'Hangry' women causes commotion over in-flight meal

POLICE boarded an Air New Zealand flight from Auckland upon its arrival in Shanghai after a woman on board "nearly caused a riot" over her inflight meal.

TVNZ reporter Katie Bradford tweeted about the incident, joking the woman's meltdown was the "definition of hangry."

"Police boarded my flight in Shanghai because a woman nearly caused a riot when they didn't have the meal she wanted," she wrote.

"Definition of Hangry."

Air New Zealand said in a statement police met NZ289 on arrival in Shanghai this morning after a "passenger disturbance" on board, Fairfax reported.

The airline could not comment further as the matter was now with police, a spokeswoman said.
