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

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

The plane was already delayed an hour when the man opened the emergency exit and even after his little stunt, passengers were still forced to wait another 30 minutes, the Sunday Post reports. After various delays in the flight from London's Stansted Airport, the passenger, who has not been named, used the emergency exit to climb onto the wing.

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 United Kingdom to Spain, reports The Guardian.

The man allegedly became frustrated when the plane was delayed by nearly an hour leaving Stansted on New Year's Day.

We've all been pretty fed up with air travel at one point in our lives, but none of us have ever gotten to the point of one Polish man who made a decision to climb out of the plane.

Spaniard Fernando del Valle Villalobos, who got out his phone to record the dramatic moment Mr Graczyk exited the packed plane, said: 'He came from the front of the plane and seemed to be asking people very politely to let him past.

"I was astonished", del Valle, 25, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. He activated the emergency door and left, saying: "I'm going via the wing".

Later, he said the captain came out and asked the man why he had done it and del Valle heard him say clearly that he was sick of waiting inside.

Other passengers said they believed the man suffered from asthma and was anxious about a possible asthma attack, and that he needed air.

The man was later found to be homeless and without a permanent home, according to the Telegraph. The address he gave police was a homeless hostel in Malaga, where he has apparently not lived at for a year.

'The Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency (AESA) are the state body which has to decide the size of the fine but the maximum fine is EUROS 45,000 and my feeling is that this breach will be considered as one of the more serious types'.

It is not clear when he will be told how much the fine is, and his dire economic situation makes it unlikely Spanish authorities will ever get any money out of him.
