THIS is the moment a WizzAir pilot rants "I don't need this!" over a plane tanoy as he loses his cool during a "seven-hour delay."

Exhausted passengers were left in disbelief after the pilot spoke from the cockpit on a delayed flight to Cyprus at Gatwick Airport.


The passengers – who were set on flying to Larnaca – were allegedly left on the runway for "seven hours" in the delay.

But alongside the complaining holidaymakers, the pilot also seemed to get agitated and snapped over the tanoy.

He warned the passengers that if they got off the aircraft, the flight wouldn't be taking off that night – and that he was doing everything he could to resolve the situation.

The WizzAir pilot was heard saying: "Show of hands please, who wants to get off?

"If you want to get off, I'll let you off, no problem."

Recording the moment in disbelief, Hannah Mace and her pals erupted in laughter and disbelief as the pilot continued the rant.

She then posted the clip to TikTok – where viewers sympathised with the pilot as he lost his cool.

One person wrote: "Oh bless him though. You can hear the pain in his voice.

"He wanted to get going as much as everyone else, must be hard to have everyone moaning at you."

Another added: "To be fair, I'm on his side. He's probably extremely stressed and the crew are exhausted."

WizzAir have been contacted for comment.

IN A TIZZ

Brits have been plagued with airport chaos in recent months as the industry has struggled to get back on its feet following the pandemic.

Holidaymakers have faced long delays, airport madness and queues at terminals across the country amid the issues.

Earlier this week, fuming Brits were forced to sleep on airport floors and wait in huge queues at airports across the UK as travel disruptions continue across the country.

Passengers at both Heathrow and Gatwick complained that they had to wait hours to get through the airport in the early hours of the morning.

One woman said: "Never seen such a long queue for security at @Gatwick_Airport. Good job I've still got a few years on my passport or it would expire before I get through."

Another man wrote: "@Gatwick_Airport hey, I'm going to miss my flight I was two and a half hours early for, because you've got over a thousand people queuing for security and no staff. Any advice?"

Another traveller shared a picture of huge queues at 3:30am just for people looking to drop their bags off which snaked around the terminal.

Passenger Vicky Murphy wrote: "Absolute disgrace this morning at North terminal baggage drop. Not one member of staff directing a queue of people and now the queue for security is this….. It’s a joke!"
