Ryanair passengers run down aisle to get involved in mass brawl on flight

Punches were thrown when a huge brawl broke out between passengers during a Ryanair flight back from Malaga.

Footage shows two male passengers running down the aisle towards a fight between a man and a woman at the front of the plane. Ryanair staff desperately try to separate the passengers who shout and throw punches at each other.

The two men are thought to know the woman as well as another female passenger, who can be heard screaming their names from further back in the plane, telling them to ‘get back’.

They later return to their seats as the man and woman are separated.

Police are then seen boarding the flight returning from Malaga, Spain, to Manchester on Monday evening.

A man can be seen at the end of the video footage asking a nearby passenger ‘what are you wearing, you tramp? Listen, do you wanna go?’ before a woman holds him back.

The fight started after a man allegedly threatened a female passenger, according to other passengers.

The person who filmed the fight and asked to remain anonymous, said: ‘It was disgusting, really.

‘We were about 20 minutes from landing and I’m not sure what happened but the woman in the black jumper started laying into this guy in a big way.

‘It wasn’t a light slap or anything, she was going at him hell for leather.

‘Suddenly three or four people ran to the front and got involved – there were just fists flying everywhere.

‘Some of them were really big guys and the Ryanair staff separated them eventually but at a point, they had completely lost control of the situation.

‘The staff got the woman to sit down behind us so I asked her what happened and she said that a man had been making threats that he was going to kill her.

‘The police came onboard and nobody could get off until they verified who was involved in the fight so we showed an officer our video footage so they could see who it was.

‘The police got everybody involved in the fight to stay on the plane and we heard an officer tell the Ryanair staff that they could need to use tasers.’

A spokesperson for Ryanair said: ‘The crew of this flight from Malaga to Manchester requested police assistance upon arrival after several passengers became disruptive shortly before arrival. This is now a matter for local police.’

Greater Manchester Police has been contacted for a comment.
