Two women shriek during mid-air brawl before being dragged off diverted flight

Two women were filmed screaming at each other during a mid-air brawl on a packed Frontier Airlines flight — causing the journey to be diverted.

A video of the shocking incident showed the pair in a frenzied fight as they yelled at each other and threatened other passengers, who attempted to restrain them.

The pair had reportedly been sitting close to one another on the flight between Philadelphia and Las Vegas when the brawl started, 8NewsNow reports.

But the woman, who was dressed in red, moved to another seat to try and put an end to the drama.

However, the irate woman was seen swearing in the aisle of the aircraft while flailing her arms manically.

Another woman, who she appeared to be seated with, became involved in the situation, which led to the two exchanging angry words.

Flight attendants headed over to the scene several times, trying to calm them down.

One flyer is heard saying the attendants had been down "multiple times".

"Just get your s**t together so we can get home," the passenger said.

It echoed the sentiments of other travellers stuck on board with the women, who grew frustrated by their antics and begged the women to "shut up" and "get some class".

At that moment, the woman in red aggressively confronted one of the staff members, shrieking in her face while still waving her arms around.

She then spotted one of her fellow passengers recording the exchange and headed towards them, babbling incoherently as she made her way down the aisle.

Another passenger was seen physically restraining the woman, while the other woman involved in the broil hurled insults back down the plane.

The Las Vegas resident behind the footage was on their way home from a holiday when they said the flight spiralled out of control because of the women's antics.

The woman who recorded the footage, who chose to remain nameless, told local outlet KLAS: "It was fairly disruptive, so passengers began to tell them to shut up because their behaviour was escalating."

Footage captured the moment the women were eventually hauled off the plane after touching down in Denver.

Tensions were still escalated on board, with the woman in red appearing to mock the other woman as she was escorted away.

After she said "get 'em out of here", fellow passengers erupted with loud shushes and cries of "shut the f**k uK".

According to the woman behind the video, several other passengers also left the plane briefly in order to give witness statements to police, who then passed them onto the FBI.

The flight was able to continue its journey, landing around an hour after its intended arrival.

It is unclear whether the women have faced charges for their actions. Frontier Airlines have been contacted for a comment.
