Flight to Paradise Ends in Mid-Air Stabbing With Broken Wine Bottle
A British Airways flight from the United Kingdom to the Caribbean paradise of St. Lucia turned violent after passengers got into an argument which turned into a stabbing.
Passengers on the plane revealed to the Daily Mail that the unnamed attacker and several drunken men were partying up a storm during the eight-hour, 40-minute flight.
The hoodlums blocked access to bathrooms and harassed women during the party while the airplane staff did nothing to control the situation.
The UK Sun captured the terrifying footage showing the attacker shattering a wine bottle during a nasty argument with another flyer.
He then stabbed the man with the broken bottle as the other passengers looked on in horror. The thug responsible for the stabbing can be seen wearing a bucket hat.
During the brawl, the assailant throws the bottle into the ceiling, and blood can be seen there.

Passengers blamed the flight crew for the mess, claiming they exacerbated the problem by providing the men with alcohol.

Here are the witness’s stories:
The primary aggressor was behaving terribly in the lead-up to the incident, the BA staff were perhaps too intimidated to regain control, but the atmosphere was clearly leading to some kind of incident. A handful of men were lingering at the back of the plane for hours, loudly partying with an endless supply of alcohol provided by the British Airways staff.
Another passenger had this to say:
Flight attendants poured fuel on a fire. They allowed a party atmosphere where people were not able to go to the flight attendants and ask for anything because about ten men were all standing up at the back of the plane, blocking the facilities and drinking heavily.
According to the Sun, the two men were arrested on the tarmac by St Lucia cops and carted away for interrogation.
Saint Lucia police said the incident remains under investigation, and information about criminal charges was not immediately available.
