A passenger was fined US$240 Friday for harassing and attacking flight attendants of Vietnam Airlines.
Officials from the national carrier said that around four hours after the plane took off, Nguyen Ngoc Duc, who was flying from Germany to Vietnam, started to tease an attendant who was serving him.
After the male deputy head of the attendants' team ask him to stop, Duc turned to attack the man and nearby passengers, forcing the team to tie him up, Nguoi Lao Dong reported.
He received the cash penalty from the Southern Airports Authority, the highest in Vietnam for passengers' causing disorder on a flight. Duc was found under the influence of alcohol at the time.
The 31 year old later admitted his fault, but offered the excuse that he was on special medication that had caused the alcohol to act faster. The man is a German citizen of Vietnamese origin, and he does not speak Vietnamese fluently.
Around a month ago, 46-year-old Vietnamese police officer Quach Thang also had to pay a cash fine after he harassed a stewardess on a Vietnam Airlines flight.
