Lecturer sleeping on plane wakes up in airport hangar - 90 minutes after other passengers had got off






Kris Lines was left slumbering on the Air Canada plane - and was only woken a full hour-and-a-half later after all the other passengers had got off - by an aircraft mechanic

When Kris Lines settled into his airline seat after almost 24 hours travelling on the road and in the skies, he was more than a little tired.

It was hardly surprising then, that the university lecturer nodded off within minutes of the plane departing.

But the 31-year-old was given a shock when he was finally awoken - by an aircraft mechanic, a full 90 minutes after all the other passengers had disembarked.
By this point the plane had been moved to a darkened airport service hanger and Mr Lines was still strapped in his seat following the 80-minute flight.

Mr Lines told today how he was left slumbering on the empty Air Canada jet after staff busy helping disabled passengers leave the aircraft failed to spot he was still on board.

I have done similar on the bus, falling asleep & waking up at the end of the line miles away from where I wanted to go...
