Elderly woman delays flight by throwing coins into jet engine for good luck!

Explained by Will_Janitor...

You just can't make this stuff up! Ha! A flight in China was delayed for five hours after an elderly passenger threw coins into the aircraft’s engine for good luck. The 80-year-old passenger, surnamed Qiu, was boarding the China Southern Airlines flight from Shanghai to Guangzhou with her family when she stopped to make the ‘blessings’. Then she threw nine coins at the aircraft’s engine turbine. Concerned fellow passengers alerted airline staff.

I don't think I'd get on that plane after that. Suppose she really threw 10 coins. :)

true that one coin will probably not affect the flight that much but why leave it there? it would still cause damage.

I heard she had to pay an extra baggage surcharge for doing that.

How did she even get close enough to those engines in the first place, which must have been running since they were boarding?

does this elderly woman not realize that that could cause the plane to crash which would be the direct opposite of good luck?
