I just heard a story on the radio and decided to do a quick google search: -

Next time you're flying in or out of Hong Kong, you may want to think twice about ordering that third G&T. Hong Kong Airlines has begun training its cabin crew in the ancient Chinese martial art of wing chun – a branch of kung fu – as a means of restraining unruly passengers.

According to the airline, wing chun – which may have its origins in the mythical tale of a young woman, Yim Wing Chun, who used the technique to defeat her warlord suitor in a boxing match – is ideal for in-flight combat, because it employs short, swift movements and can be practised in a confined space. Two weeks ago, a female crew member apparently put her wing chun training to the test, successfully subduing a difficult male passenger on a flight from Beijing.

"Normally, female cabin crew can't handle a fat guy, especially if he's drunk," Eva Chan, a spokeswoman for the airline, explained with admirable candour, "but because of the training, she can handle it quite easily."

Better than the thai airline actively recruiting transgender stewards I guess.

I think I would prefer THIS.

That would make me pay more attention.

If the stewardesses are good looking though, would be tempted to be unruly?
