Woman causes flight de­lay in­sist­ing on prompt di­vorce from hus­band

Daily Trust - - STRANGE STORIES -

Dis­grun­tled plane pas­sen­gers had a fel­low trav­eller to blame for a seven hour de­lay - af­ter she de­cided she didn’t want to fly and de­manded an im­me­di­ate di­vorce ..

Re­ports sug­gest the un­named woman in her 40s boarded the air­craft with sev­eral hundred pas­sen­gers fly­ing from Moscow to Vladi­vos­tok, Rus­sia.

Shortly af­ter, she ap­par­ently told cabin crew that she needed to get off the plane to change her re­la­tion­ship sta­tus.

The Ros­siya Air­line flight was al­most ready for take off when the in­ci­dent took place on Mon­day.

Ac­cord­ing to wit­nesses, the woman was heard say­ing: “I am not in the mood to fly now.”

She then went on to de­mand that flight at­ten­dants let her off the plane.

In ac­cor­dance with safety reg­u­la­tions, more than 500 other pas­sen­gers were also forced to dis­em­bark the air­craft.

It is not clear whether the woman’s hus­band was also on the plane at the time she made her de­ci­sion.

A video, up­loaded to In­sta­gram by Elena Ashtein, showed dis­grun­tled pas­sen­gers walk­ing down the steps of the plane and back to­wards the air­port.

A cap­tion along­side the clip read: “One girl de­cided not to fly to the coastal town. More­over, she changed her mind at the time of take­off. [For] more than an hour [they] tried to per­suade her to stay.” Culled from mir­ror. co.uk

Pas­sen­gers were un­happy with the woman af­ter she de­manded cabin crew let her leave the air­craft
