Yet another passenger tries to be a nuisance on a flight. First, there was a violent ang moh on a Singapore Airlines flight.
Now we have another one on a Scoot flight.
The pilot delayed landing due to safety
The pilot makes an announcement on the plane stating that they are legally required to ensure that everyone is supposed to put on their seat belt during landing for safety reasons.
In the video, the pilot warns that they will make another approach to land the plane. If the passenger still refuses to comply the authorities will be involved.
Here was how scoot responded to media enquires:
Due to unruly behaviour by a group of passengers, including the refusal to fasten seatbelts during descent, our Captain discontinued the approach into Singapore in the interest of flight safety.
The flight landed safely on the second approach at Changi Airport without further incident, and the involved passengers were escorted off the aircraft by airport authorities for further investigation.
For the safety of passengers during flight, all passengers are required to be seated and to have their seatbelts securely fastened for take-off and landing, or until the seatbelt sign has been turned off.
The well-being of our customers and staff is our priority, and we do not condone behaviour that compromises flight safety. Scoot will take appropriate actions against any passenger who may risk the safety of our customers and staff.
Scoot sincerely apologises for the disruptions and inconveniences to our customers. As investigations are still ongoing, we encourage members of the public to refrain from undue speculations.
Here are what netizens think:
- “FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS OR IM TURNING THIS PLANE AROUND-“
- Why is it so difficult to fasten your seat belts?
- Passengers who don’t secure their seat belts will have to stand outside!
- Omg when you have that type of Captain, you truly feel supported as a crew. Hats off commander
- I thought he was gonna say they will run out of fuel and crash land if they continue with third approach…
