Nguyen Thi Hang : Passenger fined for slapping face of Vietnam carrier employee

A Vietnamese woman was fined VND7.5 million, which roughly equates to US$347 – after slapping an airline worker who forced her to weigh her luggage.

The incident took place on April 7 when Nguyen Thi Hang, 35, was checking in at the airport for a VietJet Air flight to Hanoi.

The ground service worker asked her to weigh her carry-on items, which looked heavier than the permitted 7 kg.

However, Hang, hailing from Hung Yen Province near Hanoi, ignored the request and started to yell at the worker before slapping her face.

Hang’s baggage turned out to weigh more than 7 kg.
