easyJet flight towards Tenerife South diverts to Faro after on-board brawl

On 3 October, an easyJet Airbus A320neo (G-UZHI) operated flight U21903 between Manchester, United Kingdom and Tenerife South Airport, Spain. The crew, however, was forced to divert to Faro, Portugal after a brawl broke out on board. In total, seven British passengers were escorted off the aircraft.

After the altercation, the flight was able to continue to Tenerife, with a delay of just under three hours. The return flight towards Manchester was delayed until the following afternoon, most likely due to crew duty and rest regulations.

Bart Noëth: Since 1996, I have been working in the Belgian airline industry, from a weekend job as a cabin aircraft cleaner to a flight attendant. After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called www.luchtzak.be, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
