A pair of attendants on a Royal Air Maroc flight last Tuesday were reportedly involved in a heated dispute that resulted in a meal cart being tipped over, spilling its contents all over the plane.

In a report from Brittany Jones Cooper of, passengers on the Royal Air Maroc flight from Mohamed V International Airport in Morocco to Portela International airport in Lisbon posted on the French-language forum Crash Aerien about the incident.

Customers aboard the flight reported hearing a loud bang toward the back of the plane. Upon turning around to identify the cause of the noise, several passengers wrote on the forum that they saw two flight attendants in an argument, which could have caused the cart to fall over.

Yahoo Travel’s official Twitter account shared an image of the incident aftermath:

While the passengers posting on the Crash Aerien forum are reporting of an argument between two crew members, the airline denies a physical altercation took place. Royal Air Maroc did admit, however, that there was an argument between employees due to a human error.

Rather than causing the spill, the airline contends that the argumen was because of the spill.

A Royal Air Maroc spokesperson released a statement, saying, “One of the air stewards had forgotten to lock the service trolley away after placing it in the back of the cabin. With the time pressure and all the services they must provide, oversights are possible.”

We may never know what actually happened on board this flight, but one thing is certain: the cleaning crew almost certainly had a bone to pick afterward with someone.
