A woman passenger mistakenly opened the emergency exit door of an aircraft thinking it was a toilet. The incident occured aboard a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight.
Thankfully, the national carrier said, the plane was on the runaway of the Manchester airport when the woman pressed the button, opening the emergency exit door.
“The PIA flight, PK 702, was going from Manchester to Islamabad. The flight was delayed by seven hours. “The departure was delayed on Friday night when a passenger erroneously opened the emergency exit causing the emergency chute to activate,” said a PIA spokesperson.
After the incident, about 40 passengers were offloaded along with their luggage as per standard operating procedure (SoP).
The PIA said that the passengers were provided transportation and hotel accommodation and later on adjusted on other flight.
IA chief executive Air Marshal Arshad Malik ordered an inquiry into the incident.
