TERRIFYING eyewitness accounts of a wild brawl onboard a Jetstar flight from Sydney to Phuket have emerged as authorities continue to investigate.
Jetstar said flight JQ27 was diverted to Denpasar after a group of six passengers, travelling together, were being “extremely disruptive” amongst themselves.
The pilot decided to divert the plane after the group refused to calm down and were handed over to Indonesian police.
After a two-hour delay the flight continued without incident to Phuket.
“We take safety and security seriously and we don’t tolerate disruptive behaviour by passengers on our flights,” the airline said in a statement.
“The other customers onboard supported the decision to offload the group in Bali and thanked the crew.”
A social media user posted on the Sunrise Facebook page saying that she has three friends on the flight.
“I’ve been talking to one of them this morning. She said it was really scary. She was in tears and kids etc were screaming,” she wrote.
“Blood was everywhere. It was a massive punch up.”
