Two passengers arrested at Heathrow after flight brawl with cabin crew over seats

MID-AIR DRAMA

TWO passengers have been arrested at Heathrow Airport after a "brawl" with cabin crew members over seats.

The travellers allegedly flew into a rage after refusing to pay for bulkhead seats on the Pakistan International Airline flight from Lahore.

They clashed with cabin crew after the pair were told they could only use the seats if they coughed up first, the airline has claimed.

Bulkhead seats are the row immediately behind the wall that often separates the different class lounges on a flight.

PIA tweeted this morning: “Two passengers unwilling to pay for bulkhead seats onboard PIA Flight PK757 from Lahore to London were involved in a heated argument and brawl with our crew creating distress during the flight.

“The passengers were informed that as per policy bulkhead seats can only be availed after additional payment but they refused and occupied the seats forcefully.”

The spokesperson said the pair were told to calm down but refused and the police arrested them.

They added: “PIA crew exercised complete restraint with the passengers despite their aggressive behaviour and assault.

“The passengers were issued a warning before being reported, but they did not relent. They were investigated by the London Police and consequently arrested.”
