A British woman who tried to open the door of a plane mid-flight was sentenced to two years in jail on Wednesday. Chloe Haines, 26, was on a flight from London Stansted Airport to Dalaman in Turkey in June 2019 when crew members and fellow passengers had to stop her from opening the door.



"Ms. Haines' behaviour was one of the most serious cases of disruptive passenger behavior that we have experienced, and we have banned her from flying with us for life," said Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays in a statement.

Two Royal Air Force fighter jets were scrambled to escort the jet back to Stansted Airport following the incident.

Jet2 billed Haines, from High Wycombe, west of London, more than £85,000 ($110,000) after her "extremely disruptive behavior" caused the flight to be diverted.

Chelmsford Crown Court heard how Haines had mixed alcohol and medication before the incident, which she didn't really remember.

Prosecutor Michael Crimp told the court how Haines "lunged" to open the door of the plane, which was carrying 206 passengers.

Haines said "I want to die" and "I'm going to kill you all" as others struggled to restrain her.

How is this even a thing? My fucking washing machine cost around $2,000 and has a lock that makes it impossible for you to open the door while it's operating and we can't figure it the fuck out on an aircraft that cost hundreds of millions of dollars? With much higher stakes?

If I open the door to the washer some water gets on the floor. If I do it on a plane I kill a few hundred people. WTF is this dumb shit?

Lol true, even on trains in the UK, the doors are inoperable when the train is moving but planes haven't figured this out yet. Who needs a bomb on a plane a jihadi could just buy a ticket then open the door an kill everyone, how is this a thing?

I think you will find there is an interlock on the exits and unless the pilot releases the interlock you could pull all day on the exit handle and the door would not open.

Correct, you can't open the doors or other emergency exits in flight. The pilot has to disengage the door locks and you can hear them tell the cabin crew that they've done so with the "Doors to manual" announcement after you land.

Also the pressurised cabin means even if the door was unlocked nobody could open it because the unequal forces keep the exit doors wedged solidly in place.

That aside, I've no problem with people causing ructions on aircraft getting tossed in jail. TBH, if some cunt started honking about their or their kids peanut allergy I'd have them taken off and jailed for being so cuntish. :lol:

27????
27!!!!???????????

Jesus wept if that passed for 27 she's done some HARD partying I tell you. That's gotta be a few grams of coke a week and some heavy ass binge drinking......

P.S. she deserves a worse sentence. You cannot be that crazy when drunk to threaten to down a plane!

(Although once I was so drunk I tried to fight a group of Koreans (pussies shit themselves apparently) and my GF stopped me).

I don't remember. I was utterly smashed. But yeah that sounds like something I'd do :rofl

But even when I black out I would never do something as retarded as this whore.
