726: Seat Selection
Title text: Don't click on the wing.
Many airlines give passengers the opportunity to select a preferred seat when booking a flight. In this case, Megan appears to be checking in at a kiosk at the airport when she is given the opportunity to select a seat. Rather than selecting a seat on the diagram, Megan clicks on the pilot seat (which is not an actual option for online seating reservations). In the last frame, we see that because she chose the pilot seat she is now permitted to fly the plane. A worried looking pilot stands (or sits) behind her.
The title text says to not click on the wing. The implication is that if you click on the wing you will be forced to sit there. Even if you were able to hold on, this would put you above the Death Zone which is at 7 km. Standard cruising altitude is 10 km.. It will be an unpleasant death as the air is so thin that you actually lose oxygen to the air.
Another interpretation of the title text is a reference to the classic Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.

- [Megan is in the cockpit of the plane, holding the yoke, with the pilot looking horrified behind her.]
