Thai Airways International PCL on Wednesday clarified the details of an incident caught on video involving a mid-air fight among three Chinese tourists on a THAI flight from Bangkok to Beijing. 

The incident occurred on Feb 12 after a Chinese man refused a flight attendant’s request to return his seat to the upright position during a meal, said Chatree Pongsak, director of THAI’s flight operations safety department.

The passenger insisted he want to keep on sleeping, prompting two other Chinese, a man and a woman, who were sitting at the back, to shake his seat in a bid to force him to adjust it. A heated argument followed and turned into a fist fight, during which objects were thrown.
