China names and shames 5 tourists over bad behavior, raises possibility of airline black list

China's tourism authority is naming and shaming another five tourists for bad behavior and says it is working with airlines on a possible flying ban.

They include two women and a man who brawled after one woman's seat was bumped on a flight from Cambodia to the western city of Chengdu, forcing them to be taken off the flight. Another fought with a Japanese convenience store clerk and the last was involved in a dispute over tickets to a western China scenic site.

Their names and a description of their alleged misbehavior were entered onto a National Tourism Administration list and will remain there for up to three years.

Over that period, they can be refused service by travel agents, airlines, hotels and scenic sites.
