Lowcost USA airlines aren’t this bad…
Chinese Shandong is a low-cost airline. The flight landed safely at Zhengzhou from Guilin, but broke down before it could taxi to the passenger terminal. Airport staff were called out to help push, but they had to ask some of the 69 passengers on board to help because the plane would not budge.
It took the group nearly two hours to shove the plane half a mile to a side lane.
One of the airport workers said: ‘Thank God it was only a 20-ton medium-sized aeroplane. If it were a big plane, it would have knocked us out.’
