Virgin Atlantic says it is investigating the case of a Chinese passenger who claimed she was verbally abused by a fellow passenger and later a flight attendant while flying from London to Shanghai.

The passenger, Liu Wei, said she was onboard flight VS250 on Mar. 1, when a Caucasian man suddenly stood up, went over to her and yelled: “You f**king Chinese pig! Get the f**k out of here!”

He allegedly continued to repeat the abuse, despite attempts to stop him by other passengers including a British man and his Chinese wife, Liu said.
