A flight was delayed for six hours after its pilot and a cabin crew member got into a fight just before the aircraft was due to take off.

The Saudi Arabian Airlines' plane was evacuated and more than 150 passengers were taken to a transit hall in Cairo International airport while officials separated the captain and steward after an argument turned violent.

The flight was grounded for six hours before the passengers were put back on the plane bound for Saudi Arabia.

The steward was treated at the airport for hand injuries and the pilot suffered an eye injury and was transported to hospital, reports the Daily Mail.

"The fight took place as the plane was about to take off," said Col Mutaz Youssef, duty head of the airport police.
