A flight being cancelled after being delayed for hours is infuriating. While most may just protest, one man in Pakistan’s Islamabad International Airport set his luggage on fire in anger.  Now, a video of the incident is going viral.

In the video, a middle-aged man is seen slowly touching his burnt clothes and when a man approaches with a fire extinguisher, the man kicks the cylinder aside. According to a Dawn report, the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight PK-607 scheduled to take off at 7am was first delayed due to technical reasons, and later cancelled due to bad weather.

Luckily, the fire was put out by firefighters from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Apart from the man who set his luggage on fire, other passengers also protested after the fight was delayed. Passengers reportedly chanted slogans against the national carrier.
