Being encapsulated in an aluminium toilet roll holder is bad enough, as the quality of the air is not so good, all that bacteria floating around and which we breath in from each other, then to put the cherry on the cake, we have the hoards of our very polite sociable travellers coughing, sneezing, hawking, spitting, farting openly, not only that but when they sneeze they turn to sneeze all over someone else. Do they not know that 'coughs and sneezes spread deceases', so keep them to yourself and learn some basic manners.

"Like every culture though, Chinese have their strengths and weaknesses."

Are they better at spelling compared to foreigners ( with a "g" ) !?

But I have to admit that these passengers are not this way because they are horrible people or have  ...

I don't know if this is the cause but I would certainly agree with the results that you describe. Perhaps another comparison that is often made is China's fairly sudden change-over from bikes to motor vehicles: I am often told that the reason why some Chinese drivers are so poor is that they have just graduated from riding a bicycle and believe that similar driving methods can be used when handling a car in traffic i.e. make up the rules as you go along.

Mostly I have had no problems with Chinese passengers apart from their bizarre wish to launch out of their seats as soon as the plane touches down - when they will have to wait at least another ten minutes for the doors to open. As you comment, airport management is more often quite poor with frequent alterations of departure gates, and pathetic explanations about late arrivals / departures. Once the passengers at the airport where I was also waiting were told that arrival planes were delayed due to "wind" ! At another time when travelling from Guilin I landed in Shenzhen to be told that absolutely none of the passengers' baggage had been stowed on board ! The mind boggles.
