22 passengers on board a flight when fighting broke out have been given free flights for life by airline Hainan Airlines. The crew have been given spectacular rewards.
Chinese national media is reporting that the flight and cabin crew of the aircraft have been given large cash lump sums (equivalent to more than USD150,000 – a massive amount) plus other rewards such as apartments or cars for their actions in preventing what has, depending on whose publicity is read, an attempted hi-jacking or a brawl over who was to sit where.
This was no small scrap, involving jostling and the shouting of insults: Uighur passengers became violent and the whole crew – nine in total – became involved in some way. The result was two Uighurs were so seriously injured that they died after arrest. Four more remain in custody. The plane landed safely.
The rewards from the airline are not the only benefits: the state of Hainan and China's Civil Aviation Authority also issued substantial cash sums to be divided between the crew.
