In a nasty video that has gone viral, two men heading got into a wild fistfight on a plane from Tokyo to Los Angeles in what can be called as another example of 'plane rage'.

All Nippon Airways (ANA) Flight 6 was waiting to take off from Narita airport on Monday when the fight broke out. An airport police officer said the suspect, an American in his 40s, was being held on suspicion of injuring an ANA employee.


The American has been detained in Tokyo.

The video was shot by Corey Hour, a Phoenix-based videographer. The video shows a man clad in a red floral shirt punching another man and then evading a female flight attendant who attempted to calm him. The rest was was just a big physical volleys of blows.

Corey, said that he was the one who stepped in to stop the fight.

Nobody, not even Corey knows the reason for brawl, "No one provoked him - 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," he told CNN.

The incident came after last month's viral video of of an Asian doctor being dragged from a United Airlines flight at Chicago after he refused to give up his seat to make room for crew members.
