Two further punches cause the employee to crash back on to the luggage conveyor belt.
He struggles to his feet with blood pouring down the side of his face and again confronts the passenger with his fists aimed to throw a punch.
Others are pleading with them to stop fighting but instead, the passenger says: ‘Oh you want some more?’
He then shouts to the others watching on: ‘He works at the airport and he assaulted me.’
