Egyptair - air rage incident

Post by crewmeal » Fri Jul 19, 2019 6:26 am

Caught this clip from FB. It seems on an Egyptair flight from Amsterdam to Cairo via Bucharast, a woman who boarded at Bucharest and spoke no English refused to move from an emergency exit then spat at the sky marshal. It all kicked off from there.




Not your typical low cost booze related flight for once!!

Air rage seems to be on the increase, and I can't help but wonder why that is.

I thought the ineffectual efforts of the guy trying to block the person videoing the episode quite funny. :lol:

Looked quite terrifying to me. Thank God they were still on the ground.

A follow up to this with a little more of an explanation. Shame they put a BAC 1-11 in the picture instead of a 737!.

Looks like it was not Egyptair

This from egypt today news:

A video has gone viral on social media platforms showing an Egyptian national was treated violently and harshly by Romanian security guards on board of a flight coming from Bucharest to Cairo

After a quarrel broke out between the Egyptian passenger and the flight crew, security forces from Bucharest Airport interfered and handcuffed the passenger, forcing him violently and harshly to get off the airplane, according to the video that stirred up Egyptians’ anger on social media.

The flight passengers expressed their rejection and discontent of the inhuman treatment against the Egyptian national, which caused an old lady got tired was in need for an emergency health aid. Children on board reacted to the treatment with hysterias screams, while another passenger was asking all travelers to get off the plane bound for Cairo.

The Egyptian Ministry of Migration contacted with Egyptian ambassador to Romania Salah Abdel Maqsoud, who clarified that the quarrel ensued between the Egyptian national’s wife – A Moroccan lady, and a member of plane crew when the lady refused to remove her handbag or change her seat in the emergency row. However, Egyptian journalist and politician Youssef Abdelkader, who posed the video and contacted with the passenger, said that the security forces forced the family to leave the plane although the family changed their seats.

The Egyptian passenger and his family were on board of Romanian airline flight coming from Paris to Cairo and had a transit in Bucharest, said the ambassador. Due to the quarrel, the flight crew forced the passenger, his wife and son to get off the plane, cancelling their visas, the ambassador added, continuing that the passenger and his family took Turkish airlines from Bucharest to Sharm el Sheikh Airport, then to Cairo.

Egyptian and Moroccan authorities are following with the Romanian authorities the investigations that were launched into the incident, Said ambassador Abdel Maqsoud.

Good grief! I would have just tasered the lot of them, what is it with some people? they could start a riot over nothing and they get on about drunk holidaymakers causing trouble on aircraft. If I were the pilot I would have refused to fly the plane.

Why the woman and her husband were allowed to fly later that day, with Turkish Air I have no idea. She should have been locked up. I have no sympathy for her or him, it's normal practice on any airline to make sure that the emergency exit seats are occupied by people who are fit and keep their handbags in the over head lockers.

Completely agree Carrie, what amazed me was the mob mentality that quickly developed on board when the security were trying to do their job. It was made far worse by the couple yelling and screaming in the full knowledge that their actions were just making the situation worse, it was seconds away from a riot, imagine that happening in the air. Why do these people think that they have the right to do as they please and when challenged behave in the most ridiculous and childish maner in an attempt to get their own way and in typical fashion people who should have just stayed seated cannot resist involving themselves with loud shouting and threats, it seems to be a cultural thing.

Johnny foreigner always loves screaming and shouting even when there is nothing to scream and shout about.
As Horus recommended, tasering the lot especially British drunks.....

I could be wrong, but I can't think that the video shown relates to the incident described. Emergency exits aren't normally located by the back row. Or are they? Also, there are three seats in that ro, and all are occupied: man on aisle, woman in middle, child by the window.

I assume if they forced the man and woman off then the child was removed too, but that doesn't seem to have been mentioned (unles I overlooked it).

It certainly seemed a scary situation, whatever the rights and wrongs.
