Published on Dec 6, 2015

Man decided to “upgrade” himself from economy to first class. He got caught multiple times and refused to identify himself to the crew, at one point even walking down the aisles drinking champagne that he stole from first class. The crew asks him to leave the plane and he refuses. Finally, the Chinese authorities arrive to drag him off the plane. However, they claim they are not allowed to handcuff someone that is mentally unstable (???). Finally, with the help of some passengers and plastic zip-tie cuffs provided by the crew, the man is carried off the plane kicking and screaming the entire way.

He was dragged off the plane kicking and screaming after getting drunk and attempting to force his way into the first-class cabin.

For his embarrassing antics, the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu, Sichuan province, has terminated its relationship with Mr Lu Yong.

In a statement posted on its official Weibo account on Tuesday (Dec 8), the university confirmed that Mr Lu had been teaching there as a guest professor since August. He was also the director of its Internet Finance Research Centre.

The university said that it “values the virtues and ethical conduct” of its teachers and does not tolerate unlawful behaviour.

“It is our belief that professors should be morally respectable so as to teach their students,” it added.

Mr Lu is also said to be an associate professor of information sciences and technology at the Pennsylvania State University, according to his online resume. He graduated from Southwest in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree in economics.

A video of police officers struggling to handle a passenger throwing a tantrum on a plane has surface online, reported the Shanghaiist.

The footage was uploaded on to YouTube by user Yale Zhao on Sunday (Dec 6) and has almost 20,000 views.

The scene, which lasted more than three minutes, caused United Airlines flight UA087 from Shanghai to New York to be delayed for about two hours.

In the video, the passenger can be heard screaming “I want to get up” and “I want to wear my clothes” in a mainland accent as officers struggle to pick him up from the aisle as he refused to budge and kicked the officers at his feet.

According to the description of the video:

“Man decided to “upgrade” himself from economy to first class. He got caught multiple times and refused to identify himself to the crew, at one point even walking down the aisles drinking champagne that he stole from first class. The crew asks him to leave the plane and he refuses. Finally, the Chinese authorities arrive to drag him off the plane. However, they claim they are not allowed to handcuff someone that is mentally unstable (???). Finally, with the help of some passengers and plastic zip-tie cuffs provided by the crew, the man is carried off the plane kicking and screaming the entire way.”

According to Straits Times, the Chinese media have reportedly identified the man, with the surname Lu, as a university professor from Chengdu’s South-west University of Finance and Economics.

He had also been drinking before boarding the plane
