A male passenger slapped a female flight attendant around the face after she appeared to hit him while he was screaming and spitting in her face.
A two-minute video, posted online, begins with the furious passenger aboard the Brussels Airline flight yelling at a male flight attendant who is trying to restrain him.
The passenger then threatened to ‘beat the s**t out of’ the flight attendant while his wife began yelling that the steward had hit the passenger first.
According to unconfirmed reports online, the altercation was triggered when the passenger wanted to report that his mother was being assaulted by the person seated next to her.
The passenger’s wife then started recording after she said the male flight attendant punched her husband.
In the midst of the chaos, the flight attendant’s supervisor, a woman wearing a red uniform, appeared to try and calm the situation but was told to ‘shut the f*** up!’ by the passenger.
She responds, saying: ‘You listen, and you calm down.’
The wife is then heard saying: ‘All he had to do was help.’
When the female supervisor then threatened to call the police, the wife and husband claimed that it was the flight attendant who escalated the situation by touching him.
The man began yelling louder while inching closer to the supervisor’s face.
At one point the supervisor pauses to wipe away spit from the passenger off her cheek. The supervisor then hit the husband in the face.
The man responded by striking her hard in the face.
