The flight, CA1519 from Beijing en route to Shanghai, was supposed to take off at 9.30am but was held up for about 20 minutes as the couple continued to block the runway. They were eventually taken away by police.

The couple had allegedly missed the flight because they were not told about the boarding time.

However, the departure time and boarding time were both printed on the ticket and broadcast through the airport announcement service.

According to law, violators who block runway or disrupt flight departure can be detained for five to 10 days and fined 500 yuan (S$102).
