Smelly Food Refused Carriage on VietJet

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…).”

VietJet Terms

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.”

Dear RPT: I am very frustrated with my family member, who is a travel advisor and enjoys spending hours on exploring and emails flights. I am proud of his hobby but when he plan travel for us, we feel so painful and overwhelmed. Should a travel consultant consolidate his thoughts and results before presenting to his clients? Should a travel consultant shoot 20 emails to his client in a week to expect the client to consolidate, read and respond? Should a travel consultant increase the time a client has to spend on travel arrangement or minimize it? Should a travel… Read more »
