Six VietJet Air flights were delayed on Saturday after a passenger developed abdominal pains shortly before taking off from Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi.
The flight, coded VJ153, was scheduled to take off from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City at 6:15 am. But when it was on the runway, a woman named Nguyen Thuy Tr. told flight attendants she was in terrible pain and required medical attention.
The captain decided to return to the terminal and informed the ground services to escort the passenger out of the plane.
The flight took off around 37 minutes later.
The next five flights scheduled to take off the same day were delayed as a result.
