At first it sounds like a typical case of bad behavior aboard airplanes.

The Mexico City International Airport acknowledged in a statement Friday that a man had opened an emergency exit and walked out on a wing of a plane that was parked and waiting for takeoff Thursday.

The airport said the man had been turned over to police.

But dozens of fellow passengers signed a written copy of a statement saying the airline made them wait for four hours without ventilation or water while the flight was delayed. According to photos of the statement posted online, fellow passengers said he acted “to protect everyone, with the support of everyone.”

    I think this framing is extremely disingenuous in the title. It’s the same kind of bullshit that resulted in the misframing of the McDonald’s hot coffee suit.

      I think the second sentence makes it not. If the guy didn’t have a really good reason for doing so, the other people on the plane wouldn’t have supported his actions. It’s clickbaity. But the title to me makes it sound like the guy might be a hero.

      An excellent documentary by the same name, Hot Coffee, is out there and well worth the watch.
