In the video posted by Twitter user @MayaWilkinsonx, two of the men can be seen holding a passenger down in the aisle while the others rain blows on him. The captain of the flight tries to stop the flight but the group does not listen to him.
The passenger who posted the video the fight broke out between the British nationals due to one group passing a racist comment against a fellow passenger.
According to Dutch News, one of the six passengers involved in the fight was slightly injured. The Dutch Military Police who are in charge of airport security have confirmed the incident and stated that they have started an investigation into the behaviour of the six British men.
A spokesperson for the airline said on Friday: “Yesterday we had some unruly passengers on our KLM 1070 flight from Manchester to Amsterdam. The captain and cabin crew put an end to a brawl between two groups of passengers. All involved were arrested upon arrival at Schiphol Airport.”
