Man sparks outrage after filming himself sprinting to front of plane as soon as it landed
| Last updated
A man has incurred the wrath of the internet by showing how he doesn’t hang about once his plane arrives at the destination, springing up to make sure that he’s amongst the first to get off. Here's the video in question:
It is a bizarre quirk, isn’t it?
As soon as the plane is taxiing to the stand, people are up out of their seats and queuing to get off the thing.
It’s not even arrived yet, really.
Still, whilst many prefer to just wait it out and get off in an orderly and leisurely fashion, not everyone can do that.
If we were giving them the benefit of the doubt, maybe they’re in a rush for a connecting flight or something, but more likely they’re just impatient.
The video is titled: “POV: you have 0 patience when getting off planes.”
It shows the seatbelt sign going off on a flight, which prompts the passenger to grab his s*** and start running past a load of people to get to the front of the plane.
It’s almost impressive, given that he’s near the back of the aircraft, and he eventually ends up only behind a small few people at the very front.
Well done – you’ll be first in the security queue.
In the caption for his followers, the sharer of the original video wrote: “I’m literally top 5 plane unboarder.”
What an accolade.
His video has been viewed more than 10 million times, and received thousands of comments.
One simply read: “You’re the problem.”
That comment has 223,000 likes.
Another said: “Unless you're about to miss your connecting flight this is uncalled for.”
“Get back to your seat,” said a third.
Others threatened more affirmative action against such passengers, with one stating: “If I'm in the aisle seat, I will get up just to block you and tell you to wait your turn.”
However, there were some who defended the video, with one positive comment reading: “Why is everyone so mad he can get off a plane. I didn't see anyone have an issue in the video.”
Another wrote: “The same people that take 78 business days to get their stuff and get off and on the plane are the ones complaining about this guy.”
A third person posted a more detailed and itemised response: “1. He is at the back of the plane.
“2. He had his things already ready and got up as soon as they landed.
“3. Everyone on the plane has two options get their s*** faster and be more organised or let those who are ready and have minimal luggage off.”
So, is it bad etiquette, or simply taking advantage of the dawdling of others?
Whatever it is, it seems to have really got under some people’s skin.
