A total of 175 Chinese tourists stranded at Narita International Airport in Tokyo, Japan have returned home, Chinese Embassy in Japan said on Friday.

The 175 tourists, along with 5 Japanese passengers were expected to board the Jetstar Japan flight GX35 bound for Shanghai, but stranded at the airport for over 24 hours, due to flight delay caused by snowy weather condition in Shanghai on Wednesday.

According to the Chinese Embassy, one Chinese tourist had a brawl with officials at the airport after Jetstar Japan, a budget airline, did not offer any accommodation for Chinese tourists, while five Japanese tourists were escorted out of the airport by a Jestar Japan staff.

Reports suggested that the airline company did not offer a translator to the Chinese tourists for arrangement after the delay.

Those Chinese tourists returned to China at midnight Friday, the embassy said.
