A mother of two has been reportedly blacklisted from flying with the Ukraine International Airlines after she took a walk on the aeroplane’s wing. In a video, which has now gone viral, the emergency exit can be seen open and the woman can be seen walking on the wing. Bizarre, right? The woman reportedly complained that she decided to take a walk because she was feeling “too hot” inside the aircraft and she climbed onto the wing to “get some air”, news website The Sun reported first.

According to the report, this happened at a Boeing 737-86N aircraft deboarding at the Ukrainian capital Kyiv. Officials said that the anonymous lady was vacationing in Turkey with her kids. This was her return flight. As per reports when the flight landed at Kyiv, she reportedly complained about the heat and then opened the emergency exit to go out on the wings to get some fresh air. She also calmed herself down by sitting on the wing until officials had to urge her to go back inside the aircraft.

  • Ukraine International Airlines said the woman “opened the emergency exit and went on to its wing” after landing in the Ukrainian city of Kyiv. 

Passenger blacklisted

Her fellow passengers were as much shocked as the aircraft staff. Her own children, who were sitting with her in the aeroplane, caught by surprise too as per reports.

“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, ‘that’s our mum!’” a passenger told, the Indian Express reported. After this incident was reported, Ukrainian Airlines confirmed in a statement that the passenger “illegally” opened the emergency exit of the plane so she was “blacklisted for gross violation of aviation safety rules and behaviour onboard.”
