Female passenger on board PIA flight opens emergency door mistaken for toilet door
ISLAMABAD - A Female passenger on board PIA flight opens emergency door mistaken for toilet door and spread panic.
A woman, aboard a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight, sparked panic on Saturday after she mistakenly opened the emergency exit door thinking it was the toilet.
The national flag carrier’s plane was on the runway at the Manchester Airport when she pressed the button, opening the emergency exit door.
Consequently, aircraft’s airbag shoot opened and 37 passengers had to be off-loaded from the aircraft, *Express News* reported.
The Islamabad-bound PK-702 flight, which was about to take-off from Manchester, was delayed for seven hours owing to the incident.
When the woman was asked why she had opened the emergency door, she said that she thought it was the toilet.
Authorities say that the plane’s airbag shoot had opened by mistake due to lack of PIA staff the day earlier.
