An impatient flight attendant from United Airlines has been relieved from her flying duties after she pulled the emergency exit and disembarked from the parked aircraft after landing.

In her haste to deplane, the unnamed United Airlines flight attendant opened the aircraft's emergency exit when the Boeing 737 from Sacramento, California landed at the airport in Houston, Texas.

The incident occurred on Monday morning when the flight landed at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston at 11:26 AM. The flight with 159 passengers and six crew members on board taxied for nearly five minutes before halting at the gate.

The passengers were asked to stay put in their seats because of a medical emergency on board - a man at the rear of the aircraft was having breathing trouble. However, the unidentified flight attendant bailed out and bizarrely enough opened the front door to slide down the escape chute. She then walked away from the airplane as captured by the video below.

Reportedly, the attendant did not have any hurrying need or emergency she needed to cater to which would require her to leave the United Airlines flight in such haste. The powers-to-be at United Airlines are not aware as to why the crew member opened the emergency exit and inflated the chute at all.

The attendant's motive remains unclear at this juncture but United has noted that it believes that the crew member's action was intentional. It called the behavior deplorable and revealed that it would be relieving the flight attendant in question from her flying duties.

"We hold all of our employees to the highest standard. The unsafe behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the more than 20,000 flight attendants who ensure the safety of our customers. United is reviewing the matter and they have removed the employee from her flying duties," said the airline.

The aircraft was taken out from inspection services shortly and later journeyed to Fort Lauderdale, albeit after a 40-minute delay.
