CityNews – After a brawl which resulted in one man attacking another man with metal cutlery Thai Airways are now considering the use of plastic knives, forks, and spoons.

Chatree Pongsak of Thai Airway’s flight operations department told the press that stainless steel could become a thing of the past after the bust-up that took place well into a journey from Bangkok to Beijing, THAI flight TG674. Cabin crew eventually broke up the scuffle.

Three Chinese men were involved in the fight and one man sustained injuries after being attacked with a metal knife and fork, it was reported.

The first trial of plastic cutlery will be on Bangkok-Los Angeles flights, and if the new tablewear should prove successful then the switch will be made on other routes starting with flights to China.
