Bangkok-Kolkata flight mid-air fight: A full-blown mid-air brawl between a few passengers was caught on camera onboard the Bangkok-Kolkata Thai Smile Airways flight on December 27. The incident happened when a heated argument between two passengers turned into a physical fight.
According to the video of the altercation which has gone viral on social media, two passengers can be seen involved in a heated conversation while one of the crew members is trying to calm down the situation. However, the two passengers didn’t listen to the flight attendant.
As the brawl turned ugly, one of them is heard saying, “…haath neeche rakh (keep your hands down)…” and starts hitting the other passenger. Soon, the former’s friends also join the fight. Though the one who was being physically assaulted didn’t hit back.
