It seems like a 30-minute delay may be too much for some passengers. On New Year's Day, as a Ryanair flight waited to release its passengers, a passenger decided to take matters into his hands and escape the plane.
'I Am Going Via the Wing'
A passenger startled other passengers, pilots, and flight attendants on a Ryanair flight from the United Kingdom to Spain. After getting frustrated with the wait to exit the plane, the 57-year-old Polish man grabbed his carry on luggage and ran over to the nearest exit as the plane sat on the tarmac at Malaga Airport. Though he was able to open the plane's emergency exit, the man ended up temporarily stranded on the plane's wing.
The man's sudden decision to exit the aircraft was triggered by the 1-hour delay before boarding the flight as well as the 30 minutes wait to disembark. The passenger who sat next to the man told MailOnline, "It seems nobody noticed that the man who decided to exit the plan was suffering from asthma."
Maybe you have been in a situation like this. You are tired after a long flight, and you are eager to have your feet back on solid ground. Yet, forcing your exit out of a plane may not be the best answer.
