The Boeing 777 plane resembled a 'war zone' with passengers' belongings strewn about and what appeared to be blood was splattered across one seat in the images shared on social media by Kru P’Birth, a member of Thai Airways cabin crew.

The injured passenger is said to have banged his head on the roof of the plane after he was thrown into the air since he was not wearing his seatbelt, Thai news site Khaosod reported.

"All those who were hurt on the aircraft have returned home from hospital," the airline's statement read.
