Netizens have branded an exasperated Singaporean traveller who was stranded at a Bangkok airport for 24 hours as a disgrace to the country after he was caught on camera throwing a temper tantrum over a meal voucher.

The dispute erupted when the man who was one of several passengers stranded at Suvarnabhumi airport on 29 Nov after Jetstar flight 3K514 was delayed received overnight accommodation at an inn and a 250 baht meal voucher (about S$10) from the airport staff.

The traveller was incensed to receive the meal voucher which wouldn’t even cover a bowl of noodles which would cost 360 baht (about S$15).

In a video that has been circulating online, the man can be seen gesticulating wildly as he shouted at the airport staff who tried to keep him calm:
