In situations like a female attacks someone, a security or airport staff, most would try to defuse it from escalating to that sage if possible while calling for assistance and in worst case fend them off as the situation progresses...again depending on how aggressive she can get. Easy to think about it in hind sight or be reading a manual and some mock exercise on it but when the real thing happens..it is never "by the book"
In most situation there should be enough female staffers about too (given it is a airport crawling with people) and if not, any disturbance like this would initially be observed from a distance alerted by people on the ground and the relevant reinforcement personnel will already be dispatch to look into the situation.
If a woman attacker is deem to be very aggressive and clearly shows she is more then capable of causing hurt physically or with an object(s), sometime you can't be waiting till it gets that bad that you then react so you have to stray calm and defuse it as much as possible without you too resorting to violence on her. Again...if you do what is right and use appropriate action and if you now have to get physical meaning to subduing him or her to the ground for her own good and others safety then do it. As I said, the entire airport is well documented with cameras video taping the scene. Of course that could work for or against you depending on what you do to him/her in the course of subduing them. (use of necessary or excessive force)
This happens not just at airports but everywhere too and you notice sometime as the situation is being dealth with and defused, even the police would whip out a camcorder to film the entire situation. Women police officers are dispatch too in case they are dealing with women suspects or situations where women are involved.
And as you can see from the YouTube video which lasted for sometime, you don't see any authority or airport staff getting into the fray.,,,but close at hand as a precautionary. That is because, she has family members trying to calm her down. It also give the authority time to observe from a distance to see how best to handle it before they intervene. To see if it gets too much that they have to call in the relevant personnel to deal with it or her own family is able to calm her down and go off. So in the mean time they just hanging back and observe.
Throwing a hissy fit like a little demented brat like this...she lucky she is in HK. Like someone mentioned...if this was in London....good luck to her. I still suspect she is "playing it up" to the camera for one reason or another.

If she is the last person and she is not at the boarding gate at the stipulated time(gate close time), she will not be allowed to board and her bags will be off loaded.
If she is not the last person and airline staff are still waiting for other people on a connecting flight that will be arriving in the next few minutes, she might be allowed to board.
If she continues to create a disturbance, she might not be allowed to take the airline forever, depending on the airline in question. Almost all airlines have bar lists that prevent a passenger from taking a particular airline due to certain incidents.
If the passenger deliberately causes a flight to be delayed due to reasons like those in the video, some airlines do take action to recover the costs associated with the delay.
Generally, most ground handling agents will leave the person alone and after a while tell the person when he/she has calm down to go to the transfer counter / airline counter to arrange for a next flight to their destination.
Different airlines/ground handling agents have different procedures for staff being hit. Generally depending on wherethere the staff would want to file a police report. If the staff would want to make a police report, airport police will be called in.
If a staff is being "hit" on by a passenger(as in being interested in the particular staff and would like to ask him/herout blah blah blah), discretion would used lah and most of the time, airport police would not be called in lah

Which also explains why staff are not able to find passengers frequently using the CCTV cameras and have to do a walking search.
London heathrow airport has one of the most CCTV cameraa and you still have people being classified as missing before being found. The longest time a person went there missing in a terminal was for 2 weeks.
's no fly list or specific airlines. Bummer but it happens man. Imagine that...got money also can not fly heh... including internal flights hor. So imagine you live on the west and want to see your relative on the east side of the US.. how to get there? By car, train or bus...imagine how long to travel like 4-6,000 miles across the US.
Google about it...you will find scary stories about it. Even having a name sounding similar can get you red flagged. Here's something to get you started:
