Many holiday season travelers will be familiar with the delays and frustrations of air travel.
But one passenger got so bored of waiting to get off a plane in Spain he took matters into his own hands—disembarking through the emergency exit and waiting on the wing.
His New Year’s Day Ryanair flight from London had reportedly been delayed for an hour, and passengers faced a further 30 minute delay on arrival at Malaga.
The passenger, reportedly a Polish man in his 50s, took his hand luggage with him and sat on the plane wing for some time before he was talked back inside by plane crew.
He was subsequently arrested by police for breaching airport security rules.
Fernando Del Valle Villalobos, who was on the flight, told the Mail Online: "This man decided he wasn't going to wait any longer.
"He activated the emergency door and left, saying 'I'm going via the wing.' It was surreal."
A spokesman for Ryanair said: "This airport security breach occurred after landing in Malaga airport on 1 January.
"Malaga airport police immediately arrested the passenger in question and since this was a breach of Spanish safety and security regulation, it is being dealt with by the Spanish authorities."
