Passengers Get Into Fistfight on Southwest Plane After Landing in California

Another flight, another fight.

This one happened aboard a Southwest plane shortly after it landed in Burbank, California. It’s the latest example of rage erupting on board over any number of issues, from canceled flights to seat disputes to apparent misunderstandings. And like other cases, it was all caught on cell phone video.

Southwest flight 2530 had traveled Sunday from Dallas and was on a short layover at Hollywood Burbank Airport before continuing on to Oakland, California.

As the plane taxied to the gate, a fistfight broke out between two men, Burbank police said. The altercation worsened as fellow passengers tried to get off the plane at the gate, the airline said.

Cell phone video that surfaced on social media shows two men apparently jostling for position near a row of seats. Then one man forces the other over the backs of the seats in front of them. He then leans over his fallen foe and unleashes a series of punches before fellow passengers rush in to stop the pummeling.
