DUBAI: Two passengers got into a brawl shortly after landing on a Southwest Airlines flight from Dallas to California Tuesday.
Southwest flight 2530 was on a short layover at Hollywood Burbank Airport before it continued to Oakland when two men began a fistfight as terrorized passengers screamed.
Mobile phone footage of the incident was uploaded to social media sites and in the videos, a female passenger can be heard saying “what is wrong with you” as others rush to stop the fight.
Some passengers can be seen leaving the cabin in a rush.
