Which rules are applied If a passenger wants to get off from LHO (live human organ) carrying aircraft, during taxi?

Is the passenger get off from aircraft? Or Is priority given to LHO?

Is there an international written rule stating which of the priorities? (ICAO ANNEX, EASA EU OPS, IATA DGR, etc.) Thank you in advance.

    Er, no. You certainly won’t get to leave the aircraft once it has left the gate “because you forgot your keys”.

  • This should be asked in the travel site of Stack Exchange. Also, the structure of the question needs to be improved. Remove the hypothetical elements. Ask it more like, "What laws/regulations exist pertaining to passengers alighting from the aircraft once the gate has been departed?"

    I'm guessing the OP is asking where are the rules covering passengers' rights during taxy. I'm also guessing they are in Annex 2 of the Chicago convention somewhere, but life's too short... Jan 5 '19 at 18:02

Once the doors are closed, the flight is completely under the control and discretion of the Captain.

If she decides not to go back to the gate, the plane does not go back to the gate, no matter what some uppity passenger claims their "rights" are.

    -1 for the tone. As I understand it, certain religions have prohibitions on being around deceased bodies and organs, i.e. Kohen in Judaism. It is not merely an issue of being "uppity".
