Chinese Official Flips Out After Missing His Flight At Kunming Airport [UPDATE]
We all know the stress of traveling, but how many of us, after missing a flight, would start banging on doors and kicking tables like this guy?
How many of us have the power to do so?
This man is a CPPCC committee member of Shizong county in Yunnan province, say netizens, identified as Yan Linkun. We’re told that airport security is currently investigating the matter.
How do we know no punishment will come to Yan?
Because the police say they’ll deal with this matter “in strict accordance with the law,” according to the Youku description.
UPDATE, 2/24, 10:13 am: Some more info: Shizong county investigators say Yan missed his flight on February 19 — a 11:05 am from Kunming to Guangzhou — because he was eating breakfast. While he was signing off for a new flight, he didn’t hear an announcement about his departure time, and ended up missing that one as well.
Shizong county has assigned a “specialist” to deal with the situation, and reportedly Yan will be disciplined.
Also, we’ve changed the headline from “Party official.” Apologies for any confusion caused.
UPDATE, 2/26, 2:06 pm: He’s been suspended from his company and might face criminal charges, even after making a public apology, in person, to an airport official.
