Triggering an evacuation slide


If an airline passenger triggers the emergency slide during the ground time (without prompting the flight personnel), you speak loudly AG Rüsselsheim (ruling of 11.07.2011 -.. 3 C 497 / 12-36) and AG Hamburg (ruling of 18.09.2013-.. 22a C 214/12) from an "exceptional circumstance" (aA AG Rüsselsheim, ruling of 20.07.2010 -.. 3 C 1316 / 09-32, RRa 2010, 290). However, the air carrier must prove that it has implemented all possible measures to ensure it does not happen.
However, if a crew member during the opening of the aircraft door trigger the emergency slide, the case is no longer considered "exceptional circumstance".
