Two men, believed to be in their 30s and from Bermondsey, south London, had been acting aggressive on the flight and bragging about how much they had drunk, the Daily Star reported.

And the situation boiled over when they told one of the passengers that they were going to escort him off the flight.

After the pilot tried to calm the man down, he and his friends attacked him.

A dramatic video shows the moment two thugs attack the pilot while other passengers, including children, scream in fear.

Another passenger, a 37-year-old woman, recounted how punches were thrown.

“It was complete and utter chaos,” he told The Sun. “It started and he was just throwing punches while a bunch of guys were trying to hold him back.”

“The pilot got out and the guy hit him. He seemed fine, but was understandably quite upset. He was embarrassing.”

As we mentioned in AmericanPost.Newsanother witness claimed that the men had abused everyone on board and had bragged about drinking from 10am before starting smoking on the flight.

A Wizz Air spokesperson reportedly said: “On Wizz Air flight W95741 from Gatwick – Chania, a passenger went rogue.

“The cabin crew handled the situation as they are trained to do and reported the incident to the respective authorities, who arrested the passenger upon arrival,” it added.

“Wizz Air confirms that the crew were asked to go to the airport police station to present the case, by which time the crew had legally reached their duty time limit and needed time to rest before the flight back to Gatwick,” he said.

Unfortunately, this meant that Chania – Gatwick flight W95742 had to be rescheduled. The flight departed at 16:10 local time.

“Wizz Air sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience caused, but the safety of passengers and crew is the number one priority of the airline,” the spokesperson concluded.
