Are air passengers sick of how they’re being treated? Heck, yeah. But in China, they actually stage protests, of a sort.
Ok, it wasn’t exactly Tienanmen Square, but on a flight out of Beijing, fifty-two passengers (out of about 200) refused to leave the plane when the flight was canceled due to weather. They slept on the plane for over twelve hours, then finally walked off when the flight crew announced they could take another flight.
The biggest irony, and something I can’t see happening on America’s cash-strapped airlines? The flight attendants kept serving food and drinks to the “protesters.”
