A screenshot captured from a video clip shows in the background an aviation officer talking to a person lying on the aerobridge allegedly causing a delay to a Shanghai-bound flight from Suvarnabhumi airport recently.

A mother has stopped a commercial plane from taking off by schedule at Suvarnabhumi airport so her daughter who was reportedly shopping at the airport's duty-free zone could get on board.

According to media reports, some of which included a video clip posted on Wednesday, flight 9C8892 of China's Spring Airlines from Suvarnabhumi to Shanghai was delayed for 30 minutes.

They said a mother lay down on an aerobridge to prevent the flight carrying 160 other passengers from closing its door and taking off because her daughter was still shopping inside the Bangkok airport.

The flight eventually took off after the pair agreed to switch to another flight.

The video clip was initially distributed through China's social media. Reports said many local people condemned the behaviour and demanded aviation organisations blacklist the two people.
