A middle-aged businesswoman was fined 200 yuan (US$25) and had her boarding pass cancelled after she made a scene and tried to attack security staff at China's Chongqing Airport late last week.

She was stopped at a boarding gate for trying to take a whole box of yogurt, containing 24 packs of the drink, onto the plane. This surpassed the authorities' limit by a considerable margin.

To the security staff's surprise, she opened some of the drinks and poured them onto the ground, threw herself into one security guard and clawed him with her sharp nails.

Do you have an idea why she did that?

I mean, is yogurt really something that important?

Quoting Carnoc (Thread starter):
This surpassed the authorities' limit by a considerable margin.

And is there a "limit" for taking yogurt on board in China?

Is this "limit" security related or does it have other reasons?

She must really love her yoghurt, that is one crazy lady!

Maybe it was laced with cocaine, thus making it addictive and causing her to act crazy when she was told she couldn't have it?

I flew from PEK to PVG in December of last year on CA. At the security inspection I was required to leave behind an unopened can of juice (purchased in China). Liquids seemed to be the most important threat to security at the time - many months before LHR's issue with liquids and gels.
My suspicion is that the yoghurt was considered just as dangerous as my juice and that's why it was forbidden.

Hi Leftshoe,

To the best of my knowledge, the 'limit' for China's domestic flights is that passengers should only bring liquids through the security screening points after being identified as non-dangerous (which means they must be opened for inspection, if the passenger insist not to open the package, then it has to be left at the security screening points), most security staff would ask people to drink it if it is a drink like water etc., or otherwise test the liquid by utilising other means (usually by smell etc.). And, this is for security purpose. This nationwide policy was introduced a few months after the plane crash (in Dalian, China) on 7th May 2002.

Regards.

Well, considering they make you throw away any liquids... I guess so. Well actually they don't require that, some idiot 3 years ago made me taste a can of Diet Coke and shouted something as I threw it to the nearest trash can after that. So the lady in the story could have opened them all and carried on I guess.

Today's age, 9-11, other crap. Yeah... whatever.

We had a military coup here two days ago, and the result was the bars were open longer the next day. Just relax. Big grin

Exactly - after some moron who possibly can't even read the boarding pass in the two seconds he looks at it, but stamps it anyway. Chinese airport departure procedure has to be the stupidest I have ever seen:

Customs clearance, pay tax, check-in, departure immigration, then this liquid sensitive screening with people who don't speak a word of English... In the process you collect about 32 stamps in the darned boarding pass.

God bless the European airports where you swipe your card in a machine, get a BP and 3 minutes later you sit in the lounge.
