Man Tired Of Being Treated Like Human Sardine Tries To Escape His Captors

March 30, 2009

It is surprising that this does not happen more often.

Robert McDonald, of Glasgow, was charged Monday with reckless endangerment and criminal tampering for opening an emergency exit hatch as the plane waited out an hours-long delay due to bad weather, prosecutors said. Flight attendants stopped him from fully opening the door and activating the emergency chute, they said.

Flight 149 pulled back from the gate just after 5 p.m. but was delayed on the taxiway for more than 2 hours due to bad weather and congested skies, common issues at JFK. Around 7:45 p.m., McDonald, who was traveling with his wife, lost his cool, prosecutors said.

When the airlines treat people like sh!t, they shouldn’t be surprised when their customers’ behavior stinks.
