Passengers Open Emergency Exits on China Eastern at Chengdu

提交时间:
 
Upset by a delayed flight, at least two Chinese passengers opened emergency exit doors in protest as the plane was taxiing, forcing it to abort takeoff, police said Sunday. Angry passengers complained about the delay and a lack of ventilation, and a man surnamed Zhou opened three emergency exits to prevent the plane from taking off, forcing it to return to the gate, according to state broadcaster China Central Television. A total of 25 passengers—all part of a single tour group—were held for… (www.wsj.com) 更多...

A long term in jail would give them time to think about others. Can't open the jail doors in protest.

As they had been delayed and no vent for deicing, and were taxiing for takeoff, it kinda makes me SMH, wondering what were they thinking, knowing or maybe not thinking about causing another delay.

Hey, linx318...you can tie up passengers and fix a hole in the fuselage! Great tape!

You're confusing duct tape with speed tape, at $300 a 2" X 36yard roll it's a bit expensive for passengers. $700 for the 4" wide.

Linx- sent you a message but didn't hit the replay. Sorry. Go Hawks!!!

China Eastern is so outrageously incompetent, and the routine payments received for delay cant make up for the troubles. Last months, with all pax aboard (2hr delay) the left engine was leaking JetFuel onto the tarmac, and that led to another 3 hrs delay for locating another A/C. Fools abound.

Doesn't matter what the country or political situation, there will always be y-gen idiots who can't see past themselves for the bigger picture. They were taxiing, why after delays would you stop it now?

Very good point. I think you're right about the protester's mind set. Thank goodness they didn't wait until it was airborne.

I'll assume you mean for the passenger, not hold the doors shut¡¡¡

It has become obvious that passengers, (customers), are no longer willing to accept being treated poorly by airlines staff. They seem to feel they have powers to order, demand and overwhelm passenger concerns at will. There is no "customer service" on flights in the US. It is crowd control at its most ridiculous.

If you read the caption under the image carefully you'll discover that the image is not of the aircraft the incident took place on. Pay attention to locations, days, dates etc.

News outlets frequently use file photos. It doesn't change what happened.

I did not see what aircraft it was but shouldn't the slides inflate when the door is opened? Perhaps the pilot started to taxi without arming?

Who are these passengers that think the airline and crew control the weather? Shure managers make bad decisions during delays, like holding passengers onboard when there is a multi-hour delay. They use weak excuses like no gate space, or busses, or ground staff to corral the geese.

Opening a door exposes all passengers and crew to danger. The perps should be charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm with multiple victims. 25 to life at hard labor is a lenient sentence.

B737 I believe. Think I saw that anyhow.

Another article states that the incident happened on a 737-800, and it was the overwing doors. The Daily Mail article on this has interior/exterior pics.

Not a &37. The engines on a 737 are flat on the bottom. This may be a 767 since the engine nacelles are round on the bottom.

The engine looks like the PW series on both the 757 and 767. The fuselage is a bit thin for a 767, so I think its a 757, however, I looked at their fleet summary and they currently have neither in service. I suspect it was an old "file photo" when that type was in the fleet. It is not an A320 which their fleet summary shows for the registration number painted on the jet in the photo.

If you are referring to the airplane in the picture at the top of the WSJ article, it is indeed an A320 with the CFM engines.

Might I ask what you mean by FLAT ON BOTTOM. I'm stone cold sober and they all look round to me.

The 737s engines have to have a flat spot on the bottom of their nacelles or the engines would be scraping the ground. The wings are to low for the engines to be totally round so the bottom part is flattened so that they will fit. Else the plane would be sitting on the engines, not enough clearance. Look at photos of 737 engines and you can see that they are not round on the bottom.

Well, you have to be looking for it to know it's there. I never did notice it before. I had heard they were going to have to do something like that on the MAXX but didn't know they already were.

Boeing has been using engines with oval nacelles for over 20 years. Large engines won't fit unless they have sufficient clearance from the concrete. I am glad that I could educate you, preacher. Keep the faith!

Honestly, my time was on a 707 and then to a 757 so it wasn't a factor. You never get too old to learn, Ev.

Most of my time was on a C-135, the military version of the 707. Then on to corporate flying the small crates. I don't get too old to learn either. Only 77 this year.

From the all-knowing Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_737_Classic#Development_and_design

"The new series featured CFM56 turbofan engines, yielding significant gains in fuel economy and a reduction in noise, but also posing an engineering challenge given the low ground clearance of the 737. Boeing and engine supplier CFMI solved the problem by placing the engine ahead of (rather than below) the wing, and by moving engine accessories to the sides (rather than the bottom) of the engine pod, giving the 737 a distinctive non-circular air intake."

The article referred to "three emergency exit doors", I suspect the author meant the three of the four overwing emergency exits.

He could do that fairly quickly before another passenger intervened. I believe the Asian cultures are less likely to stop someone compared to western cultures where someone would intervene very quickly.

How do you abort a takeoff whilst taxiing??? Was this on the Tarmac? Good thing the Copilot was able to...
