China probes Qatar Airways' landing in Shanghai

China's Civil Aviation Administration says it is investigating a report that a local airline balked at yielding to a Qatar Airways jet requesting to land because it was short of fuel.
The administration said Thursday that the jet from Doha was circling over Shanghai's Pudong International Airport on Aug. 13 due to bad weather when it radioed it was short of fuel and asked to land instead at Shanghai's other main airport, Hongqiao International.
It said a Juneyao Airlines jet allegedly refused to make way, saying it too was short of fuel.
Both jets landed without mishap. The aviation authority said any violation of regulations would be severely punished.
