Holidaymakers on board a Ryanair flight watched in horror as a passenger "went berserk" and tried to open one of the doors mid-flight, it has been reported.
He had to be tied to his seat by an off-duty security guard who was on his first ever plane journey, it is claimed by local reports.
The man allegedly had to be restrained after the altercation broke out on a Ryanair flight travelling the route between Seville in Spain and Budapest in his home country.
According to the Spanish press, the man became very aggressive mid-way through the flight with witnesses claiming he started to kick seats, threatened other passengers with a pen and shouted at a number of women sitting near him.
A security guard who was travelling on the same flight with his partner offered to help the flight attendants which at first was declined, La Razon reports.
However, a few minutes later, he was asked to intervene as the man was threatening to open a door mid-flight.
The security guard managed to control the irate passenger, who was wrestled to the ground before being secured on a seat with the safety belts.
The pilot of the Ryanair flight at one stage had to leave the cabin to help deal with the commotion which was said to have caused panic on board, it is reported.
Police were waiting at Budapest-Ferenc Liszt airport where the man was arrested, it was reported.
The security guard who helped to contain the passenger said it had been his first-ever flight.
The incident happened on November 11 but full details have only just emerged, together with a video posted on YouTube.
It shows a number of passengers wearing masks standing in the aisle as the commotion goes on around them. Shouting can be heard, together with a flight attendant calling for calm.
Ryanair has been asked to comment.
