That a young Chinese man masquerading as an old Caucasian man managed to board an Air Canada flight certainly raises a few questions. That three Air Canada cabin crew ignored a passenger who warned them about the disguised man - while the plane was still on the ground in Hong Kong - rings alarm bells.
35-year old clothing retail production manager, [Nuray Kurtur-Balas], says she told the flight attendants the passenger’s heavily wrinkled face looked like plastic and didn’t match his young looking hands.
She says one flight attendant complimented her on her observation, another said he’d look into it, and the third said the man might have a medical condition—but no action was taken.
It was only after the flight took off and the man removed his mask that the air crew alerted authorities to meet the plane when it landed in Vancouver.
This is utter nonsense. That cabin crew should have informed their captain immediately about the passenger's observations and that aircraft ought to have remained safely on the ground until the issue was cleared up. Heads should roll for this.
