A Chinese low-priced airline traveller has found himself in trouble after opening a plane's door and deploying its emergency slide because he found the cabin "too stuffy and too hot".

A Chinese man was detained and fined $11,000 after he opened the emergency exit door of a plane as he felt "stuffy" while waiting to get off the flight.

Unfortunately for him, the handle he pulled was attached to the emergency exit and not only did the hatch come free from the plane, but it also activated the escape slide, the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported quoting a Thepaper.Cn report yetaerday.

The 25-year-old man, who was identified only as Chen, was on a Lucky Air flight from Sanya city, Hainan to Mianyang, Sichuan.

"Because it was so stuffy, so hot on the plane, I just pushed down on the window handle beside me". The airline that owns the plane, reacted with disbelief to the young man's confession, because the emergency exit of all passengers are instructed before each departure.

The man has now been fined 70,000 yuan (11,000 U.S. dollars) as punishment.

Suu Kyi's office also said in a statement that cooperation was needed from Bangladesh on the repatriation of refugees. Many in Myanmar regard Rohingya as illegal immigrants from mostly Muslim Bangladesh.

A man who allegedly opened the emergency exit door of a plane on the tarmac of a local airport in China was detained for 15 days, local media reported. "When the door fell out, I panicked".

Chen said he was detained by police for 15 days following the incident "for the unauthorized removal of aviation facilities".

The airline claimed it would co-operate with the authorities for further investigation procedures. The airline said, "Flight attendants inform travelers about safety precautions before taking off".

He claimed that he accidentally opened the emergency door as he was getting airsick and wanted some fresh air.

However, this is not the first time a passenger has opened an aircraft's emergency door.
