A Chinese airline passenger was beaten after being filmed demandingly an airport employee kneels on the ground.

& # 39; You must kneel to apologize, & # 39; the passenger can be heard saying in the 24-second clip what is trending on social media.
The stubborn man was criticized by web users after he accused the airport worker of being viral. The incident took place on Saturday at Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport

He repeatedly urged the worker to kneel down while pointing angrily at him with his finger.
The worker tried to defend himself. He said: & # 39; I am a member of the staff. I perform my responsibilities. But you don't have to humiliate me. & # 39;
But the furious passenger claimed that kneeling is not & # 39; humiliation & # 39; used to be.
He demanded: & # 39; You must represent your company and apologize. & # 39;

The incident took place at Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport on Saturday, airport staff confirmed to MailOnline.
The passengers were waiting for their flight from Zhengzhou to Shenzhen with West Air.
The incident occurred on a flight from Zhengzhou to Shenzhen with budget airline West Air
The budge airline is a subsidiary of Hainan Airlines Group, the largest private airline in China. It manages more than 70 domestic and international routes.
A customer service representative from the Chongqing based courier told MailOnline that the courier on that day operated two flights from Zhengzhou to Shenzhen and both were delayed due to adverse weather conditions.
The first flight, PN6311, was delayed for nearly an hour and departed at 8.02 pm. The second flight, PN6322, was delayed for almost four and a half hours and departed the next day at 2.30 a.m.
The duration of the flight is two hours.
The airline is investigating the issue and cannot confirm which flight caused the altercation.

The behavior of the passenger has caused a wave of criticism from internet users who have urged the Chinese authorities to punish him.
On China's Twitter-like Weibo, a user wrote: "Forbid him to take airplanes for the rest of his life, and then let him kneel if he wants the ban lifted."
Another commentator wrote: & # 39; (The delay) was caused by the weather, not by the employee. & # 39;
China has punished unruly travelers to raise public awareness of travel etiquette and to maintain the national social credit system.
Travelers designated by the authorities as & # 39; uncivilized & # 39; are considered, get a & # 39; bad behavior record & # 39; for up to ten years, which will probably limit their future travel and harm their social credit points.
Since 2014, the country has around 13 million & # 39; unreliable & # 39; blacklisted people and banned the sharing of trains and planes.
