A 20 year-old man, who was also a first-time traveler, sparked mid-air panic amongst his fellow passengers when he was apparently looking for the bathroom and attempted to open an exit door. The incident occurred early Saturday night, on GoAir flight 149 travelling from Delhi to Patna, between 7 p.m and 8 p.m. “People asked him why he was doing so (trying to open the exit gate). He told them that he needed to use the washroom urgently and kept tugging at the exit door. The FA and other passengers detained the man after his attempts and was watched closely.
When the flight landed, he was detained and taken into police custody. Later that evening, he was released from the airport police station, as the officers found truth in his side of the story.
Even though this was extremely dangerous, he wouldn’t have been able to open the door due to the aircraft being airborne and cabin pressure. Still, this was very dangerous. Although I do hope someone was able to escort him to the restroom and he didn’t have to hold it for the remainder of the flight. In all fairness, it was his first time travelling, so it is understandable.
