Fed-up passengers had to deal with nearly a four-hour delay to their holiday after a man "urinated on his brother" and had to be dragged off a plane by cops.
Alfie and Kenneth Springthorpe, from Sidcup, south-east London, were slapped with a £50,000 fine by Jet2 after a "full fist fight" erupted on the aircraft on May 3.
The pilot was forced to divert the London Stansted flight to Corfu after a mum was reportedly hit during the drunken brawl which is said to have happened mid-flight.
New released footage shows the aftermath of the fight, with one of the brothers arched over while being hauled off the aircraft by Greek police officers.
A plain-clothed officer was seen escorting the troubled passenger from behind to help the other cop remove him from the scene, reports The Sun.
The dramatic flight, which was reportedly caused by the brother downing 1.5 litres of Ciroc Vodka, received over 60,000 views on a separate TikTok video at the time.
The incident saw more than 200 passengers have their holiday delayed, with many left stranded in Crete for an additional day. The airline provided them with hotels.
In response to the incident, Jet2 issued a statement on their website last month and said: “Jet2.com has issued a bill for more than £50,000 to a pair of disruptive brothers, alongside a lifetime ban, after their aggressive and violent behaviour led to a flight having to be diverted last week.

“Alfie and Kenneth Springthorpe, from Sidcup, displayed a catalogue of appalling behaviour onboard the aircraft which included causing damage as well as unacceptable levels of aggression and even physical violence.
“As a result, the highly trained crew were left with no choice other than to divert the aircraft, which was flying from London Stansted to Heraklion (Crete), to Corfu so that police could offload them.
“This led to a delay of approximately three hours and 45 minutes before the flight continued safely to Crete."
A passenger said she overheard that the younger brother was given a first warning before take off when he made an inappropriate comment about her lips.
“Once in the air it was clear the younger brother was drunk and the stewardess took an empty 1 litre bottle of Ciroc Vodka from them," said the passenger.
“About two and a half hours into the flight I was waiting to go to the toilet and the older brother stood up but was so drunk he couldn’t stand, he needed the loo but in his drunken state peed over the younger brother who then hit him resulting in a full fist fight."
They added: “The younger brother and mum left the flight and the older brother was handcuffed and dragged from the plane as he refused to leave and could not stand.
“The younger brother just kept saying ‘he p****d on me what I was supposed to do’ and was quite upset and apologetic.
“Once they were off the flight a second bottle of Ciroc was found half empty.”
