Chinese airline passengers detained over ground crew assault

Posted:

BEIJING (AP) -- Police in southern China have detained three airline passengers after they were caught on video slapping, verbally abusing and throwing food at ground staff in anger over a delayed flight.

Video of Monday's incident at the airport in the city of Changsha has circulated widely on the Internet as the latest example of bad behavior by Chinese airline passengers.

The three passengers had apparently become upset after their flight to the southern resort city of Sanya was delayed. As female staff tried to mollify passengers, two men and a woman shouted, flung the contents of a lunch box and finally slapped one of the staffers on the face.

The three passengers were detained by police, according to the website of the Communist Party newspaper People's Daily.
