28 February: Port Hedland, Australia

Six FIFO workers are alleged to have threatened airline workers and refused to wear facemasks at the Port Hedland airport in Australia prior to boarding a flight. Witnesses reported the men were drunk and belligerent. They were refused alcohol service as a result. Things went downhill from there. Police told three of the men to leave the premises, but two more were initially allowed to board the plane. Shortly before take-off however, they were removed from the aircraft when a brawl ensued.
