In the latest instance of a news trend that started out  ludicrously exciting and now leaves us with emergency exit ennui, yet another Chinese flier has landed in the slammer for opening the emergency exit on his flight for apparently no reason whatsoever.

LET'S RECAP: Man opens airplane emergency exit 'to get a breath of fresh air'Passengers on board delayed flight open emergency exits and escape down to taxiway; Drunk passenger attempts to open emergency exit during Changsha-Hohhot flight 

China Southern Airlines flight CZ3264 from Nanjing to Nanning via Nanchang, scheduled to depart at 12:235pm Monday afternoon, was delayed for over an hour after a middle-aged man on board opened the aircraft's left overwing door. 

An air stewardess on the flight said she was helping a passenger in row 39 with their luggage when the man, seated in 40A made for the exit almost immediately after boarding. She says that when she confronted him the man said "it's irrelevant whether or not the door is closed."

As he soon discovered when he was dragged off the plane by airport security, however, it's actually kind of a big deal
