Woman's Airport Meltdown Becomes YouTube Hit

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This Video of a hysterical passenger screaming at airline staff and writhing on the floor after missing a flight at Hong Kong airport has become a YouTube hit.

The three-minute clip of the furious woman has racked up close to 500,000 hits in just four days on the video-sharing site.

The video starts with the screaming woman running towards the departure gate and bouncing off a female security guard, after she learned that her flight has been closed.

She then starts banging a desk before collapsing to the floor and rolling around, while maintaining a high-pitched wail.

A man unsuccessfully tries to comfort her and get her off the floor, but the shrill screaming continues.

The footage, entitled "A woman missed her flight at the boarding gate HKIA" appears to have been shot with a mobile phone from behind the staff desk.

The woman was travelling on a Cathay Pacific flight to San Francisco on February 4, a Cathay spokeswoman said.

"All passenger doors had already been closed and the crew was preparing the flight for departure," she said.

"As the passengers had failed to show up on time, we had already offloaded their checked baggage to comply with the security requirements."

The spokeswoman said the woman had been able to take a flight a few hours later, adding passengers are always advised to arrive at the gate no later than 20 minutes before the scheduled departure time.

"We do not know who shot the video or who posted it on the web," she said.

I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

Hi folks, - uncovered your current webpage unintentionally when searching round the internet this afternoon, and pleased that I did! I do like the page structure and colours, but I should say that I’m having trouble when it loads. I’m making use of OmniWeb 5 web browser for mac, and the menu doesn’t line up as it should be. i’m confident I have made use of the same design on a client’s web site, but the menu seems O.k on mine. I have an idea the problem is at my end and maybe it is time to switch!
