Virgin Australia says the incident was not a hijacking attempt as previously feared+ READ ARTICLE
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.
