In a mass brawl, two thugs who’smoked and drank’ on a WizzAir flight to Crete punched the pilot.

On Tuesday evening (May 10) a Wizz Air flight descended into chaos after a group of rowdy and aggressive British passengers began assaulting the pilot.

The shocking incident occurred shortly after the plane landed in Crete, Greece, after arriving from London Gatwick.

After being told that he would be escorted to the airport by police due to his bad behavior on the flight, the violent passenger reportedly became enraged.

After the pilot tried to calm the man down, he and his friends attacked him, resulting in a hit on the pilot.

According to the Sun, the troublemakers are in their 30s and hail from Bermondsey in South London.
