The 2021 holiday season has caused more than just run-of-the-mill traffic headaches as tens of thousands of travellers have been stranded due to staffing shortages and the spread of Omicron. Even those whose flights are successful have had their share of hiccups.
Newly-surfaced video footage captures the shocking moment in which two US travellers recently exchanged multiple punches shortly after their Delta flight touched down.
The late night flight from Los Angeles, California, to Memphis, Tennessee, reportedly got off the ground without an issue, but the landing proved another story. Exclusive footage obtained by the outlet TMZ showed two individuals throwing several blows and wrestling one another as other travellers readied to disembark.
An eyewitness told the outlet that the scuffle was initiated after a man in a light brown jacket told a man in blue that he was a "horrible person". The pair had exchanged some words moments prior.
The video shows that the not-so-dynamic-duo were pulled apart after level-headed travellers intervened and called off the match.
It was reported by TMZ that the two men maintained their distance, even after arriving at the baggage claim. Police were reportedly not called to respond to the scene.
