Man Tries to Open Plane Door at 30,000 ft, thought it was Toilet

Air Disaster averted as One KLM passenger on a flight from Edinburgh Scotland to Amsterdam, attempted to open the Jet's exit door at 30,000 feet.

James Gray, told authorities he mistook the exit for the bathroom door....IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED if the crew didn't act fast, because according to Ask the Pilot, one cannot open a jet door in flight under normal operating conditions because of cabin pressure. 
He reportedly claims he merely touched the handle while temporarily confused but the crew dealt with the situation promptly, ordering him back to his seat and informing him he would be arrested upon landing.

He was arrested amd fined 600 Euros ($672), when the planed landed at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.

 “I tried to explain it was a simple mistake," the passenger told the Sunday Post. "It was a misunderstanding. The police came and arrested me. They weren’t too friendly.”

Gray spent the night in a  detention center and was released. Now banned from the airline for five years, he borrowed money to take a rival carrier back home to Scotland, the Sunday Post reported.
