An unidentified male passenger of the Cathay Pacific jet caused a major delay of three hours as he ripped off a part of the plane with his bare hands. It was found that the man was struggling to put his luggage inside the overhead locker.
The flight was scheduled to travel from Hong Kong and it was heading towards Bangkok airport.
The jet was a newly designed Airbus A350, which did not provide any overhead locker for the passengers.
Because of the new design of the aircraft, the passenger could not find any locker. Instead, he ripped off a part of the roof panel above his seat with his own hands before the flight could take off.
The flight crew had to evacuate all 300 passengers in order to repair the damage.
The crew members of the flight are supposed to help the passengers to store their luggage after they board the aircraft.
The Cathay Pacific authorities did not decided to take any legal action against the passenger.
