The report said the couple, who were part of a tour group from China, was earlier angry when they discovered that they were not sitting together as seats had been assigned in alphabetical order. A flight assistant managed to find them adjoining seats but the couples were still complaining loudly. Later in the night, the woman bought instant noodles on the flight and asked for boiling water. When the assistant brought the water, the woman threw it in her face.
The woman’s boyfriend then stood up in the cabin and threatened to bomb the plane. A statement from the airline said the incident forced the captain to return to Don Mueang and the couples were asked to get off. The airline said police later took the couple and their two friends to Don Mueang police station where they settled the dispute with the flight assistant and the captain. A TAA spokesman said the Chinese woman was allowed to leave Thailand on a TAA flight back to Nanjing after she agreed to pay an undisclosed amount of compensation to the affected cabin crew member who was not dangerously injured. They were on board Thai AirAsia flight FD 9101 bound for Nanjing which took off at 5.55pm on Thursday with 174 passengers and four cabin squad. Watch on Video:
