A United Airlines worker has been filmed trading blows with an unruly passenger at Newark Airport in a shocking brawl that left the airline worker covered in blood. 

The video emerged on social media on Sunday morning after horrified onlookers watched as the pair sparred in front of the bag drop desk. 

The fight began when the passenger used a wheelchair to transport his luggage – seemingly in a bid to avoid paying the fee on luggage carts inside the New Jersey airport.

When the United worker challenged him over it, the pair started fighting.

The United worker managed to land one punch but was then pummeled to the ground, flying behind the check-in desk and onto the carousel. 

He staggered back up to his feet, stumbling towards the passenger who yelled incredulously: ‘He wants more? He wants more!’ 

Other airline workers intervened and the passenger was then removed from the airport by police. 

United would not state whether the airline worker has been disciplined for his role in the fight. 

In a statement, a spokesman said only: ‘United Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind at our airports or on board our planes and we are working with local authorities to further investigate this matter.’ 

Footage being shared does not show the start of the altercation but it does show the employee striking the passenger in the face

Port Authority Police, who handle incidents in the airport, have not commented on the incident or if either man was charged. 

The video has been viewed more than 11million times since being uploaded to Twitter yesterday morning. 

Now, the internet is divided on which of the pair was to blame – and who threw the first punch.

The viral edit of the video shows the United worker punching first. A second, slightly longer video however has the passenger slapping the airline worker first. 

An even longer video shows the pair sparring, but there is no footage of the start of the altercation.
