In this instance, someone who can longer afford to fly with THAI or Bangkok Airways and has just discovered one of the stark, ugly realities of flying with a LCC.

So a person who chooses to pay to fly with Thai Airways is a high-so?

You'r kidding, right?

Last time we came to LOS my wife and I witnessed a mature couple having a meltdown at airport security from the second they arrived.  The last line I heard was the old boy insisting "You can't take our passports."  Then his wife stormed through security with the staff giving chase followed by the husband.  You couldn't make it up.

A wannabe "Hi-So" demanding the "peons" do as she says, and never mind the rules.  They don't apply to her. 

Sounds like the Koreans I used to see in Inchon overtime I flew, took a train, or even when they were taking a bus they would find a way to express how the rules did not apply to them.

This is not indicative of most Thais I see when I travel. As mentioned above it seems she is afflicted with a "wanna be Hi-So" disease.

The person filming the clip concedes that the woman is indeed Thai, like him.
 
He appears thoroughly embarrassed. 

I found this part of the article interesting. Looks that the chap filming was embarrassed to realise that it's not always those awful farangs who make trouble but also his own countrymen and countrywomen....welcome to reality dear Sir.

And keep people from trying to say those big rolling suitcases are a "carry on."

You should have seen all of the packages of what looked like mangoes that I saw people packing into their suitcases near the check-in line last time I was at Swampy... I think they were Korean.  I was actually amazed that they fit it all into a couple big suitcases.  (Why they didn't just pack the bag before they left home, I don't know.  I've never understood the people I see at airports packing and re-packing their bags.  Okay, if you turn out to be a pound over and need to transfer a pair of shoes or something, I get it, but why don't they estimate the weight, and figure out what they need to check vs. carry, or whatever else it is they're taking care of, at home?)

This is a fair statement. Of course most are not like this. However, 2 things:

 

1. There is a much higher percentage of Thais who have similar tendencies than we might find in many other parts of the world,

 

2. Many Thais would react similarly if they thought they were entitled, and being entitled only means their real or perceived social ranking relative to the other person.

 

This is how most of Asia works, in general, with the exception of a country like Japan.

This lady thinks that rules do not apply to her. La-dee-da. 

 

I have had to adjust my carry on in the past because it was a small part of 1 kg over. 

Rules are rules. They apply same to all.

Well i must lift up my hand and say that I am guilty of excess carry on I often go to 10 kgs but if I am ask to weigh I will unzip one zip take out my laptop then weigh again which brings it back to 6.5 kgs. But I do not loose it like this women, 14 kgs plus another bag WOW. It blows me out how many overweight bags get on these days.  I have noticedin Australia jetstar virgin are really clamping down on it purely and solely for a money grap as they get alot of extra check in bags now and of course you have to pay extra anyhow there's my rant for the day. Take good care out there people. 

The same for me, 10 kg for the bag and you can have a 2nd bag if for laptop, only that. (and for womans their ''purse''  ) The carriers sees it as one bag together, but never weigh the laptop.
