British Passengers Fight On Flight To Ibiza
Two British tourists had to be restrained after fighting on a flight from Amsterdam to Ibiza.
Footage has been shared online showing a number of passengers attempting to stop the brawl between the men, both of whom refused to wear their face masks, the airline said.
According to reports, one of the men involved in the scuffle was drunk when things kicked off mid-flight last Friday (31 July).
In the clip, other passengers can be heard urging the men to stop, with one reminding them that children were on board the plane.
At the end of the video, one of the men can be seen lying face down on the floor of the aisle, with his hands behind his back and several other passengers on top of him.
The video was posted on Instagram by an account called The Mic High Club, with the caption: "Panic and violent brawl! Unruly English passenger onboard KLM flight to Ibiza, he had been drinking Gregus vodka.
"They refused to wear face masks. 2 arrests were made."
In a statement responding to reports of the video, a spokesperson for KLM claimed that two passengers were arrested after an altercation on the flight.

"The pilot informed the local authorities and upon arrival, both passengers were arrested. The flight safety was not compromised during the flight."
However, a spokesman for the Civil Guard in Majorca said on Monday (3 August): "Passengers were identified but no arrests took place."
A woman recently refused to wear a mask in a bakery because she said trousers don't stop the smell of farts so masks won't stop coronavirus.
Footage has been posted online showing the moment employees at a Panera Bread outlet in Chico, California, refused to serve a customer after she took exception to being asked to cover her face.
Last month, the UK government announced that face masks would be compulsory in shops in England.
Speaking during a visit to the London Ambulance Service, Boris Johnson said: "They have a great deal of value in confined spaces where you're coming into contact with people you don't normally meet.
"The scientific evaluation of face coverings and their importance on stopping aerosol droplets, that's been growing, so I do think that in shops it is very important to wear a face covering if you're going to be in a confined space and you want to protect other people and receive protection in turn."
