A guy who missed his easyJet flight at Gatwick airport in London was able to actually slip by airlines workers and still get on that flight to Geneva, Switzerland. The only thing the 25-year-old man did was hide in the toilet.
It all kicked off when the guy loss track of time in the departure lounge and missed his flight. But instead of waiting for the next plane, he simply got pass crew, noticed there were no available seats and just hid in the toilet. Crew members were able to spot him moments before the plane took off and he was removed and then detained by police.
Passengers were forced to move onto another flight after the man was discovered by shocked crew members moments before take off.
A witness told local media: “Everyone was shocked, we just don’t understand how security can let this man through in the first place. The plane was completely checked, but some people were pretty scared and they simply refused to get back on board.”
An investigation has now been launched by easyJet into how the stowaway managed to get on board the flight.
As for easyJet, here’s what a spokeswoman had to say:
“easyJet can confirm that on November 12 a flight from London Gatwick to Geneva was met by the police due to a passenger who incorrectly boarded the aircraft. ‘The crew correctly identified the passenger should not be on board and immediately reported it to the police. We have taken this up with our ground staff and an investigation has been launched. ‘easyJet works closely with all of our airports to ensure the safety and security of all passengers and staff. The safety and well-being of our passengers and crew is always easyJet’s number one priority.”
But hey, hiding in a toilet on a plane is still a better experience than anything United Airlines has to offer.
