A passenger was fined for slapping an airline employee in Vietnam on Saturday after the worker asked to weigh her bag.
Tuoi Tre News reported
that the woman, Nguyen Thi Hang, hadn't even boarded her plane when the incident occurred.
Nguyen made it through security at the Tan Son Nhat International airport in Ho Chi Minh City and was at the gate when an employee of VietJet Air asked her if her bag met all the carry-on requirements.
Like many airlines in the U.S., VietJet Air requires all carry-on luggage to measure less than 56x36x23 centimeters (22x14x9 inches) and weigh less than 7kg (about 15.5 pounds).
After weighing it, Nguyen's bag was indeed over the weight limit.
It's unclear if any argument ensued, but soon enough Nguyen became heated and proceeded to give the employee five to the face.
Security was called immediately, and Nguyen was detained. Tran Doan Mau, director of the Southern Airports Authority, issued her a statement of what happened, and she signed it — agreeing to a $345 fine.
