Missed flight woman goes absolutely mental

Mother of all tantrums proves YouTube hit

Build a business case: developing custom apps

An anonymous woman who on 4 February demonstrated at Hong Kong airport exactly how not to deal with missing your flight has become a huge YouTube celeb after the mother of all tantrums was caught on camera:

The drama queen in question was apparently en route, or not in this case, to San Francisco on Cathay Pacific. A spokeswoman for the airline explained: "All passenger doors had already been closed and the crew was preparing the flight for departure.

Mercifully, the spokeswoman added that the woman was able to get a later flight, presumably after a solid tasering and forced ingestion of valium. ®
