PIA passenger wants to go to the bathroom but inadvertently deploys emergency slide


On 7 June, Pakistan International Airlines’ evening flight PK 702 from Manchester, U.K. to Islamabad, Pakistan departed more than six hours late after an inadvertent emergency slide deployment.

Just before departure, a passenger wanted to go to the bathroom but mistakenly took the aircraft’s door for a toilet door. She opened the armed door at the rear left of the Boeing 777-340 (AP-BHW) and deployed the emergency slide.

As a result of the inoperative door, 21 passengers had to be accommodated on other seats and 37 passengers couldn’t continue their travel to Islamabad and where offloaded.

* in this case, the airline was still allowed to operate the flight but had to reduce and reseat the passengers as the door wasn’t available anymore in case of a possible emergency evacuation.
