The plane has to return to the gate and the baggage has to be located and offloaded. An aircraft cannot deplane a passenger and leave the baggage on board. I had that happen once out of Dublin, just before I closed the door, a passenger decided she was not going anywhere and demanded to get off....we tried to convince her to stay ( knowing it would cause a delay offloading the bags), but she was adamant she wanted off ( we were glad as she appeared somewhat emotional and began acting unstable ). So, off she got, and we had to delay to find the bags in the hold.

After all those engine failures BA has encountered, I don't blame her at all. Actually, I myself have demanded to get off of planes in the past and so I did. Sometimes you just get this anxiety feeling and you just want off. Usually it happens when I get on a plane that looks like it has been around for awhile (interior and exterior) and bad weather, I start getting very very anxious. Maybe she has anxiety attacks like me. Or perhaps she had just seen Final Destination...

Quoting Biggles (Reply 14): Jen and her aides got off the plane ....
She needs aides ?? LOL These Hollywood celebs are such a joke..
Sure do, its a well documented illness, as soon as an individual earns over $1m they suddenly develop a condition known as "Stuck up lazy arse syndrome". Symptoms include memory loss resulting in the individual being unable to perform even the simplest of tasks.
A few well documented cases have involved individuals suddenly forgetting how to order food, make a phone call, open a car door and in some cases even the ability to wipe their own arse.
There is no known cure for Stuck up lazy arse syndrome. In order to survive and live a semi normal life, sufferers are often assigned special nurses which help them during their daily lives. These highly trained nurses are often reffered to as "Aides", "Secreteries", "personal Assistants", 2Minders" and in some countries, "Butlers".

Quoting Kieron747 (Reply 15): I think what's more disturbing is why Birdwatching is reading 'www.femalefirst.co.uk' !!!!
Hahaha, that's embarassing...
Actually, the reason is because I read it on a german site (www.spiegel.de) and in order to post an english-language link, I googled the words "aniston british" in news.google.com and this was the first result.
Whatever, you're not gonna believe this story anyway...
It is true though!
All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home
