Passenger holding baby punched by airport worker

EasyJet Flight EZY2122 was scheduled to depart from Nice for a journey to Luton Airport in London, but had been delayed for 12 hours, causing numerous passengers to become verbally frustrated by the situation.

"It was completely unprovoked", said Mrs Arkwright, 49, who was returning from holiday with her husband, Johnnie, 64, their son Harry, 16, and daughter Violet, 13. The video then shows the man holding the baby move toward the gate agent to take a picture of him with this phone.

Not so "Nice"? An airport employee in Nice, France, has been suspended after allegedly punching a passenger who was holding a baby. Unable to answer the passengers questions, the employee suddenly lashed out with a punch.

According to The Guardian, the passenger was upset over the lack of baby food and seats on the flight.

An easyJet spokesman said the person in the photograph was not an employee of the budget carrier.

EasyJet says that he works for Samsic, a special assistance provider used by the Nice airport.

Officials with easyJet said the airline worker who hit the man with the baby was not an airline employee.

The unprecedented situation occurred exactly when the passengers were going through the security checks, before boarding their flight to Luton. They saw that the victim had bruises on his face from the punch. Some reports said the flight was delayed more than 14 hours.

"Clearly it is a misconduct situation".

The worker was not affiliated with European EasyJet airline and worked for Samsic, a subcontractor for the airport, CNN reported. "EasyJet sincerely apologises for the delay and thanks passengers for their patience".

"Passengers were provided with updates and refreshment vouchers during this time and the flight landed in London Luton [Airport] last night".

She wrote that information on their planned flight became murky at their airport as staffers provided passengers with contradictory information. Ever since United Airlines dragged an Asian doctor off its plane as it was "overbooked", scores of incidents drawing attention to ill treatment and mismanagement has come to the forefront.

The airline also apologized for the delay, which was caused by a technical problem.

Easyjet said on its Twitter account that the company was "concerned" about the incident.
