Singapore's Straits Times today reported a Singapore Airlines flight stewardess suing a passenger's wife for slapping her on a flight to Japan last year.
It is time that the crew take to task those abusive and violent passengers. I hope the court would take a serious view of such cases of assault or violence towards the service providers.
As the matter is before the court,I would not want to comment further.
In the past,during my 35 years of flying with SIA, I had also been threatened and abused by passengers. In the old days,we were discouraged from filing police reports against abusive and violent passengers. We were told to "close one eye". It is not so these days as younger crew are better informed,bolder and not as "hungry" as we were back then in the 1960s through the 1980s.
