Airport atheist, only pray when there's turbulence
A nod to the term “There are no atheists in foxholes”, which means that in dire situations people start believing in a higher power. In this case, the dire situation is the plane’s turbulence, which could end in a crash.
It’s also an analogy. He is saying that he only prays when there is turbulence in his life or when things are not going his way. This makes him an airport atheist or he only beliefs in god when shit is getting real. Powerful line that describes a lot of people today.
