2 months ago 104 Samuel

Many probably wonder what happens if a fight was to initiate in a flying metal cylinder. Well, this group of 7 British men found that out the hard way.

EasyJet flight EZY1903 was diverted to Faro, Portugal on its journey to Tenerife as a group of 4 passengers initiated a fight in the rear of the aircraft. The fight began about 2 hours after takeoff as the group started punching each other. A flight attendant quickly tried to break up the conflict, strategically positioning one man at the front of the aircraft.

Passengers realised that this wouldn’t work as several minutes later, the man vaulted from his seat back to the rear of the aircraft to initiate yet another fight. This time, other passengers involved themselves in the breaking up of the fight, including 3 men who were travelling as part of a Stag-Do, who also decided to join in with the fight, throwing punches at both the group of 4 and the attendants. 

It was reported that one of the members of the group spat in the eye of a woman who was assisting in the breaking up of the conflict. Witnesses state that they heard a man shout, “He {removed} spat on a woman - disgusting {removed}” over the screams of fellow passengers.

Passengers were impressed by how the situation was dealt with by the crew and security once they had landed. EasyJet officials said in a statement:

“EasyJet’s cabin crew are trained to assess and evaluate all situations and to act quickly and appropriately to ensure that the safety of the flight and other passengers is not compromised at any time.”

The aircraft was delayed by two and a half hours due to the incident.
