A flight was postponed yesterday after a woman tried to stop the plane from leaving the airport. But the reason she wants the plane today is certainly new. The passenger allegedly wanted Spring Airlines' flight to be waiting because her escort traveler – presumably her daughter – was still shopping at the airport. The flight with the Chinese low-cost airline from Bangkok, Thailand to Shanghai, China was delayed by half an hour.
The woman is said to have become "emotional" and tried to prevent the cabin crew from closing the door.
A viral video of the incident is spreading on the Internet after gaining a foothold in China.
Video footage, which was probably taken by another traveler during the flight, has captured the unrest on board.
It shows disgruntled passengers arguing with the flight attendants, while the woman responsible for the Brouhaha sits on the ground in front of the plane.
Clips of the episode were announced yesterday on the Chinese short video platform Douyin.
A spokesman told MailOnline that the woman was "emotional" when she tried to prevent the cabin manager from closing the aircraft door.
She claimed that her daughter called the airport police to claim the waiting time for the flight because she had two pieces of luggage on board.
The flight from Spring Airlines started without both passengers and landed at 9.14am at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, more than an hour behind schedule.
Spring Airlines condemned the "uncivilized" behavior of passengers, MailOnline reported, while Chinese netizens encouraged the tourism authority to blacklist them.
Express.co.uk has asked the Chinese airline for further comments.
Tourists classified as "uncivilized" by the Chinese Tourist Board may be considered "bad behavior" for up to ten years.
This will likely limit any future travel and could result in a tough credit rating.
Last month, a passenger appeared on a flight from Spirit Airlines from Orlando to Newark, USA, which showed a bizarre appearance with a bad mouth before the plane took off.
The person who wore her hair in a ponytail and a denim jacket was a passenger on a low cost Spirit Airlines flight from Orlando to Newark.
She was filmed swinging her cell phone as she walked down the aircraft aisle, and seemed to get angrier as she was asked to turn it off.
After a nasty breakout with other travelers, she flashed her butt in an unsightly twerk.
The woman was soon taken off the plane by the cabin crew, which caused a wave of applause.
Earlier this year, a male passenger was caught in front of the camera as he ranted about drunk and described the cabin crew as "pedophiles" in shocking scenes.
Footage filmed by another passenger shows flight attendants trying to restrain the passenger as he calls on the aircraft.
