Beijing, Dec 17: A Chinese passenger on a domestic flight opened an emergency exit door to get a breath of fresh air when the plane prepared for takeoff in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

A social media post from a witness, Zuijia Nanpengyou, onboard Sunday read that the man opened the door on the Xiamen Airlines flight bound for Chengdu, Sichuan Province and had told a flight attendant that he wanted to open a window.


An attached photo showed the man, in his 50s, calmly seated next to the door in the emergency exit row.

The crew immediately closed the door and changed the man's seat, a report in the state-run Global Times said.

The flight took off as scheduled and the passenger deplaned at a layover in Changsha, Hunan Province without incident, it said.

In a similar case, a man was detained for 15 days after he opened an emergency exit door on a Sichuan Airlines flight on December 14, 2013. The flight had already landed in Beijing when the man opened the exit.
