Frustrated Ryanair passenger takes emergency window exit, stands on wing of plane

A passenger startled fellow travellers by forcing his way out through the emergency exit after getting fed up of waiting to disembark his flight from the UK to Spain, reports The Guardian.

The man, reportedly a 57-year-old Polish national, tried to get off through the wing of flight FR8164 along with his hand luggage while the plane stood on the runway at Malaga airport.

The ground staff eventually convinced him to get back on board, where he was held until the local police arrested him.

A one hour delay before departing London’s Stansted airport on New year’s Day and another 30 minutes waiting on board after arrival before disembarking seemed to have added to the man’s frustrations.

Fellow passenger Fernando Del Valle Villalobos told Mail Online, “This man decided he wasn’t going to wait any longer. He activated the emergency door and left, saying: ‘I’m going via the wing’. It was surreal.”

Del Valle Villalobos added, “He was sat on the wing for quite a while until the crew managed to get him back inside.”

A spokesperson for Ryanair said, “This airport security breach occurred after landing in Malaga airport on January 1.”

“Malaga airport police immediately arrested the passenger in question and since this was a breach of Spanish safety and security regulations, it is being dealt with by the Spanish authorities.”
