Brazilian holiday travelers, incensed about an overbooked flight, stormed an airport tarmac to prevent a commercial jet from taking off…

Wednesday’s protest happened after a group of about 30 travelers with tickets from Sao Paulo to the northeastern city of Recife waited more than 40 minutes aboard an airline transport bus outside a Tam Linhas Aereas SA jet at one of Sao Paulo’s two airports, Brazil’s Globo TV reported.

When the crew closed the jet’s door because the plane was full, some of the passengers got off the bus in an attempt to stop the plane from leaving. Police removed them from the tarmac, but the flight was delayed for more than two hours. Last week, Brazilians invaded runways at several jammed airports plagued by delays just before Christmas.
