A couple was removed from an Air New Zealand flight after they refused to listen to the safety briefing on Tuesday.
NZ424 from Wellington to Auckland was forced to turn back to the gate to offload the passengers, who were seated in an exit row. The plane was met at the gate by airport police who removed the passengers. One passenger was issued an infringement notice for use of a cell phone.
A passenger contacted Newshub and said, “I have to say that if watching the safety video is so crucial and you can be escorted off the plane, maybe Air New Zealand should stop making ‘Rachel Hunter ice cream ad’ safety videos. Just make a short video that is compulsory to watch and let people know if they don’t watch the video, the police will come and take them away.”
