Fist fight caught on camera on plane goes viral, raises eyebrows

A video showing two men fist fighting on a flight is flooding all the feeds since yesterday.

The "air rage" episode occurred Monday night on All Nippon Airways (ANA) Flight NH6 from suburban Tokyo's Narita International Airport to LAX, according to a report published in the CNN.

The video basically shows two men engaged in massive fistfight where one is physically being heavy on the other. As you can see the man in the black shirt is quite heavily thrashing the older guy in red. Although the guy in red seems more aggressive and angry but he is struggling to have a clear shot at the guy in black. 

As soon as the video shot by another passenger Corey Hour went viral the netizens began to wonder and marvel at the incident. What could be behind this brawl? What is the unresolved mystery?

To get the answer CNN directly interviewed Corey Hour and he said that "No one provoked him (The guy in red) -- he was cool up until a few minutes before he started hitting the guy. He started verbally abusing and intimidating people. Nothing triggered him, it just happened."

So, now we know from Hour that the older guy in red actually started all the chaos.  Hour also told the same to The Washington Post, “He literally just flipped. Nobody knows why.”

Hour said in a tweet the man in the red shirt yelled at him: “You think I’m crazy? What about the government!”

“He was actually predominantly talking about the government and corruption, but he wasn’t specifying which government,” Hour told The Washington Post.

However, the flight crew did a good job while trying to control the situation. Hour too praised the flight crew's response on Twitter: "For the record ANA staff and passengers handled the situation with grace and respect. They did the best they could to diffuse the situation."

After leaving the plane, the unruly passenger reportedly choked a male All Nippon Airways employee, according to Japan Today, and was arrested and charged with assault. He was identified only as a 44-year-old American man, according to The Washington Post.

So, according to all these information we can safely settle that the guy in red was just fed up with the world and started to vent his anger on the fellow humans around him.
