What is the typical temperature for an airplane at 34 000 feet?

Between 30,000 and 40,000 feet (9,000 and 12,000 m), the cruising altitude of most jet aircraft, air temperature ranges from -40° F to -70° F (-40° C to -57° C). Modern aircraft have sealed cabins and heaters to protect pilots and passengers from wind blast and cold air.

At what altitude do you pass out?

Sea level to 10,000 feet cabin altitude — no problem. Above 10,000 feet cabin altitude — most of us will go unconscious above 15,000 to 20,000 feet. Above 10,000 feet, with the yellow emergency oxygen mask the airlines provide (or any supplemental oxygen supply not provided under pressure) — no problem.
