Pilot rants ‘I don’t need this’ in delay meltdown as passengers ask to get off

A pilot had a meltdown as he made an announcement on tannoy after passengers asked to "get off the plane" during a delay at Gatwick – and it was all caught on camera.

The WizzAir flight was scheduled to take off at London Gatwick Airport to Larnaca in Cyprus on Tuesday but it was reportedly left on the runway due to a delay.

Passenger Hannah Mace filmed the moment when the pilot was making an announcement on the tannoy.

She claimed the flight was delayed for seven hours and that all passengers were "stuck in the plane".

Her video, which has now viewed more than 1.5 million times, shows people standing up from their seats and chatting with people at the aisle.

She then said the pilot started "shouting" at them.

"Show of hands please, who wants to get off?" the pilot said. "We won't be going tonight if you get off.

"You know, I don't need this, the crew doesn't need this. We are doing what we can to get you out of here.

"It's out of my control. Completely out of my control.

"We're doing everything we can. If you want to get off, I'll let you get off, no problem."

Hannah is seen giggling while she whispers: "He told us off."

Viewers felt bad for the pilot and said he was only trying to do his job.

One commented: "He's got a point though, they can't do much it's all down to ground control.

"He's probably thinking he won't be getting home for tea tonight."

A second said it's not the pilot nor the crew's fault in such situation, adding: "There's only so much aggro you can take from entitled customers, they are humans too."

Others said they also had delays while flying out from the UK to other European countries.

Daily Star has contacted WizzAir for comment.
