They then requested hot water when the plane was climbing, which was served only after the plane reached cruising altitude, according to Shenzhen Satellite TV, citing a passenger surnamed Wu.The man, already annoyed by the water delay, had another fight with the flight attendant over payment and a receipt for the hot water, Wu said.”A flight attendant who could speak Chinese came over to explain the situation, but when she turned around, the woman poured the hot water on her back,” said another passenger surnamed Zhou.Pictures on Weibo show the flight attendant crying while covering her face. A video posted online by a passenger on the same flight shows a man screaming at flight attendants while threatening to bomb the aircraft.After the air crew demanded an apology, the mans girlfriend climbed over the back seats, threatening to jump out of the plane, all while punching the plane windows, Wu added.The in-flight brawl forced the plane to return to Don Mueng International Airport in Bangkok, where the couple and two other passengers involved were taken away by Thai police. They were required to pay compensation of 50,000 Thai Baht ($1,525) to the flight attendant, and all four passengers were fined a small amount of money.AirAsia said they will not sue the passengers.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesCultivating Chinese tourists overseas dreamsRussia joins hands with Finland and Sweden to promote red tourism among Chinese touristsCultivating Chinese tourists African dreamsIn search of the missing Chinese touristsChinese tourists to Africa on riseCultivating Chinese tourists African dreamsIn search of the missing Chinese touristsPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsGovt encourages people to work 4.5 days a weekAction to be taken as HIV cases among students riseDebate grows over reproductive rightsCountrys first bishop ordained in 3 yearsChina builds Tibetan Buddhism academy in ChengduAuthorities require reporting of HIV infections at schoolsTyphoon Soudelor kills 14 in East ChinaPolice crack down on overseas gambling siteDebate over death penalty for child traffickers goes onBeijing to tighten mail security for war anniversaryIn todays trending, beer drinking competition has contestants drinking from basins, bland watermelon leads to police case, raising money for sick child with suanlafen and heat drives monkeys to disturb residents.HighlightsGovt encourages people to work 4.5 days a weekAction to be taken as HIV cases among students riseWorlds apart and in a different classHenan tries to shake off its negative reputationHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecial50th anniversary of Tibet autonomous regionPost-90s entrepreneurs in China…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
