Hey don't complain...

A cheap airline in China made the passengers  chip in and help. The plane apparently landed safely but quit before it could taxi to the gate. As reported, the staff, could not push the plane off the runway and asked the passengers to help.

Well I'm not sure what a cheap ticket in China costs (2 chickens?) but you get what you pay for people! Hell they probably went into the terminal and got on their water buffalo and drove home. jussssst kiddding... for all my China friends.

Anyway, I think pushing wouldn't really bother considering the plane a AT LEAST quit running while on the ground. It might be a bit tough to push when in the air.

Some of the original article is below...

A budget Chinese airline took flying pains to a new level Thursday after it made passengers get out and help push their broken plane to the gate, the Daily Mail reported.

The CRJ7 plane, with 69 passengers and seven crew members on board, had just flown from Guilin in the south of China, to Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province. The plane landed safely but then died before it could taxi to the arrivals terminal.

The staff could not push the airplane on its own, so the passengers were asked to pitch in. Even with the added muscle power, it took the group nearly two hours to get the plane off the runway.

“Thank God it was only a 20-ton medium-sized airplane,” one of the airport workers told the Daily Mail. “If it were a big plane, it would have knocked us out.”
