Did they tell them to get their carry-on baggage? If not I would have said... "Not allowed on the slide."

They usually say leave everything and just get off the f*cking plane that's on f*cking fire.
But you know what people are like, they aren't leaving their sh*t on the plane.
If people have to die, oh well.

A friend had a similar problem, and had wonderful way of handling it one time in Canada of all places. Bint didn't want to leave her rollerbag on the plane. She went down the slide without it, and it was the LAST bag delivered hours after everyone else's bag. You see it was lost for about 12 hours because it was put aside in a security section due to her trying to get it off the plane. So the bag had to undergo extra security screening, after it was found.

Could be selfish stupidity, could be partially a language barrier.

CSB:
I was on a ValuJet flight (so 20+ years ago) that, on approach and landing at ATL from DCA had a lavatory smoke detector go off. Pilot told us the FA checked and no obvious fire, so he was taking us to the terminal where the FD would meet the plane. He told everyone to leave their luggage and get off once the jet bridge was up and the door opened.

There was an older couple who had checked in at the DCA gate in front of me that had Polish passports. They obviously didn't speak much English and they grabbed their stuff out of the overhead and went on their merry way.

After a few minutes in the gate area, they called all clear and let us get back on to get our stuff. That was the worst part - they should have done that by rows, just like boarding.

If someone is doing this in-between you and the nearest exit, they are trying to kill you. React accordingly. I suggest throwing them into the seats as the fastest way to clear the aisle for yourself and the people behind you trying to escape, but whatever you decide, do it quickly. Every second you are on a burning plane is that much more chance you die there, and the person more concerned with their farking luggage or their farking cellphone IS TRYING TO KILL YOU.

Do this to me and if you're lucky you'll be able to get back out of the seat.

Oh, if you're a small kid, I'd just pick you up and throw you on the slide and deal with the parents later, but you have to make that decision on what to do about the small child who is unintentionally trying to kill you.
 
2022-06-22 10:53:36 AM  
Throwing your cell phone video on and recording in an emergency can be useful.

The suitcase, I would argue not so much, but on video review it appears everyone was taking their luggage and leaving the baby on the plane.

It would be very foolish for a flight attendant to hold up a passenger at that narrow exit and obstruct the entire evacuation.

I was just discussing this with my wife last night.   We were sitting at the piano singing Stan Rogers songs.   I pointed out that he was the reason I know how to get to the exits and open them from the moment I get aboard a plane.

If people are waiting in a queue to get off the plane "you don't have time to pick up objects lying at your feet, run for your life!" doesn't apply.

A life pro tip I received from an involuntarily displaced person is to bring luggage anyway even if you're told not to. The worst case is you have to leave it behind further on. The best case is you have toiletries and clean clothing and other belongings while others have only the warm feeling of having followed rules that turned out to be unnecessary.
 
2022-06-22 11:08:19 AM  
That's why I only carry-on a backpack that I keep under the seat. It has survival stuff, like empty water bottles (it'll help the bag float) a small medkit, and several pairs of underwear.

You never know when you'll (or what will make you) shiat your pants. I've had to evacuate and when I told the crew what's in the bag, the flight crews love the idea and usually say stick around.

It's probably a good thing I don't fly when I travel.  I like to wear my 19th Century clothes when doing so.  Less clothes overall to pack, because I can wear the same coat and vest and trousers every day, and just change out my shirt and full length drawers.  But the shoes have enough metal nails and heel plates to tear up those emergency chutes.

Worst case is your luggage rips the slide, you break your leg, the luggage bounces off your head and gives you a concussion, and you're prosecuted for killing dozens of people behind you on the plane.

Flying out of Florida on Delta. Plane dies on Tarmac. Pilot, uuuhh the plane stopped I'm going to try and get it started and if this works we won't have to get towed back to the terminal. Plane started. Pilot, Alright looks like we're a go for takeoff hopefully this doesn't happen midair. Fortunately they had cocktails.

A few years ago a plane caught fire upon landing at an airport in Russia. Some passengers were grabbing their carry-ons and they believe it held up those behind them from evacuating in time. 41 people died.

What actually kills people during fire evacuations (aside from locked exits) is people fighting with each other trying to get past instead of evacuating in an orderly fashion. Even if you're very angry about someone not following the rules the behavior you're describing is a much greater threat to your life and the lives of those around you than anything in the video.

The plane was on farking fire.

If the plane exploded and there will still people trying to get off than grabbing that bag probably killed somebody. Leave the farking bag. If you have a moment to turn on your phone, fine, but don't do anything that might slow the evacuation.

Reminds me of boarding a flight this past weekend.  An older woman (50s/60s) boarded before I did and was seated toward the front of the plane (Airbus).  I get on and she's fussing with stuff in the overhead bin.  I figure she's finalizing packing, so I wait.  Next thing I know, she digs in her bag and is now playing Suzy Homemaker by arranging everything "just so".  The queue is growing (we all were agitated as it was), and I held my tongue.  She finishes and starts patting her hair and clothes in that old lady fashion now that the job is done. She's about ready to do who knows what when she happens to look to her right and sees me, along with a lot of irritated people wanting to get to their seats.  "Oh!  I'm sorry." And it takes her several clueless seconds to figure out how to sit in her seat so she's out of the way.

Yeah, someone like that is going to be a major impediment in an emergency situation.

In fairness, that's pretty much the disembarkation I'd anticipate for my flight segment if I'd booked on a 2-year-old Dominican-Venezuelan budget airline. At my destination, alive, with my bag, and an extra $50 in my wallet? Success.

This might be a stretch, but why not look to federal "Interference with Flight Crew" civil charges, 14 C.F.R. § § 91.11, 121.580, 135.120.

Prohibition on interference with crewmembers.
No person may assault, threaten, intimidate, or interfere with a crewmember in the performance of the crewmember's duties aboard an aircraft being operated under this part.

Fine his ass $25,000 for putting the other passengers lives at risk and ignoring the safety briefing.

Or, you could read the actual article and find out it is a low cost airline based out of the Dominican Republic focusing on tourist flights.  With no relation to any of the information you provided prior to the link.

I remember that case, and the one in Dubai where the same thing happened and a flight attendant was killed. I remember wondering how many people just grab the bag from under the seat in front of them out of nothing but pure instinct and don't even think about it.
