A Greek man said on Sunday he would have been the 150th traveler on the Nairobi-bound Ethiopian Airlines Boeing plane that slammed killing all ready, with the exception of he arrived two minutes late for the flight. 

"I was distraught in light of the fact that no one helped me to achieve the entryway on time," Antonis Mavropoulos said in a Facebook post entitled "My day of reckoning" in which he incorporates a photograph of his ticket. 

Mavropoulos, leader of the International Solid Waste Association, a non-benefit association, was venturing out to Nairobi to go to the yearly gathering of the UN Environment Program, as per Athens News Agency. 


He should load onto the plane yet he achieved the takeoff door only two minutes after it was shut. 

He booked a later flight yet was then kept from loading up via air terminal staff. 

"They drove me to the police headquarters of the air terminal. The officer let me know not to dissent but rather to go to God since I was the main traveler that didn't load up the ET 302 flight that was lost," Mavropoulos said in his post in which he concedes being in stun. 

The air terminal experts disclosed that they needed to address him since he was the main traveler booked onto the bound flight who wasn't ready. 

"They said they couldn't release me before cross-checking my character, the reason I hadn't loaded onto the plane and so on." 

The Nairobi-bound Boeing 737 slammed only minutes after an early-morning departure Sunday from Addis Ababa. 

Individuals holding visas from in excess of 30 nations were ready including various UN laborers. 

State-possessed Ethiopian Airline had taken conveyance of the Boeing 737-800 MAX plane on November 15. It was of indistinguishable kind from a plane that slammed in October after departure from Jakarta, murdering every one of the 189 individuals ready.
