Swiss flight cancelled after on board fight

Swiss flight cancelled after on board fight

Swiss International Air Lines aborted a flight from Geneva to Algiers after six passengers got into a fight about their seating.

The fully boarded flight had 110 passengers and was ready to set off at around 6pm when the brawl broke out, (says 20 minutes) and they ignored the crew's instructions.

The plane had to turn round and return to the stand where police handcuffed some of the passengers.

The plane was too late to fly to Algiers so the passengers missed their flight and had to be put up in a hotel overnight.

The public prosecutor will now decide on the fate of those involved in the brawl.
