Brawl Erupts on Australia to Singapore Flight
Passengers and crew are seen attempting to restrain another passenger as fists fly and people look on aghast as a mid-flight fight unfolds.
According to the man who took the video, the man started to drink heavily after it was announced that their flight was delayed.
Scoot noted that the passenger appeared normal during boarding and take-off, but he started disturbing passengers around him once the plane was in the air. The passengers were moved to other seats, and the crew was instructed not to sell alcohol to him. Soon after, he punched a fellow passenger.
The man was eventually subdued with two restraining kits, and it took five passengers to help restrain the man. Brisbane Times reported that the man was met by the Australian Federal Police and paramedics upon arrival at Sydney Airport.
As for the affected passengers, they were placed on alternative flights to Singapore. The Straits Times confirmed that they were placed on a Scoot flight and two Singapore Airlines flights.
One passenger on the flight was particularly aggrieved at the way Scoot employees handled the situation and took to Twitter to complain.
