Flight delayed after passenger mistakes exit for toilet door

Female passenger mistakes exit door for toilet on PIA flight

She accidentally opened the exit at the back of the plane instead of the toilet, and because the doors were in "armed" mode, the emergency evacuation slides were automatically deployed. It wasn't the bathroom door she pulled open, though: It was one of the emergency exit doors right next to it, which triggered the emergency chute to activate outside the plane.

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight 702 was due to fly from Manchester, UK, to Islamabad, Pakistan, on Friday but suffered a delay of seven hours, according to the airline.

In an apparent attempt to beat the queue to disembark, the passenger, identified by his surname, Song, opened an emergency door near his seat after his flight landed.

A female passenger on board a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane mistakenly opened the emergency door of the plane taking it for bathroom door.

The airline did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The flight, bound for Islamabad, was set to take off. "We strongly urge passengers to follow security instructions as such mishaps result in inconvenience of hundreds of other passengers".

Data from FlightRadar24 indicates the flight eventually departed the Manchester Airport at 4:59 a.m. on Saturday, more than seven hours after its scheduled departure time of 9:20 p.m.

The startled passenger told airline staff she thought the door was for the toilet.

Air Marshall Arshad Malik, PIA's chief executive, ordered an inquiry into the incident.
