Unruly Passenger on Flight to Bali Arrested

Apr 25, 2014

Indonesian authorities have arrested a passenger who allegedly tried to enter the cockpit during a Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Bali on Friday.

There were earlier fears that the incident was a highjacking attempt, after a representative of the Indonesian Air Force described it as such to a local TV station. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, however, Virgin has denied any such attempt took place.

The passenger was subdued and handcuffed while still on the 737-800 aircraft, and is now in police custody in Bali.
