…Is there any possibility that this f*ckw*t could be prosecuted for potentially endangering other passenger’s lives by the time taken to collect his bag and then blocking an emergency exit whilst lugging it through with himself?…

Fully agree. The cabin crew are between a rock and a hard place when evacuating. Spend vital seconds remonstrating/arguing with luggage carrying passengers thus holding up the evacuation or just get people off regardless.

It is not just the selfishness of slowing down the process but the fair chance duty free bottles will get broken at the foot of the slide making it dangerous for the shoeless.

Prosecutions should occur whether there are injuries or not.
CC should be able to state that passengers taking luggage will be prosecuted.

On a side note – it is these highly professional experienced Cabin Crew that Walsh and Co are gunning at – shame on Walsh/Williams.
