AA had A300 MIASJU take severe turbulence over NAS. Flight continued on to SJU with some pax taken to the hospital...1 critical. Question I had was that if the aircraft was around NAS (Nassau) why continue on to SJU (San Juan) when MIA (Miami) is closer? TW had an accidental aft ventral stair deployment in flight from St Louis to San Antonio. These are the same stairs used by the famous DB Cooper hijack and parachute jump. Apparently member of cockpit crew was tethered and opened rear bulkhead door into the open stairway to actuate the stair closing mechanism.
