Passengers broke into an argument while onboard a Ryanair flight after facing hours of delays at London Stansted Airport on February 7.Sakib Ahmed was on the flight, which was bound to Malaga, Spain, and managed to record video of the altercation between the other passengers. The video was posted to Twitter on February 16 and shows one man appearing to yell at another group of three men, who seemed to be upset about the delays.Once the passengers were able to board the plane, they were already delayed by 3 hours, and were then told by the flight crew that they would need to wait longer due to French Air Traffic Control strikes.Ahmed informed Storyful that the three passengers featured in the video who are engaging in an argument with another man were drinking alcohol before the plane took off, and once the news of further delays was delivered from the cockpit, tensions rose.“This caused the plane atmosphere to be a lot more angry naturally and those 3 passengers that were intoxicated kept swearing and shouting abuse to the air hostess. Another passenger got angry and kept shouting at them and there were back and forth throughout the flight,” Ahmed told Storyful.After several hours of frustrating delays, the plane eventually left the tarmac and was on its way to Malaga. “Felt like the longest flight of my life,” Ahmed told Storyful.
