Officials received a call from the pilot of one Virgin Australia plane. The pilot reportedly informed officials that a passenger had tried to enter the cockpit.
TV news also claimed that the plane landed at Bali, Indonesia safely. Police sources were quoted as saying that passenger who attempted to hijack the plane, has been arrested.
Virgin officials, meanwhile, overruled reports of hijack. They informed that a drunk passenger tried to break into the cockpit. Hence, the pilot was forced to land the plane at Bali.
A Virgin Australia official was quoted as saying, "This is no hijacking, this is a miscommunication. What happened was there was a drunk person... too much alcohol consumption caused him to act aggressively."
Meanwhile, a passenger of another flight at Bali airport said, "The captain of my plane made an announcement saying we were delayed indefinitely because a hijack was going on in Bali airport, about 150 metres away from us."
"I saw at least five vehicles including military-style trucks, filled with men in uniform, rushing towards the plane," he added.
