WATCH: Fight breaks out on Lebanese plane
The older man is seen throwing the first punch, causing the younger passenger to hit him back in the head
A flight from Beirut to London on Wednesday made an emergency landing in Istanbul after a fight broke out between two passengers.
A recently shared video shows the two men aboard Lebanon’s Middle Eastern Airlines flight yelling back and forth before they began swinging at each other.
The older man is seen throwing the first punch, causing the younger passenger to hit him back in the head.
The pilot was then forced to make an unscheduled stop in Turkey after the brawl escalated.
The passenger filming can be heard laughing as he referred to the incident as ‘so funny’.
The quarrel was apparently sparked when one of the passengers defended the flight attendant who was allegedly assaulted by the other passenger.
