Fight between CC and Cpt in flight

I cannot believe I have just read on AVHERALD.COM that a Cpt and a Flight Attendant had a punch up in the cabin during the flight, this resulted in a broken arm to one and a loss of a tooth to the other. Apparently this happened on or about 6th March 2021 (Donghai Airlines, Flight DZ-6297 from Nantong to Xian). I guess CRM training was somewhat lacking?

Any professionals out there care to comment?

What is there to say really?

This would be as bad if it had happened between two members of staff in Starbucks, the local tax office, or indeed anywhere else. I doubt CRM training had anything to do with it unless this is a particularly endemic problem in Donghai Airlines? More likely a complete loss of self control, rationale and maturity on the part of one or more people. A rare event but I’m sure the appropriate remedies will be applied.

Maybe the Captain found out that the CC had eaten the camembert from the cheeseboard and was trying to reassert their alpha dog status.

I hope the correct cross cockpit gradient was maintained...i.e. the captain won.

That's not unheard of in the part of the world concerned. The division into superiors and subordinates over there takes the sort of scale which would be unimaginable in the Western world. Hence, the superior reserves the right to punch his subordinate every now and again.

Hard to tell, the cabin attendant broke an arm and the captain lost a tooth. I would call that a draw. And the tooth is more expensive to fix, so the cabin guy might have a slight advantage.

During the fight, were the passengers cheering, and if so who were they supporting ? Did they maybe give tips as well to the people in the fight ? Knee him in the ground ! Kick his shins ! Etc....
