    One Xiamen Airlines passenger recently delayed her flight’s departure by one hour when she opened the emergency exit door of the aircraft because she reportedly felt the cabin was “too stuffy” and wanted a “a breath of fresh air.”

    Why do these things happen in China though? First tossing coins into the engines now opening the Emergency Exit. Well at least the cabin crew knows she's qualified to sit there. I do remember an older woman on a TWA flight, the days when the middle seat wasn't used it the plane was less than 80% full ask me if the window shade thingy was to open the window. I just said noooooo and explained about cabin pressure etc, etc. That was not an exit row on that 727 and I'm glad there was a seat between me and her in addition to about 40 years of age. Now I'm approaching that age. Maybe a visit to China and flying a Chinese airline should be on my bucket list. If I opened an emergency exit they probably would lock me up.

    Like any low budget airline, they probably took out all the Buddas and nothing to rub for luck??

    'Social credit ranking', I meant. The only thing the Chinese govt can't tell what citizens are doing is farting. Google invented this system for them and the whistle blowers from Google are saying that they are working with the radical left to instill the system in the US after Google (if it isn't broken up) will try to rig the 2020 elections too.
