A married couple’s furious row abroad a British Airways flight forced cabin crew to separate the pair and call armed police to met them at Heathrow.
The British husband and wife, who are in their early 30s, had a screaming match at 30,000ft during the flight from Los Angeles to Heathrow Airport yesterday morning.
Air stewards separated the warring couple, who were returning from a holiday in the States, in different parts of the lower deck of the Airbus A380.
Eyewitnesses claim the woman had bruising around her face and neck and both were kept separate until armed police met them as they touched down.

After all other passengers were allowed to leave Flight BA282 – which landed at Terminal 5 – the officers warned the couple about their future conduct.
An airline source told The Sun: ‘The couple were returning from holiday and were tanked up.
‘They began screaming at each other and things very quickly got out of hand. It was a blazing row.
‘It was terrifying for all other passengers and crew to endure this obscene behaviour. They were very sheepish on arrival in the UK.’
British Airways told MailOnline: ‘The welfare of our customers and crew is always our priority.
‘Police were called to meet the aircraft following a dispute between two customers.’
A Metropolitan Police spokesman added: ‘Police were called at 07.43pm to Terminal Five, Heathrow airport following a report of a disturbance during a flight.
‘Officers met the British Airways flight which had come from Los Angeles and landed at 10.10am. Two passengers were spoken to by officers. No arrests were made.’
