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

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.

@Carla Hey....never know what that delay avoided:) Ha!

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

There's no telling these days. Ha!

She should only have said a player for the prane and let it go at that.

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

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