Nothing like a good old fashioned airport brouhaha at 8 in the morning.
We’re not entirely sure what started this 17-person melee at London’s Luton Airport (not Heathrow, the big one), but it’s definitely one for the ages.
We got guys swinging suitcases, we got guys swinging airport furniture, a brutal sucker punch that dropped a guy to the floor, women screaming… and remember, it’s 8 in the morning. Most of these lads haven’t even finished their 8am pre-flight pint yet.
Some of the comments suggest that the woman filming is speaking Polish and mentions that many of the men in this group are Romanian, but nonetheless, others joked that it was actually “well-behaved” for Luton Airport.
According to Sky News, spokesperson the Luton Airport offered the following statement:
“We are shocked and saddened by this isolated incident. We take a zero-tolerance approach to violence and continue to assist the police with their enquiries.
We would like to sincerely apologize to any passengers affected.”
Eleven of the seventeen participants have been charged with violent disorder, five were released and one was released with “conditions.” Four were injured in the brawl, with three being serious enough to warrant a trip to the hospital.
The one dude that got dropped like a sack of potatoes looked like he was in bad shape…
