Photo - VIDEO: Passengers Protest Inside Arik Aircraft Due To Inhuman Conditions

The passengers including Nigerian popular singer Banky W on a New York bound Arik Air trip were subjected to untold hardship occasioned by delays in checking in and excruciating heat after boarding the aircraft.

The passengers of flight ‘Lagos – New York’ were provided with water, but still there were lack of air conditioning in the aircraft cabin.

The passengers were pushed on the edge of their patience. Adults and children are seen fanning themselves with newspapers and eventually taking of their shirts. Without air-conditioning or proper ventilation, passengers would have used up the oxygen on board, recycled it as CO2 and began inhaling the dangerous air.

“Let me out, I can’t take it anymore!” a woman screams. “This wickedness, why are they acting like this,” an elderly man asks.

Some of the passengers including popular singer Banky W are seen trying to get the attention of the pilot in the cockpit. Gentleman Banky W tries to calm one of the passengers on board and ironically loses his own cool in doing so.

“Why are you shouting at me? You want to start fighting here? Will you calm down here,” Banky W shouts back at the man who also replies him, “Sharrap, I’m flying 10 hours, I’m a married man.”

Passengers become very anxious and are screaming to get down, the cabin crew look just as confused.

The video does not show whether air conditioning was restored or the flight eventually took off. The fellow recording the video, one Olubkola Ore-Ofe says the air conditioning was restored. There has been no official statement from Arik Air.

After enduring the airline’s shenanigan for a while they took to protesting on board.
