Woman Walks Out On Aeroplane Wing After Complaining She Was 'Too Hot'

Woman Walks Out On Aeroplane Wing After Complaining She Was 'Too Hot'

Everyone gets a bit flustered when they're getting ready to get off a plane, but few have gone to the same lengths as this passenger. Watch below as she walks onto the wing of the aircraft after arriving back from her holiday in Turkey, complaining she was too warm:

The mother-of-two was said to be 'too hot' after landing in Kyiv, Ukraine, on a flight from Antalya.

She opened an emergency exit on the Boeing 737-86N and climbed onto the wing 'to get some air'... as we all do.

She has now been banned from flying with Ukraine International Airlines.

Another returning holidaymaker said: "The aircraft landed and almost all the passengers got off. She walked almost all the way from the tail to the emergency exit row, opened the door and went out.

"By that time her two children were outside the plane and standing right next to me. They were surprised, saying: 'This is our mum'."

The pilot called for an ambulance, police and border guards.

The woman - who went safely back into the aircraft - was unable to explain to police the reason for her behaviour other than saying she was too hot. Tests showed she was not drunk or on drugs.

She was travelling with her husband and two children for a family holiday before the start of the new term.

Boryspil International Airport in Kyiv confirmed the incident.

Climbing onto the wing of a stationary plane is clearly considered very serious wherever you are - and so is the bizarre ritual of throwing a coin into the engine of a plane before it takes off, almost as if you're chucking it in the Trevi Fountain.

But this is what some passengers have been known to do, with Lucky Air (a low cost airline based in China) actually suing a passenger for lobbing two coins into the not-so-lucky plane.

According to the MailOnline, flight 8L9960 which was travelling from Anqing, Anhui province to Kunming, Yunnan, was grounded for security reasons and eventually cancelled, affecting 162 passengers and costing the airline nearly 140,000 yuan (£15,300 / $20,500).

The 28-year-old man, identified by his surname Lu, admitted to chucking the coins while boarding on the tarmac as he was hoping for a safe journey...
