Passenger Tries To Open Plane Door After Missing Flight

Filed Under: Other Airlines, Videos

Some pretty crazy footage has emerged of a lady who was scheduled to fly AirAsia from Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta last week. After missing her flight she apparently brought it upon herself to try and open the jet bridge door and try to board the plane.

Here’s the video:

According to the Daily Mail, here’s what was being said during the video:

The first video shows two security officers try and pull the woman away from the door, as she shouts, ‘why are you going for me, tell me, why.’

‘It’s my flight, you have no right, okay,’ she continues.

The passenger is then filmed aiming a kick at one of the officers, before she says that they ‘have to open’ the door for her.

The second video then shows how it took four men and one woman to drag the irate passenger away from the plane entrance, and out of the restricted area.

The security door is then closed, but the woman is still furious that she was denied boarding the plane.

‘Why are you going for me, why, why,’ she rages.

‘I have a ticket.’

One of the female security officers responds: ‘Yes you have a ticket, but you are scheduled to be at the gate.’

‘It is supposed to wait for me,’ adds the passenger.

Goodness gracious. I do have to wonder, at what point did she realize that there was a possibility they wouldn’t let her onto the plane? Once the four cops were called? Once they were physically dragging her away from the plane? Or…?

Then again, I guess she has nothing on the guy who had an even more epic gate meltdown at Kunming Changshui International Airport in China:

Makes some of the stuff we see happen at US airports look downright mild by comparison!

  1. Air Asia’s slogan is: “Now everyone can fly!” Yes, but really, should these people fly?

  2. I thought the gate agent would close the gate door first and then the plane door to prevent instances like this one.

  3. It’s never happened to me (touch wood) but I imagine one of lifes first world stresses is missing a plane. Though, I would like to think I would retain some self control and dignity of it did happen. That said, I do enjoy watching a good old fashioned bitchfit of people missing their planes on Youtube…

  4. Look u think it’s a sad blot on today’s society
    In or around 1994-95 there mass movements on mental health issues and patients rights
    The same folks whom let mental health care slide want more money spent on the issues that we are now paying for now with scenes like these
    At the end of the day, if these folks are off their meds .. The rest of society pays as we can’t ” instuitionalise ” or they self-medicate as we used to
    Sorry, but this is not normal rational behavior in public and we (the general traveling paying public) should not have to put up with it … sorry to all the bleeding heart Liberals out there but enuff is enuff !!

  5. Oh god Nev. It is NOT that freaking deep. Some people are just a-holes. No mental health to it. She’s a Chinese national and her behavior is sadly par for the course for many mainland Chinese travelers. It’s an entire culture of “Do You Know Who I Am” passengers who are new to travel and have a different set of cultural norms in their home country because of their financial and social stature. The notorious behavior of China’s travelers has gotten so bad, their government has actually threatened to fine and blacklist those who continue to shame China with their poor manners, uncouth behavior and wild antics. Throwing hot water on flight attendants, fist-fights over crying children (everyone remembers that hilarious screenshot of that woman going airborne in the plane), or allowing a toddler to poop in the aisle mid-flight (there are many more where that came from). I, personally, have had run-ins with Chinese tourists pushing, shoving, spitting, touching priceless art and centuries-old furniture in a museum/castle after repeatedly asked not to, cutting in line, yelling at service people, etc. It’s a cultural issue because mainland Chinese who are new to traveling behave a certain way in their home country and it’s rightfully perceived as rude, combative and entitled in other places. They’ve started traveling more than Americans, so the “ugly, uncouth American” image has been overtaken by the rude mainland Chinese.

  6. Apparently @Reine is from Hong Kong. No one else would spend their time writing such an extended reply filled with pride and ignorance to attack “Mainland China”. And SCMP :p

    Word of advice: making people look bad doesn’t make you look good, especially you all looks alike.

  7. “Word of advice: making people look bad doesn’t make you look good, especially you all looks alike.”

    ….wait…what? I can’t quite understand the advice because it literally makes no sense…”especially you all looks alike”…wtf does that mean?

  8. @Reine
    Dead on. The Ugly American used to be the worst, at least out traveling the world in major numbers. Recently, the worst tourist trophy has gone to the Russians. Now the mainland Chinese are in the forefront. When you provide means to travel for a group with no travel experience, there’s going to be problems.

  9. The police reactions are pretty mild. In the US these people would have been tased/shot and then kicked repeatedly in the head once the person was on the ground.

  10. @Pat Disick, i’ll help you out.

    well last year while in Taipei, i saw a mainland chinese tourist peeing into a public trash receptacle. btw i am a native chinese so now i am a racist? If you dont know what Taiwan and mainland China mean please read some history, and I don’t mean watching History Channel.

  11. I have personally seen three instances of hardcore airport meltdowns. All three were in China.

  12. @him “The next Barcelona flight won’t even leave until after Michelle should have arrived. It’s not one of her better mornings.” LOVE IT!!

    Reminds me of my days on board there 😉

  13. I would not object to airport police having tasers. Both those people needed to have some sense shocked into them.

  14. What a bunch of pu55ies those ‘security’ folk are. If that was in the States she would have been (quite rightly) tased at the minimum – drama over.

  15. Just scrolled up and read the comments. Nice to see I’m not the only one who thought of that.

  16. @Reine-

    You see, however “civilized” you proclaim yourself to be, you still can’t refrain from using the f word in public.

    Anyway, nice talking to you. :p
