Four passenger had to eat 66 pounds of the citrus fruit at a Chinese airport to avoid paying extra airline fees.

The four men recently gobbled 66 pounds of oranges in about 30 minutes at a Kunming airport after attempting to bring a giant box of fruit back home from a business trip in the Yunnan Province late last month.

A man, surnamed Wang, and his colleagues bought a box of oranges weighing 30 kilograms for 50 yuan during their business trip to Kunming. As they prepare to board the plane back, the airport said it was going to charge them 10 yuan for each kilogram in shipping fees for the oranges, totaling 300 yuan (about $46).

“We just stood there and ate the whole thing up. It took about 20-30 minutes,” said Wang, one of the travelers who spoke with the Global Times.

“We never want to have any oranges again,” Wang said.
