Passengers Refuse to Leave Canceled Flight in Beijing

52 passengers refused to get off an 8pm flight from Beijing to Yentai after it was canceled, preferring to sleep on the plane (none of the stories I’ve read say which airline it was…)  About 150 passengers left the aircraft after a 3-hour delay on the tarmac, but the 52 others refused, saying they wouldn’t accept the cancellation (that is a bold move).  Unlike other such incidents, crew continued to provide food and drink until about 3am, when officials said the passengers could take a 730am flight to their destination (yes, I know, this whole story has a bunch of holes in it, but I liked that the people wouldn’t get off the plane and that the flight attendants still served dinner.)
