You know you are in the fruit and food cornucopia of Southeast Asia when an airline prohibits carriage of ‘smelly food.’
Among the items VietJet reserves the right to refuse in baggage: “Smelly food (durian, jackfruit, fish sauce…).”
It would be festive to share a giant jackfruit or durian on a flight, though at least half the passengers would be queasy. I can do without the fish sauce, not a taste I have been able to acquire.
Further on, a nice turn of phrase, perhaps inspired by recent incidents with Chinese passengers in Thailand, “If we decide to divert the aircraft for the purpose of offloading you, you shall be liable for all costs that we incur as a result of such diversion.” Does smuggling durian constitute reason to offload?
To crib from Deltalina, “Durian is not allowed.”
