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. 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.
“[For] more than an hour [they] tried to persuade her to stay.
“But she said that she decided to get a divorce, and she had to get out,” cursing a seven-hour flight delay.
