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.

And the latest update from The Age
Update: An unruly passenger has forced a Virgin Australia flight to be held on the runway at Bali, and sparked erroneous reports of a hijacking.


Virgin Australia airport manager at Ngurah Rai, Heru Sudjatmiko said a drunk passenger on flight VA41 from Brisbane to Denpasar had tried to get into the cockpit of the plane but was stopped by the crew.
The man was handcuffed and put into a rear seat of the plane.

From Virgin Australia plane held at Bali airport
Update: An unruly passenger has forced a Virgin Australia flight to be held on the runway at Bali, as Indonesian police get involved.
A Virgin Australia spokesman discounted earlier reports of a hijacking, and said there had rather been a drunken passenger or a medical emergency.
"We're still trying to get to the bottom of what happened, but the plane has landed safely at Denpasar," he said.
The head of the Indonesian National Police detective unit said police "already have one perpetrator he’s now being interrogated".

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.
