Passenger Opens Aircraft Door on St. Louis-Bound Frontier Flight
A passenger was detained after opening a door on a Frontier aircraft taxiing to the runway at Cancun International Airport, Mexico on Tuesday, October 23.
These videos were captured by passenger Kathleen Ingham on the St. Louis-bound flight. They show Frontier airlines cabin crew trying to restrain the man, who complained of feeling ill, and insisted he wanted to get off the plane, Fox News reported.
The man struggled with flight attendants before opening the aircraft door, automatically deploying an emergency slide, the report said. He was reportedly taken to hospital for treatment, while the flight was subsequently cancelled and passengers rebooked on other flights.
