Two airline pilots in Southeast Asia abandoned airship after hearing they had potential coronavirus-infected passengers aboard — and their escape is bonkers.
The video, shot Friday, shows the AirAsia pilots — moments after they landed in New Dehli, India — popping out of the cockpit window and getting down to the tarmac that way … rather than go through the cabin with the rest of the crew and passengers. The reason for their hasty, and awkward, retreat — there was a rumor they had a couple sneezy travelers.
Check it out … one pilot opens up a hatch and slithers through, safely making his way onto the airstairs before helping his buddy out. They were acting pretty caj about it, but c’mon … this ain’t normal.
Apparently, word started circulating mid-flight about suspected cases of COVID-19 in the first row — so it looks like the pilots didn’t wanna chance being anywhere near those seats. As it turns out, nobody was actually infected — AirAsia says the passengers were screened and tested negative. The plane was fumigated and cleansed too.
Still though … better safe than sorry.
