We’ll that was a bit of entertainment for the ground crew!

Ahahahah 😂 airline? location?

Unsure; it was originally posted by a flight attendant from Long Beach, CA I think. The guy in the hi-vis vest looks like it has the British Airways logo on the back.

It can be done fairly quickly (they just replace the slide rather than repacking it I think). But it depends how close they are to a facility that can replace the parts - so the cost can be extreme because of the loss of time the Aircraft is on the ground.

This will never happen if the door is opened from the outside, even with the slide armed. Hope nobody got inured as this could result in serious injuries.

It’s definitely a Heathrow Gate. By the door, I can tell it’s a 787 and the guy in the hi-vis jacket works a BA. I think it’s a BA 787 aircraft.

From what I have read it is either a BA or Aeromexico 787. Looks more like a BA 787

Turns out it was a BA 787 :)

I heard something similar happened on a United 747 everyone in economy was moved to buisness and first

Turns out is wasn’t actually a BA plane. It is an AeroMexico 787 which was at LHR T4.

Things like this happen more often then you guys think, most don’t even make it into the news. There are some examples that it happened inflight as well.
