Airplane Stampede

So here’s a tip for travellers new to air travel in China: if there’s no room in the overhead locker above your seat, don’t EVER put your bags in any of the lockers further back in the plane. When the plane lands (or usually before) people will start getting out of their seats and moving towards the exit. It is literally a stampede and you’ll need to walk against the flow of the human tsunami to get your bags, or wait till the plane is empty!  Polite and uninitiated Englishmen will grow old waiting for someone to let them out into the aisle while the more seasoned ones (James) will body check the oncoming passenger and force his way through, which is the expected method and nobody will complain of rudeness.

    Hey buddy!

    Great bloggin!

    Keep it up yo!


  2. don’t you think it’s a little unfair given that James is English and therefore much larger than the average Chinese for him to body check someone? i mean, i’ve heard of british hegemony, but this is just ridiculous . . .

    Bruv all these years plane hopping in China and you only just figure this out?

    Angie, obesity is a global problem – we have fat Chinese people now too that make James look malnourished.

    Bro, I figured it out long ago, just decided to share it with uninitiated readers for their benefit.

  5. Swiss James says:

    I am not fat, I am just nearing the top of a weight cycle right now, which will shortly see me whittling down to a slip of a man.

  6. Woaizhongguo says:

    James, nobody’s calling you fat. Bald(ing) perhaps, but then we all are (albeit at different stages).

  7. shaving doesn’t count as baldling . . .
