VietNamNet Bridge - On a flight of an international airline to Tan Son Nhat airport on November 3, a drunk male passenger "passed water" on a female passenger because he thought she was ... the toilet.





On the evening of November 3, the security forces of Tan Son Nhat airport, HCM City, had reported a rare incident occurring on a flight of an international airline from Doha (Qatar) to HCM City.

While the aircraft was in flight, a Polish man who was drunk did not go to the toilet, but pissed on a German woman who sat beside him.

Startled awake due to the "flush," the woman shouted as she realized the situation.

When the aircraft landed at the Tan Son Nhat airport, the Polish man sobered up. He and the German passenger reached an agreement so the woman did not sue against the man. The airline did not recommend the security force of Tan Son Nhat airport to handle the above rude behavior.

Therefore, the security force of Tan Son Nhat airport only recorded the case and did not impose penalties on the Polish man.

In the morning on October 25, the captain of a flight of Air France had to ask for the assistance of the security force of Tan Son Nhat Airport to handle a drunk man on the plane.

After an over 10 hour flight from Paris to Ho Chi Minh City, when the plane was about to land, a 43-year-old French passenger asked the stewardess to serve him with beer. The stewardess refused and explained that it was not the time for food and drink serve. The passenger immediately shouted and threatened to burn the plane if he was not served with beer.

The captain had to ask for the intervention of the Security Division of Tan Son Nhat Airport.
