Woman Goes Into Hysterics After Missing Flight

A woman who missed her flight at Hong Kong's international airport went into hysterics and has thus become a YouTube video star. The "woman going insane after missing her flight video" has over 1.35 million hits at the time of this writing.

The unidentified woman literally went nuts after missing the Cathay Pacific flight, which was bound for San Francisco. Cathay Pacific had already closed the plane’s doors and had offloaded the her baggage.

The video, at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbVw7entkxg shows her charging the gate and going into what amounts to a three-minute rant.

The woman sprawled across the Cathay Pacific counter, and later ended up on the ground, where a pair of men, including an elderly man who appeared to be traveling with her, tried to help her up. She resisted, shouting in Cantonese: "I want to go, I want to go."

A male Cathay Pacific staff member is heard saying on the video: "Don’t be so upset, don’t be so emotional."

Cathay Pacific said it put the woman and her two travel companions on a later flight, at no extra cost. They probably wanted her out of the airport as quickly as possible. The incident occurred earlier this month.

I'd expect to see the "woman going insane after missing her flight video" in this year YouTube Video Awards.

I commend the staff at Cathay Airlines for continuing to act professionally in the face of a lady losing it and being a drama queen.

Poor husband probably has to deal with that all the time.

There's an English translated version on youtube already that spells out what happened.

One of her companions should've knocked her the f*@# out
