So apparently this is becoming a thing, and people clearly need a guide inside airplanes. A passenger on a UK-Pakistan flight at Manchester Airport caused severe delays after opening the emergency exit door in an attempt to reach the bathroom while the plane was still on the ground.
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight 702 was due to fly from Manchester, UK, to Islamabad, Pakistan, on Friday but suffered a delay of seven hours. Seven hours for someone opening an emergency exit, and this was BEFORE take off. Talk about an inconvenience!
In May, an elderly passenger was arrested and detained in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong for endangering the safety of an aircraft, after he tried to open an emergency exit as the plane sat on the ground. And in February 2018 one of the emergency exit doors fell off a Dana Airlines plane as it landed in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.
People please be careful, I don’t know how you miss an emergency exit–but stay alert on the plane. Thank goodness they were on the ground!
