A delayed flight left passengers at Beijing Capital International Airport frustrated on Saturday night.
Travellers were fuming after their plane, which belongs to Hainan Airlines, was grounded for more than four hours.
A scuffle broke out when several passengers tried to stop an angry woman who lashed out on a cabin crew member for the hold-up.Five passengers were taken into custody following the incident.

Shanghai was scarcely any better, with only 24 per cent of flights from Hongqiao airport leaving on time.
Not a single Chinese airport managed to get even half their flights to leave on time.
The constant delays have seen mobs of angry passengers mount at least eight large protests at departure gates in the last two months, two of which saw staff physically beaten.
There is even a new Chinese phrase for the rampaging hordes: the "kong nu zu", or "air rage tribe".
