Four women were forced to serve five days in detention for disrupting order on public transportation after breaking out into a brawl over seat adjustments on a Shenzhen-bound flight.
The whole ordeal happened about 30 minutes after Shenzhen Airlines flight ZH9724 departed from Dalian, Liaoning province this past Monday.

Two female passengers in row 19, both in their 30s, decided to make themselves a bit more comfortable by reclining the backs of their seats, as one often does on an airplane. Upset, the two women behind them, both in their 50s, asked the passengers if they would please adjust their seats upright.
We’re assuming that their request was denied, because immediately after, some harsh words were exchanged and a physical fight erupted in the aisle. The women continued pulling each other’s hair until flight crew had to come break it up.
Five minutes later the fight started up again, and the two older women had to be seated behind the cockpit, according to China Daily, citing an Modern Express report.
All four women were escorted off the plane during a layover in Nantong city, Jiangsu province, where they will remain in detention.

The younger of the four women, all from Liaoning, were heading to Shenzhen for shopping, while the older women planned on joining a tour group to travel in Thailand after transferring in Shenzhen.
