I was on a plane once between Denver and Wichita that lost cabin pressure. The seal blew out on the rear door. The captain happened to be talking on the microphone at the time. When the pressure went, he paused, then we heard him say "Oh, Sh--". Immediately, the plane went into a steep power dive. The captain kept it in the dive until he got down to 5000' then leveled off, then continued on into Wichita. I recall lots of people praying during the dive.
When the pressure went, my ears popped like crazy and the O2 masks deployed. We were not at a high altitude, so I don't think anyone passed out. The air leak was slow enough that the pumps in the plane could keep some pressure.
That was my one and only incident in a plane and I have taken hundreds of flights. Have never lost luggage, either.
