Dramatic footage has emerged of yet another fight on a Ryanair flight, a fight broke out involving two men, blood was splattered across the cabin.

The airline confirmed police officers in Tenerife were called to meet the Ryanair flight as it touched down on Saturday.

Ben Wardrop who filmed the incident told the Press Association, “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, 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.

“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.”

A spokeswoman for Ryanair 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.”

In February a flight from Glasgow airport to Malaga was diverted, due to a full-blown “fist fight” broke out at the rear of the plane.

Ryanair was forced to land the plane in Madrid, where Spanish police took the disruptive passenger away, the flight then continued on to Malaga.
