Two Ryanair passenger started fighting on a UK flight from Glasgow Prestwick to Tenerife South that left one of them with blood dripping down his face.
The mid-air brawl started ‘over a woman not wearing her shoes’ and one Ryanair passenger had his ‘nose bitten off’. The two men have now been arrested by police.
Another passenger, Ben Wardrop filmed the incident and shared it online. He said:
‘It all started over a woman not wearing her shoes on the flight going to the toilet, and a very drunk man pulled her up about it, saying that someone would stand on her toes, then the woman’s boyfriend stepped in and tried to defuse the situation.’
‘Once the plane landed and more alcohol was consumed the man and the woman’s boyfriend started arguing, both being very drunk they started to fight.’
‘One of the cabin crew, which was a young woman aged about 24, was caught in the middle of it all and was very scared, but done a good job on defusing the men fighting.’
‘There was a family with a young boy sitting in front of us that witnessed all of the action.’
‘It was a very scary moment as it was very confined and lots of innocent people got involved due to the small space on the plane. Ryanair’s staff handled the situation very well,’ he added.
A photograph, which was posted on Twitter, shows blood on the door of an overhead luggage compartment.
A Ryanair spokeswoman said: ‘The crew of this flight from Glasgow Prestwick to Tenerife (16 Mar) requested police assistance upon arrival after two passengers became disruptive in-flight.’
‘The aircraft landed normally and police removed and detained two individuals.’
‘We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew, and aircraft is our number one priority.’
‘This is now a matter for local police.’
