Antsy flier arrested at JFK after trying to yank open emergency exit door on plane

A stir-crazy Scottish passenger trapped on a JFK Airport tarmac for 2-1/2 hours tried to make a break for it by yanking open the emergency exit door, prosecutors said.

Robert McDonald, 60, of Glasgow, apparently had enough of the wait inside Delta's Flight 149 to Las Vegas on Sunday night when he went for the escape hatch, prosecutors said. He had just completed the transatlantic leg of his journey and had to change planes at JFK, prosecutors said.

The flight crew grabbed him before he could swing the door fully open and deploy the inflatable chute, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

McDonald's flight left the gate a little after 5p.m., but was stuck on the taxiway until 7:45 p.m. because of bad weather, prosecutors said.

He was arrested by Port Authority police officers and was expected to be arraigned at Queens Criminal Court last night on charges of reckless endangerment and criminal tampering. He faces up to a year behind bars if convicted.

He probably had such a great experience in DL's terminal he couldn't wait to get back inside...

Awesome!

That inspired mgmt. (borrowed from NWA) strikes again! It is so great to know the new NWA is leaving everyone happy with their travel experience!

-I can't wait for the next witty remark from the Gen. (especially considering the passenger's name.)

-Come on Gen, illuminate us as to your current level of retardation!!

It's funny..... You could start a thread about anything at all and crj turns it into his "I'm still mad at Delta for not hiring me" rant.

Give it a break....

Met one of the FA on that flight, and he said there was some cage-fighting went on to subdue that guy. Wonder what the write-up was gonna be if the chute deployed...

Nothing compared to the "gang rape" Andersen and Steenland are about to hand you.... Just get back to me when contract talks start up...

-Better get the good lube-you're gonna need it.

-Stick your head in the sand a while longer-it will help you try to ignore that uncomfortable feeling in your butt a little better.... You are not dealing with nice folks.

Wow. You're bitter. I mean, really bitter. I mean, seek medication bitter. Go kidney punch a dog or beat the hell out of a homeless guy or something. Yeah, it's a bad thing to do, but at least it would save the rest of us from having to endure your drivel.

My that made my morning. Thanks for the good laugh.

I really do not know what is up with this guy. DAL turned you down. Well it may be the best thing that happened to you. Just wait a few years and see how things turn out.

Well at least you admit it. What happened. Did they make you watch?:laugh: Lemme guess, the General was part of the group, and you hate to have to call him......Daddy?:laugh:
Hey moron, didn't the Delta pilot group sign a 4 year contract including 20% raises?

-Better get the good lube-you're gonna need it.
Why's that? The 20% raise over 4 years is more than you'll make in a lifetime saying "would you like fries with that?"

I think I would rather take my chances with the present management team than some washed out gang raped crj f/o!
