NEXT time you travel with Hong Kong Airlines, you might want to think a little harder about behaving loutishly. The carrier's cabin crew have been given compulsory training in wing chun, a form of kung fu that is ideal for close-quarter combat.
A spokeswoman for the airline told the Sunday Morning Post about a recent in-flight application of the new skills:
One of the passengers was sick but he was probably drunk and felt unwell. The crew member attended to him and she realised her fitness was helping her, especially because the guy was quite heavy.An article on Wing Chun wouldn't be complete without a video of Bruce Lee, would it?
Normally, a female cabin crew can't handle a fat guy, especially if he's drunk, but because of the training, she can handle it quite easily.
