It’s fair to say that people can get a bit rowdy when they’re heading on holiday after they’ve had a few drinks at the airport, but there’s never really any excuse for a full on brawl on a plane when you’re heading to your holiday destination.

Unfortunately though, this is exactly what’s happened to Ryanair passengers who were on the 6:10 am flight from Glasgow to Tenerife on Saturday after there was an almighty ruckus that ended up with one passenger having their nose bitten off. Video of the incident was filmed by passenger Ben Wardrop, who also explained the situation in his own words:
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.
Sounds like an awful way to start your holiday hey, especially if you were the guy just trying to break it up and ended up with your nose being bitten off. Not ideal at all.
Seems absolutely ridiculous that these guys would be so pissed up on a 6am flight, but I guess the fact that bars are open 24 hours at the airport kinda encourage that behaviour. I suppose it’s pretty difficult to even get to the airport at that time so you might as well head to the airport for 10pm and just post up until they call your flight. Makes sense I guess, as long as you don’t end up scrapping on the plane and getting arrested.
