An elderly passenger on Jiangxi Air had a unique weapon of choice when she got into an altercation with a fellow passenger. 

She threatened to throw up on a young woman with whom she had gotten into a dispute over a much-coveted window seat. 

The incident occurred on June 20, 2023 on a Jiangxi Airlines flight from Qingdao International Airport (TAO) to Shenyang Taoxian International Airport (SHE).

The young woman filmed and shared the video on Chinese social media channels. 

According to the South China Morning Post (SCMP), the woman boarded the aircraft to find that her assigned window seat was already occupied by the older woman, who was meant to be seated somewhere else. 

When she refused to swap seats, she said that the elderly passenger began to verbally abuse her. 

A video clip of the incident was also shared on TikTok. 

“Since you are young, you should favor my interests,” the older woman said in the video.

“She said she wanted to sit beside the window. She said she had hypertension and heart disease. If I did not give her the window seat, she threatened to vomit on me. She said if she got sick, she would make me take responsibility,” the young woman said.

“We noticed that two passengers were involved in a dispute. We mediated their quarrel and handled it according to the rules. We took the older passenger to another seat to separate them,” an airline official said, as published by SCMP.
