NEWS Disgruntled Cathay Pacific passenger rips roof of new A350 looking for space


A Cathay Pacific plane bound for Bangkok, Thailand, was delayed from taking off from Hong Kong’s international airport after drama ensued during boarding.

An unidentified passenger from Hong Kong who was trying to find space to stow his luggage was displeased that configuration of the new A350 aircraft meant there weren’t any lockers above his seat.

Despite flight attendants telling him that they’d find storage space for him elsewhere, the passenger refused to believe them.

He then tries to open a panel but then rips the roof panel open with his bare hands, determined to find the space for his luggage. All he was met with was a gaping hole and shock from his fellow passengers.
