Two Men Arrested Following Bloody Brawl On Ryanair Flight

Two Men Arrested Following Bloody Brawl On Ryanair Flight

A pair of passengers on board a Ryanair flight to Tenerife were arrested on Saturday after they became embroiled in a mid-flight fight.

A video shared on Twitter shows the passengers on the flight from Glasgow brawling as crew members attempt to diffuse the situation and onlookers shout 'stop it!'.

Pictures taken in the aftermath of the fight appear to show bloodstains on the overhead cabins of the plane.

Ben Wardrop, who filmed the incident and shared the footage, said the row started over a woman not wearing her shoes and escalated rapidly from there.


He said: "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, and the man in the video with lots of blood was trying to get the man to calm down and he got hit on the nose."

Mr Wardrop added that the airline's staff handled the frightening situation well.

He said: "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."

Ryanair said police were called to meet the plane upon landing and the two men were detained.

A spokesman for the airline said: "The crew of this flight from Glasgow Prestwick to Tenerife 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."
