Two Chinese travellers sparked outrage on a flight recently as they filled their hand luggage with wine from the drinks trolley.

The unidentified pair, who were on board Air France flight AF132 from Paris to Wuhan in central China, are understood to have ignored objections from fellow passengers after they each took around eight bottles of wine.

According to the South China Morning Post, a woman called Wen Fei described her efforts to intervene on China’s Twitter-equivalent Weibo and posted a photo of one of the men.

Suggesting that the men were drunk, she recalled their aggressive behaviour as she reported: “They asked me to back off if I ever wanted to leave Wuhan in one piece.” Eventually the pilot arrived to ask the men to stop fighting with Wen.

“This kind of behaviour is demeaning for the Chinese travelling abroad,” she remarked, a comment that sparked similar stories of bad behaviour shown by Chinese travellers, especially government officials, from fellow web users.
