Rampant flight delays in China have created some irate costumers. So irate, in fact, that an airline has trained it’s workers in kung fu for self-defense purposes.
The inventor of Kung Fu probably never imagined the various ways it's used today.
Rampant flight delays in China have created some irate customers. So irate, in fact, that an airline has trained it’s workers in kung fu for self-defense purposes.
No doubt passengers trying to get out of airports in China are frustrated. It’s been estimated that less than half of the flights in the country leave on time. Some airports only have about a 20 percent success rate.
The rage situation has gotten out of hand, though. In numerous passenger uprisings airline staff have been assaulted. In one, bystanders applauded as a disgruntled ticket holder repeatedly struck a female attendant.
Not long ago Hong Kong Airlines took action and started training its new cabin crews in wing chun, to aid in their dealings with unruly customers.
A spokesperson for the airline also said that the fitness aspect of the training has proven helpful in physically assisting large, intoxicated fliers.
What do you think? Is Kung Fu an effective tool in managing unruly passengers?
