Bride-to-be in mid-air brawl on Ryanair flight to hen do in Barcelona

Updated: 



A bride-to-be got involved in a mass brawl on her hen do at 30,000ft during a Ryanair flight.

The girls flew out from Manchester and were heading for a hen party in Barcelona when a fight broke out mid-air.

Two members of the hen party started fighting and, seconds later, the 'bride', called Kelly, waded in and started throwing punches - whilst wearing her white veil.

Cabin crew rushed in to break up the fight, and separated the group, who continued to swear at each other.

Eyewitness Tony Tickle, from Greater Manchester, managed to capture the scene on camera.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: "All of a sudden I heard it all kicking off.

"I could see shouting and it looked like two girls were fighting. Then I saw the bride run along and jump in.

"She threw three or four punches. I grabbed my phone to get it on camera.

"It all happened so fast. It lasted about a minute in all.

"The flight attendants rushed in and separated them and got the main protagonist out of there."

Mr Tickle, 58, who was travelling to Barcelona for a convention, told the Manchester Evening News: "They were really going at it and if that had been a stag do then we would have had a major incident and the flight would have been put on emergency and turned around.

"Thankfully the crew were all male and got it under control quickly.

"It happened with about 40 minutes left of the flight and the one of the girls was led away and an attendant sat with her. I am not sure if the police were involved when we landed.

"The stewards did a great job though."

It is not known whether the police got involved after the flight landed in Barcelona.

Mr Tickle added that it appeared the girls had been drinking.

A Ryanair spokesman told the Daily Mail: "We have already seen this video, which shows that the matter was dealt with quickly and professionally by our cabin crew. We have nothing further to add."
