A trio of drunken 'lapdancers' had to be pulled apart by cabin crew after they launched into a vodka-fuelled scrap on an easyJet flight to Tenerife.
Frightened passengers watched on as the three boozed-up women attacked each other at 30,000ft, leaving one of them with a bloodied face.
Witnesses told how the friends, believed to be erotic dancers, had been causing issues on the flight from Gatwick after downing a bottle of Grey Goose.
Attendants managed to confiscate the alcohol following complaints by other passengers, causing a row to erupt between the trio.
Angie Dilloway, whose 10-year-old daughter Bella can be heard screaming in footage of the fight, told The Sun how one women was 'ripping the hair out' of another.
'No one expected it to happen,' she said. 'They were friends and cuddling one minute and then getting louder and drinking Grey Goose vodka the next.
'They started arguing and they were swearing using the f word and the c word. Other passengers started to complain and the stewardess took the bottle of vodka away from them.
'Then a brunette lunged at a blonde, screaming. She was ripping her hair out. We feared someone would get badly hurt.'
A spokesperson for easyJet confirmed that an altercation had taken place on the flight and that certain passengers were escorted from the plane by Spanish police.
In a statement, they added: 'easyJet can confirm that flight EZY8709 from London Gatwick to Tenerife South on 13 April was met by police on arrival in Tenerife South due to passengers on board behaving in a disruptive manner.
'The passengers were escorted away by police.'
It comes after a report last week suggested drunken air passengers could be hit with on-the-spot fines at airports in a bid to crackdown on air rage.
Ministers are said to be considering the measure after alcohol was found to be the biggest cause of trouble on flights.
More than one in six people who have flown in the past three years have witnessed aggressive or drunken behaviour on board, according to the Civil Aviation Authority.
A government report has set out a range of proposals to curb excessive drinking before and during flights as part of its Aviation Strategy.
Among the suggestions are selling duty-free booze in sealed bags to reduced the likelihood of passengers drinking it on flights.
Other measures could include introducing tougher penalties for those drunk on flights and overhauling licensing laws for airside premises in England and Wales, which are not covered by the Licensing Act.
