Passengers were boarding, settling in for an 11 hour flight from Tokyo to LAX when one passenger began fighting with a man seated behind him, seemingly for no reason whatsoever. Passenger Corey Hour videotaped the incident, commenting on the excellent behaviour of the All Nippon Airways crew in trying to defuse the situation.
The seemingly random encounter seemed to end when the man in the red shirt started walking away, but then returned and started attacking the other man again. Corey Hour himself then stepped in and the man backed down. He was escorted off the plane by airline staff. The passenger was detained and was not allowed to fly. The flight had been delayed for 90 minutes due to the punch up. To date there has been no clarification on the cause of the incident/
