone in the cabin was drenched as the spray from the vents continued. "What is this?" Gowarty exclaimed.

She was soaked and shivering. "Four-hour flight. So cold," the woman expressed. Gowarty set her shirt on the armrest, hoping it would air dry, as the showers inside the cabin continued. She captioned the post, "Nothing better than being on a 4hr flight back to New York soaking wet and cold." The video garnered over 7 million views and 647k likes on the platform. People were quite curious about how could something like that occur. However, Christopher Hennon, a professor of meteorology at Embry‑Riddle Aeronautical University, explained that this is a frequent phenomenon.

"This is just condensation (like fog)," Hennon told Sky News. "The plane was likely sitting at the gate for a while with no engines running, making the air inside warm and humid. When the engines started and the A/C was initiated, the air near the vents cooled quickly and saturated, causing the 'smoke.'" He added, "This is pretty common. I've been on several flights where I observed this. The condensation dissipates fairly quickly as the air inside the cabin becomes progressively drier." People took to the comments to express their amusement.

It's the cold air meeting the hot air. Just like when it's cold outside and you blow air out of your mouth and you can see it." @bingbongburgerbut said, "Thanks for explaining. Read this far trying to figure out why this was happening for 4 hours, not just a momentary flush of humidity from where they're boarding."
