Reply To: Police detain rowdy China Eastern pax for opening plane exit doors

Back to Forum


Rowdy behaviour by passengers on a delayed China Eastern domestic flight has led to 25 of them being detained by police.

The incident happened last Friday when the flight suffered a delay of several hours on the ground owing to bad weather. A number of pasengers opened the aircraft’s emergency exit doors.

Thankfully this sort of thing never happened a week ago when several Etihad planes suffered major delays on the ground. Passengers were obliged to remain on board some flights for as long as 12 hours.
