Passenger fined US$86 for burning tissue paper on flight The Northern Airports Authority has just imposed a fine of VND2 million (US$86) on a male passenger using lighter to burn tissue paper on a Vietnam Airlines’ flight. On November 2, the flight VN243 on Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City route was forced to pause its takeoff and return the apron as a male passenger on seat No.20A suddenly put out the flame to burn a tissue paper. Security staffs of the Noi Bai International Airport were promptly present on the aircraft to settle down the incident. The passenger was then handed over to the authorities of Noi Bai Airport.
