    Virgin flight Brisbane to Bali hijacked.

    What is the world come to??????

    I hope the authorities can safely free all pax on board and that the hijackers get what they deserve.

    Articles on Australian Breaking News Headlines & World News Online | SMH.com.au and news.com.au confirm the hijacking.

    From News.com.au | News Online from Australia and the World | NewsComAu

    A VIRGIN passenger plane has been hijacked on the way to Bali from Brisbane, according to media reports.
    The reports have come from Reuters reports, citing Indonesia’s Metro TV.
    The plane was forced to land in Bali.

    Should have had the bartender from the PER Lounge onboard to keep things in check.

    From BNE + to Bali + Virgin + 6 hour flight............sums it up.

    Really, idiots like this one is why alcohol won't be served on board flights someday. There seem to be more of these idiots and the problems they caused can't be ignored.

    Should have stayed home. Passport should be stamped "Never allowed to leave the country again!".

    Too harsh? Moron does not deserve any better.
