PIA plane avoids accident as woman mistakenly opens emergency door

Over a dozen passengers were offloaded from a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight after one of the passengers accidentally opened the emergency door of the aircraft at Manchester airport, Dawn news quoted the national carrier as saying.

The original flight finally landed at 7.10pm on Saturday, seven hours late, and several other flights out of Manchester were delayed because of the disruption.

Pakistan International Airlines Flight 702, which was prepared for an on-time departure from Manchester to Islamabad on Friday night, ended up being delayed by nearly eight hours, according to the Independent of the UK.

In May, an elderly passenger was arrested and detained in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong for endangering the safety of an aircraft, after he tried to open an emergency exit as the plane sat on the ground.

The startled passenger told airline staff she thought the door was for the toilet. When fellow passengers asked him what he was doing, he told them he "needed to use the washroom urgently and kept tugging at the exit door".

Were you on flight PK-702 to Islamabad? Several other departures from Manchester were also delayed as a result of the disruption.

The airline provided the waylaid passengers with transportation and a hotel stay, according to the statement, but at least one complained in a tweet that their luggage was subsequently left behind in Manchester.

PIA chief executive Air Marshal Arshad Malik had ordered an inquiry into the incident.
