Pilot returns plane to airport terminal over hard-headed caller MEDAN - A domestic flight yesterday was disrupted by a stupid incident. The plane eventually left one hour late because a passenger refused to turn off his mobile phone while in the plane. The plane only departed when the passenger was unloaded from the plane at Medan's Polonia airport.

Mandala Airlines flight RI89 departing from Medan to Jakarta left from the terminal building around four in the afternoon. One of the passengers which was traveling with his family disregarded the regulations by not turning off his cellphone while the plane was taxiing to the runway. The captain of the plane refused to accept this behavior and eventually stopped the plane on the tarmac. The passenger still refused.

Because the captain could not handle the passenger himself, he decided to roll back to the terminal building where airport security was able to pick up the reluctant passenger and his family. The plane was only able to leave from Medan with a delay of about one hour.

It's this kind of passengers that makes me puke, and there are many of them... in Indonesia as well.

What an incredibly lack of respect for other people! One hour delay may not seem much, but it can mean missing a connecting flight or long-distance train or bus, etc. - It should be (perhaps it is???) possible to place such a passenger on a "black" list, preventing him to buy any plane ticket. During a few days after the first discourtesy, up to several months for a second nuisance. Regards.-

That has been one of the subjects raised on the issue.
Some people call it rude behaviour if one raises his voice over the matter.
Because one is considered a quest in a country. So different points of view as usual.

I mentioned the same subject in the discussion in Dutch.
But some people feel that you cannot interfere or say anything because we are guests in this country. I disagree with that point of view exactly for the reasons you gave.

I don't think it really matters, the rudeness didn't start with the other passengers regardless of any nationality. If one wants to keep silent that's his or her choice.

And yes there are country's where such passengers are blacklisted after an incident like this. No discussion on nationality there either.

Reading the article again but now in English, the subject changed sex. In Dutch it was a hardheaded woman.
Anyway, the pilot handled the situation just right, regardless any other passenger being overexcited about the event. If anyone didn't like the handling of the situation file a complaint with Madala.
I still see no reason for any excitation, and yes, the country is full of very undereducated, but still hardheaded people. That is an unchangable fact, wether some may puke on it or not. It propably has to do with character, wouldn't it?

FredB; it was not.. that woman was my own experience in a reply to this news item in the Dutch topic. I was not on the Mandala plane as well, but on a Wings Air plane. The Dutch news item tells you it was a man that was unloaded from a Mandala plane.

You're absolutely right! I apologize. It is a bit confusing. Emoticon: Blush
