    Chinese guy caught throwing "lucky" coins in an airplane engine

    A Chinese man who was boarding a plane for his very first flight thought it would be a good luck to throw some of his lucky coins in the plane's engine. Authorities didn't think it was such a lucky idea because they had to ground the flight an do additional safety checks. The man was eventually fined $17,200. The best part of this story is the name of the airline: Lucky Air.

    A Chinese man who was flying for the first time has been fined for throwing "good luck" coins into a plane's engine.

    The 28-year-old was ordered to pay $17,200 (13,100) in compensation to the budget airline - called Lucky Air.

    The plane was grounded after the coins were found near one of its engines.

    Lu Chao admitted throwing the coins as he boarded an internal flight at Anqing Tianzhushan Airport in eastern China in February 2019.

    He appeared in court in July but the ruling was only recently made public.

    The flight was cancelled after staff spotted two 1 yuan coins on the ground near one of the plane's jet engines.

    Safety checks were carried out, leaving passengers stranded while replacement flights were arranged.

    Mr Lu was also detained by police for 10 days, charged with disturbing public order, but was made to pay compensation via a civil case.

    In court, Lucky Air said the incident had cost it more than $17,600.

    Mr Lu argued in court that the airline should have warned passengers not to throw coins at planes.

    It's not the first time superstitious passengers have been caught throwing coins at plane engines.

    There have been a number of such cases in recent years, including an elderly passenger who delayed a flight in 2017.

    ^Yep, an ongoing Chinese tradition.

    Well I may have you know Aunty Dill that I am extremely cashed up this month because Australian SUPA hit a fookin home run. All that Is due to The Donalds financial planning of course and Seppo stocks twisting off on a massive run which makes us Bogans very happy indeed. Flows onto us dunnit.

    On ya Donald you fukin little beauty.

    So me being a very generous kunta I tipped my noodle soup lady 7 baht and she took the next day off work to celebrate being in the money.

    Vaguely related to this post (ie - things that some people do 'cos they've always done it etc). When my grandmother visited the UK (she lived in Egypt) in the 1970's, she handed a 5 pound note to the customs guy at Heathrow Airport to avoid the delay of him searching her luggage. Suffice to say, she ended up with a major delay as her luggage was pulled apart and her internals were minutely searched by a lady with large hands...

    And I agree with you 100 % mate.

    The wankin felchin soft cock Politicians have fuked the place. The place is so Politically correct it's brain dead and the rules we run under are stifling.

    There are a few exceptions though, if you are Black, an unmarried mother with ten kids, unemployed or full of Cancer it's fookin Brilliant.

    The poor old working pleb is up against it though, bound to struggle along raising his family through his working life and then hopefully have a few buks left over to buy a cup of warm milk before he dies.

    Usually don't work out that way though, bitch usually ends up fuking the lawn mower man and the poor coonta tops himself.

    If she don't do that then the sad fuck gets to live with her till he dies and that is a slow living death in it's self.

    Yes,

    I do know i disturb a few punters with my musing but there are a heap of people in this world who dare not confront the facts of life.

    I care not about this lot, soft cocks, vegans, and faggots hiding under their mummies skirt.

    Car salesman and lawyers are coonts as well.
