This week in air travel news, two men erupted in a heated brawl prior to takeoff on a flight from Japan to Los Angeles, and of course, it was all captured on video. That's one way to kick off a trans-continental flight.

An article published in Daily Mail shows a video of two men throwing punches at each other as a flight attendant desperately tries to pull them apart. According to the article, the incident took place on a Japanese AMA flight that was scheduled to fly from Narita International Airport to Los Angeles on Monday night.

The video shows two men, both apparently American, initially throwing punches from their seats prior to the flight's takeoff. According to the article, the instigator, who was wearing a bright red Hawaiian shirt, was walking away down the aisle after their first altercation when the second man shouted, "Get this guy off this plane." The other man then charged back down the aisle and started throwing more punches.

To add to the ambiance, there is a baby crying in the background.

According to the article, the man wearing the Hawaiian shirt was identified as a 44-year-old American and was charged with assault after the altercation. Japanese police said the man was drunk, which was largely attributed to his "unruly manner."

Call us crazy, but it seems like air travel horror stories are becoming more frequent than on-time departures these days. Just last month, a man was dragged off a United flight for refusing to give up his seat on an overbooked flight. But don't lose total faith in humanity. Here's an air travel story that will warm your heart. And while traveling can be extremely stressful, these hotel chains try to make it a little easier for you to get some endorphins, which we can all use after a long day (or two) of traveling.
