HONG KONG (AP) -- Cathay Pacific Airways says a passenger assaulted a crew member on a Bangkok-to-Hong Kong flight before being restrained by two passengers and other staff members.
The Hong Kong airline said in a statement Thursday that a female flight attendant was slightly injured in Monday's incident and hospitalized briefly.
Cathay thanked the two passengers, who were slightly injured but did not need to go to hospital. The other 398 passengers and 16 crew members aboard were not hurt.
Hong Kong newspapers reported that a 52-year-old Filipino man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
