That’s disturbing. The woman had a few classic quotes: “This is an aircraft. Gawddammit”.

As someone who's lived in Manchester for the past 8.5 years.... I'm not surprised one bit that it was a flight from MAN. I'm just mildly surprised it was on the KLM flight not easyJet!

Was their any reason why they fought ? Were some Man City fans and some were Man U fans ? Were they arguing over the armrests ? Was alcohol use involved ? Arguments over having to wear masks ? A bachelor/stag party group going on a sex and drinking holiday ? No matter what, this kind of behaviour is unacceptable and sadly supports stereotypes of UK males. I hope they enjoyed the special accommodations of His Majesty of the Netherlands, learning intimately the Netherlands criminal justice processes as well as parted from 100's of UK Pounds at an unfavorable exchange rate.

I’m British and some of us are the trashy of Europe.
Not new either.
From a schoolteacher in the 1970’s commenting that after spending time as it was called then ‘on the Continent’ noticing how much littering goes on here, to football ‘supporters’ behavior which culminated in 1985 with a mass casualty event and three year ban for England clubs in Europe for several years, to who is running the country now.

And yes, we are likely the worst there for brawling, usually when drunk, on planes and/or airports.
The latter could be mitigated by restrictions on booze sales at airports but profits first.

One thing that I find disturbing (apart from the recurrence of such events in general) is that in this case the captain entered the passenger cabin attempting to calm the fighters. In my view as someone not familiar with the relevant procedures in place, isn't this a significant risk for this situation to turn into a full-fledged emergency if the captain gets hurt? Wouldn't it be preferable for the flight crew to remain locked in the flight deck and bring the aircraft to the ground ASAP?

AFAIK the flight had already landed, probably explaining why the cpt got involved.

It’s funny how all of this unruly behavior around the western countries could have a very different ending with the authorities if the passengers in question were muslims. Banned, jailed, you name it…

Uh...they're Brits. That's usually implied :rotfl:
Last time I flew to Portugal my flight landed early in the morning as flights from the U.S. usually do. At the same time a flight from the UK had arrived and half the pax were so intoxicated they could barely find their way out of the baggage claim area.

i agree. the Captain should have stayed of the flight deck. if the Captain gets hurt then the 1st officer would have to fly the plane and that would be terrifying. Just ask the Irish Mirror.

Aircraft was parked at the gate when this brawl broke out. So at not time was there any risk inflight. Call was made to the military police at Schiphol who arrived quickly and removed the party. This from a internal klm memo.

Dear Flanker7,

Thank you for this important clarification! In this case the intervention of the captain is adequate.

Best regards,

Are there any non stop flights between Manchester and Miami? There'd be lots of entertainment in both directions.

No wonder there are so many Brits in Florida, they fit right in. Is there a way we can get Spirit Airlines to launch FLL/MIA to MAN, A321-XLR? Instead of a mid cabin lav they can build a mid cabin jail cell.

Perhaps next time they will call the cabin crew.

This way they spend their holiday in jail, get a fine and probably a flight ban.

Still they can get the ferry home.

So long as we give people a "get out of jail free" card, because they have "problems' the more this will happen.

A few silly comments on here, it has to be said....

Bennett 123. ..correct. 10 year jail sentence would be a sobering thought. But too many liberal minded folks around to allow that. People have to take responsibility for their actions, period.


But contrary to popular belief alcohol can be bought and consumed before arriving at the airport. With online check ins etc intoxicated passengers can make it to the plane before any one notices. Banning it at the airport would only have a limited effect. Those that want to drink...will have a drink, even a duty free bottle if they have to.

I wonder if there has ever been a drunk passenger on a Saudia flight (having got tanked up one last time before boarding)?
Probably never been seen or heard off again.

I know people talk about banning alcohol, stereotypes, etc.
But I think the real problem sometimes lies on ground staff and, the airlines.
Why? well, why actually allow those guys in the flight in the first place if they are (as it was implied) drunk? I once flew out Bulgaria with a couple of guys on the plane who could barely walk to their seats. Surprise surprise, they did make as far as the runaway and the plane had to go back to the gate.
Roudy behaviour, drunkenness, etc... should be dealt before the flight do board up rather than on the air or on arrival.
Happens everywhere - the reason more brits (and some Americans, for example) get into the news is nothing to deal with them as a people - it is to deal with he fact that ground crew are more worried in putting the plane in the skies rather than sorting out these issues before the departure. It seems somehow acceptable or maybe in hope that nothing will pan out and they might just manage to get to the destination.
This time it nearly did.

Who says they were drunk when they boarded? It is almost impossible to stop people drinking their own booze "smuggled" on board.

You want to entirely ban alcohol on ALL Flights because of a few stupid people ? That is insane and it would NEVER work. It did not work during Prohibition and it would absolutely not solve the problem on Aircraft either. In-fact I'm betting it would exponentially make problems worse. I know for damn sure if i was getting on ANY flight and they said "Sorry no more Alcohol on board because of a few other people who created issues" I would go fucking INSANE. You try doing Anchorage Alaska to Phoenix - Phoenix to Boston, Massachusetts to Anchorage to Seattle/Portland - Seattle/Portland to Boston back and forth round trip every few weeks or more WITHOUT any Alcohol.....

Shameful scenes.

You cannot ban alcohol because of a few idiots but I do think that better policing needs to be introduced, whether that be at security, at the gate or onboard. Over the limit...sorry your not flying. I would be the first to admit that that some of these people just hurl abuse but somehow we need to get on top of this.

I sincerely hope these guys are banned and charged with assault etc.
