Brawl Breaks Out On Southwest Airlines Flight In Dallas
This brawl aboard a Southwest Airlines flight in Dallas took place on Monday, March 6th, 2023. But the video and story behind it are just starting to go viral now. With many of the passengers sharing their side of what happened on the plane.
According to The Independent, the flight was leaving from Dallas, and heading to Phoenix, Arizona. The fight started when one of the passengers "approached the other aggressively", at least that's what one of those involved said.
One of the witnesses, in fact the woman who shot one of the viral videos of the fight, told Fox News what she saw. Here's what Fox News said:
"The woman who recorded the video told Fox News Digital that the tattooed man 'bumped into his wife by accident, and he started mouthing off.'She also said that the man in the sports jacket punched the other man "four to five times" before she began recording."
All of the reports on the incident say the two men were removed from the flight, and the Dallas Police Department got involved. However, according to both The Independent and Fox News, no arrests were made in the case.
In fact, these reports also say the flight was able to take off from Dallas, and arrive in Phoenix on time. Which is actually pretty amazing, considering the issues that US flight have had over the last 18 months with staying on schedule and arriving on time.
The Independent did get a statement from Southwest Airlines on the matter. A spokesperson told them:
"We commend our crew for managing the situation as safety professionals while also ensuring the comfort of the other passengers in the cabin"
This incident took place hours after another Southwest Airlines issue. On Sunday a flight going from Cuba to Florida had to be evacuated due to smoke in the cabin.
