Yesterday, a Middle East Airlines on route from Beirut to London had to make an emergency landing Wednesday at Istanbul’s airport after a fight broke out between two passengers. According to LBCI, one of the passengers got into a dispute with an air hostess then assaulted her. This prompted the other passenger to rise to her defence and engage in a fistfight with the first passenger. The captain of the plane decided to land in Istanbul, according to emergency procedures and the police were called in to arrest the assaulter. This video was just released of when the fight first broke out. We get to see the first punch thrown. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bVjWkAM3Rc
