Chinese lowfare carrier Spring Airlines has banned a group of passengers who sued the airline for compensation following an 8-hour delay in April. China doesn’t have regulations regarding passenger compensation for delays, so each airline is free to make up (or, in this case, not make up) its own rules.
A court awarded the passengers about $30 each for their troubles. Spring Airlines then said that the passengers “used forceful methods” (duh) to get the payments and, in turn, banned them from ever flying the airline again.
In case you were wondering the official reason for banning them, the airline said that the lawsuit represented “unruly behavior” on the part of the passengers.
Apparently they are not the only Chinese airline to have a passenger blacklist.
