Woman Fined For Kicking, Threatening VietJet Employee Over Carry-On Luggage

Nobody likes being told their luggage is overweight when checking in for a flight. But while most of us reluctantly pay the fee, others take to violence and threats to express their frustrations.

This was the case at Tan Son Nhat Airport last Thursday when a 36-year-old Hue woman kicked and threatened numerous VietJet Air employees when she was informed that her carry-on baggage was over the allotted weight. 

According to Tuoi Tre, the incident occurred when Ngo Thi Thu Dong was checking in for her flight to Singapore with two bags and a baby stroller, even though she didn’t take a baby along with her.

When an airline employee pointed out that she was bringing on 27kg of carry-on baggage, far over the 7kg allotment, she began to slam her hands on the counter and said that she would be brining the stroller onboard regardless.

Dong eventually seemed to relent, telling staff that she would leave the stroller at the airport with a relative and continued on to her flight.

As she left the terminal to board the shuttle bus to the plane, a VietJet employee noticed that she was still in possession of the stroller and repeated the regulations.

Dong then launched into a tirade of vitriol and threats. She only conceded when was informed that she would be kicked-off her flight unless she gave up the stroller.

After passing through the gate, she went back to guard that had stopped her earlier and kicked them in the thigh before running for the shuttle bus.

Airport security removed her from the bus and proceeded to fine her VND7.5 million for her actions.
