Video emerged online showing three air passengers having a brawl over cabin luggage compartment space on an Air China flight.
One woman and a couple were in a stand-off position before throwing fists and punches, forcing other boarding passengers to wait at the aisle.
The dispute caused an one hour delay flying from Sichuan’s Dazhou Heshi Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport on October 10.
Mobile phone footage posted on Chinese social media sites shows a woman with short hair standing on a seat while vigorously slapping a man and a woman standing at the aisle.
It’s reported that the woman moved the couple’s luggage to free space for her own bag.
Onlookers heard the couple claiming that the woman threw her luggage.
The trio got into a brawl soon after the dispute.
Flight attendants had to rush in and settle the scrap before the plane took off.
