A Saudi airline delayed a domestic flight for nearly two hours after five women had a fight aboard the aircraft.

The Saudi Arabian Airlines plane was set to depart from Jeddah to Riyadh on Monday when tempers flared.

“We decided to delay the flight for around two hours. We also offloaded the five,” Saudia’s assistant manager Abdul Rahman Al-Fahd said, as quoted by the Arabic language daily Sada.

The airline has been in the spotlight this week as five Saudi Arabian Airlines’ employees at King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh were Tuesday fired from their jobs following their poor and careless handling of passengers’ luggage at the conveyor belt.
