Video captures fistfight between passengers on flight to Los Angeles

Two passengers caught on video fighting on a plane

According to Singleton, the man was deemed a safety threat and was arrested after being removed from the flight.

A passenger aboard a plane set to depart a Tokyo airport for Los Angeles captured video of an all-out brawl between two men.

CNN Money reports American Airlines plans to decrease the space between seats by one to two inches for economy class on some new planes they'll use next year.

One of the men can also be heard saying, "F*** you". "What about the government?!"

In the video, a man with a red shirt is seen fighting with a guy wearing a black t-shirt.

"We had to stop it", Hour told KCBS.

The All Nippon Airways plane was headed from Japan to LAX Monday evening.

The passenger in the black t-shirt shirt punched the man, and the female flight attendant appeared to get hit while she attempted intervene a second time. The man was removed from the plane and, according to a statement released by All Nippon Airways, now in custody.

In the video, the man in black yells, "Someone help, this guy is insane!" to which the man in red says something indiscernible before threatening to kill him.

Attendants on ANA Flight NH6 at Tokyo's Narita International Airport were more like boxing referees when fists started flying before takeoff. The flight was already delayed due to bad weather and the altercation further delayed the flight.

Airline employees immediately came to break up the commotion. "You are insane, you need to leave this flight", Hour said. ANA apologized to passengers in a statement, informing them that the troubled passenger was detained.
