Airline pays little for broken antiques
A man has failed in his bid to win 2.2 million yuan ($363,000) in compensation for three porcelain antiques damaged during air shipment, receiving only 500 yuan from the airline, according to a court ruling. The man, surnamed Liu, filed a lawsuit against Xiamen Airlines after he found his three antiques were damaged on a flight from Beijing to Fujian province in April 2013. The court said Liu had failed to show any documents to prove their value. News reported on Thursday. The monitoring device, called a black box for elevators, has a sensor attached to the elevator or escalator, which can issue real-time warnings of malfunctions via the Internet to maintenance workers’ cellphones.
