A Saturday Ryanair flight (natch) from Glasgow to Tenerife in the Canary Islands saw a fight break out after a woman went to the lavatory without shoes on.
A “very drunk man pulled her up about it, saying that someone would stand on her toes” according to another passenger. Then the woman’s boyfriend got involved. And more alcohol got involved.
Once on the ground the two men “started arguing, both being very drunk they started to fight, and the man in the video with lots of blood was trying to get the man to calm down and he got hit on the nose.”

Passengers looked on, shouting to stop. A flight attendant tried to intervene. Eventually police took the men into custody.
Apparently there was still blood splattered on an overhead bin when the aircraft left for its next flight.
One of the most basic tips from this blog is to always wear shoes in the lavatory. Always wear them, too, going through airport security. In fact you really don’t want your feet to touch much that’s involved in air travel. I never thought failure to follow this advice would instigate a fight, however.
