On Saturday, at 3:50pm, an Air Macau flight bound for Macau was at the runway in Chengdu, preparing to take off, when an angry female passenger created a ruckus on board, forcing the plane off the runway and back to its gate.
It turns out that the woman was furious because flight attendants would not let her pay some extra money to upgrade to first-class. It’s not known why the cabin crew refused the woman’s request; however the pilot decided to go on the intercom and made an announcement in support of the flight attendants decision, NetEase reports.
Of course, this only pissed the woman off more and the pilot was then forced to call police, who escorted the woman off the flight.
So it wasn’t until two hours later, at 5:50pm, that the plane finally lifted off, headed for Macau.
While certainly annoying for other passengers, this incident doesn’t quite compare to a similar one from December 2015, when a male passenger threw an epic tantrum on board a plane at the Shanghai airport bound for New York after being denied a seat upgrade despite repeated attempts.
It was later revealed that the man was an assistant professor at Penn State. No info yet about what job in the academic world this lady holds.
