passengers fight british airways flight lagos london

According to an eyewitness report, two passengers on the London-Lagos route of the British Airways took on each other in an intense physical altercation that landed a cabin member in the hospital earlier this week.

The fight which happened in Lagos on Tuesday the 21st of August 2018 caused one hour delay as the disruptive passengers were disembarked to guarantee flight safety.

The BA flight reportedly took off the moment the feuding passengers were kicked out of the plane.

The witness said an argument over sitting location caused the intense fight.

  1. This same thing nearly happened to me on one of my trips to Nigeria. This was in 2006. A Nigerian occupied my seat and when I told him that window seat is for me he told me to find another seat that he wants to seat there. It was when I called one of the flight attendants that the idiot moved to his seat. It was trending online about two months ago two Nigerian passengers were exchanging blows on British Airways from London to Nigeria and one was telling the other “Do you know who I am”? shameless bastards. This is the reason I and I believe a lot of Nigerians break their trip when going to Nigeria instead of flying direct. Have a peaceful flight to any country in Europe or another African country and then endure the remaining 6 or 7 hours on a connecting flight to Nigeria. Very rude and noisy. Now that they want to start Air Nigeria get ready to hear of fights on the plane unless they press will not be informed to avoid embarrassment. Animals in the bush behave better than some people.

  2. Perhaps l skipped reading something in this report? Is it stated there the nationality of the fighting passengers or is it just presumed that only Nigerians board flights from Lagos to other countries?

    We should please try to give benefit of doubt to ourselves since other people castigate us at every twist and turn. Remember that the saying of the wise is true that if one describes his house as “ruins” the enemy will not hesitate to set that house ablaze.

    • @ Big Aunty Koks your reasoning is quite correct but I bet you they are Nigerians. My own personal experience was a fellow Nigerian. The disgrace exhibited in London about 2 months ago were Nigerians and one of them asking the other “do you know who I am”? If you lunch your own investigation you will be surprised (not surprised) to know that those who engaged themselves in show of shame in Lagos are Nigerians and it must be over a seat. Travelers are assigned seats when booking but to some arrogant, uninformed animals in human cloak do not respect that. It is shameful.

  3. I understand some people prefer designated seat. If you want to sit next close to the window, you can request for it while procuring your tickets. Sometimes when you make such request, some Airliners of Agents will tell you it has been sold out. That doesn’t mean you have go and hijack somebody else’s seat.

    Uzoma, if that seat number had not shown on your boarding pass, you may not be vindicated. That is why it is good to do things right.
