Pilot has incredible response to 'entitled' woman who ran to front of plane to be first off after landing

Pilot has incredible response to 'entitled' woman who ran to front of plane to be first off after landing

The passenger wanted to be the first off the plane

Being 'entitled' enough to push through the queues at airport check-in is one thing, but to literally run to the front the plane to get off first is something else.

That's why this pilot was praised for his heroic response to a woman who wanted to be the first off the plane.

Look, as soon as you land at your destination, no one - I mean no one - wants to be on the plane longer than they need to.

The temptation to pull off your seatbelt, grab your bags, and leg it off the aircraft is there for most of us.

But most of us will have enough awareness to acknowledge that the other passengers on board are thinking the same thing.

Ultimately, all you can do is wait your turn.

This comes after one woman got heads turning for all the wrong reasons when she decided she had to be first off a busy plane - much to the amusement of the pilot, who called her out in the most brilliant way.

The plane had just landed when the woman shot to the front.

Explaining what happened in a Reddit post from 2022, someone else who had been on board at the time said they’d all been on an eight-hour flight when the woman at the back ‘unbuckled and darted to the front of the plane to get off first’ just after they landed.

“She did not make any eye contact and felt that she was special,” the Reddit user said.

“I’m talking about going from the very last seat on the plane, down the whole row and past first class. Basically standing at the little kitchen thing in the front.

“All this time the seat belt sign was still on and we were still rolling down the runway. The flight crew had asked her to return to her seat until we reached the gate but she was not even responding.”

The Reddit user said everyone was ‘exhausted’ after the eight-hour flight and that ‘nobody said a word’.

They continued: “Suddenly the captain announced we had a special guest on board and he will be coming out to greet after we were settled at the gate.

“The Karen stood there awkwardly until we did the whole, rolling into the gate and whatever planes do when they land for about 15-20 mins.”

Everyone was just sat in their seats wondering what the captain was talking about.

“Eventually the captain came out and asked the lady to please move back a little to get to his special guest, then a little more,” the Redditor added.

“Then a little more. He was looking from row to row trying to find a specific person. Everyone is watching and looking around to see who it could be.”

The captain kept going, asking the woman to step back a few more steps each time.

As they approached the rear of the plane, he asked her to sit for a second while he grabbed the intercom.

He then said: “Ladies and gentlemen I’d like to announce our special guest sitting in seat 42C. Let’s give her a round of applause."

The Reddit user said the whole plane went ‘wild with laughter and applause’, adding: “I loved every moment of that.”

Some users defended the woman, with one saying 'some people just aren't good with flights', adding: "I had to do a brief 35 minute connecting flight last weekend and it was a smooth trip, no turbulence, etc., but I still ended up incredibly nauseous (to the point of sweating), because I get such bad motion sickness. It’s great that it’s 'literally nothing' to you, but not everyone has the same easygoing attitude as you when it comes to flying - and that’s ok."

But others sided with the Reddit user, with someone else commenting: "I f**king hate these people."

Another said: "I have a T-shirt that says, 'STOP STANDING UP WHEN THE PLANE LANDS.' People either love it or don't get it."
