During a flight, there is a possibility that various complications may arise that cause a delay in departure. However, it is not news that is always well received by passengers.
That was the case of a young man who, tired of waiting and the alleged poor willingness on the part of the airline to solve the problem, decided to open the emergency door and walk along the wing of the plane.

The event occurred last Thursday in Mexico City on a plane that was parked. The airport confirmed that the flight was destined for Guatemala and that, after the incident, the man returned to the cabin without causing any type of damage to the aircraft or attacking other people.

Due to his reaction, the authorities handed him over to the Mexican police and took him into custody. However, he gained the support of the rest of the people who were at the scene as they stated that they had waited for takeoff for almost four hours without being offered water or turning on the air conditioning.
After the tweet went viral, at least 77 of the passengers signed a letter to express that they did not agree with the version reported by airport spokespersons. “The emergency exit was opened out of desperation after leaving us locked up for almost four hours without ventilation and without water, what they intend to do is unfair,” wrote one of the travelers, who attached photos of the document.

In addition, the woman accused the Aeroméxico company of leaving “elderly ladies on the verge of fainting” and that one of its employees “made fun” of the situation.

In the comments of said statement, other passengers also expressed their opinion, claiming that the boy “was a hero” and that he “saved their lives.”
Later, port workers reported that the flight was supposed to take off at 8:45 a.m. on Thursday but that, due to a plane maintenance alert, the pilot had to return to the gate.
