Written by on March 11, 2024

A China Southern Airlines flight from Sanya to Beijing turned into a frustrating wait for passengers on March 6th. The flight, originally scheduled for a 10 am departure, was delayed by over four hours due to a rather unusual incident: a passenger throwing coins into the aeroplane engine, according toΒ CNN.

According to Chinese state media, the cause of the delay came to light after a lengthy wait. Footage shared by media outlets showed a flight attendant questioning a passenger suspected of throwing the coins. The passenger, whose identity remains undisclosed, admitted to throwing “three to five” coins into the engine, likely for good luck.
