We made it three days into the new year before we got our first “stupid airline passenger tricks” entry.
At the conclusion of a flight from London to Madrid, a passenger got tired of waiting to get off the plane, so he opened the emergency exit and sat on the wing, a move that didn’t get him any closer to his destination.
The Ryanair flight was an hour late departing London, the Telegraph reported.
The man was arrested.
