The passengers watched in silence as two passengers stood up and broke into a heated argument mid-air. The name calling soon escalated as the flight crew's efforts to broker peace failed.

A video - apparently of fight on board Tuesday's Thai Airways Bangkok-India flight - has gone viral. The video that has been widely shared on social media, including Twitter, shows two male passengers in a heated argument that eventually turns into a scuffle and fisticuffs, while the flight attendant looks on helplessly.

In the video, others passengers watched in silence as the two stood up and broke into a heated argument mid-air. The name-calling escalated soon after the flight crew's efforts to broker peace failed.

"Haath neeche rakh (put your hand down)", yelled one of the passenger as he slapped the other, triggering the full-blown fight.

Some passengers were seen rushing to separate the two.

The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, which is attached to the civil aviation ministry, has said it is aware of the incident and is investigating.

"We've taken cognizance of the viral video which is showing a fight between passengers on a Thai Airways flight to Kolkata…. have sought a detailed report from the concerned authority," Zulfiquar Hasan, BCAS' director-general, said.

"Further action will be taken," he added.

In a similar incident earlier this month, a video surfaced of an IndiGo flight from Istanbul to Delhi where a heated argument ensued between a flight attendant and a passenger over food choice.

According to media reports, IndiGo replied to the incident and said that their crew lead on the flight had to intervene as the passenger in question had shown 'bad behaviour' and 'insulted' one of the airline's flight attendants.
