Some passengers are nervous to fly, others might just be a little nuts. Here’s a crazy story from an Alaska Air flight that was diverted on Wednesday due to a naked passenger who locked himself in the lavatory.
Naked Passenger Causes Flight To Turn Back
According to KTVA.com the flight was from Anchorage to Seattle, “Flight 146 arrived at Anchorage International around 2:45 a.m. and was met by law enforcement officers at the gate. The passenger was escorted off the flight by officers.”
An Alaska Airlines flight from Anchorage to Seattle was diverted back to Anchorage early Wednesday due to a naked passenger on board the jet, airport police said.
Airport Police and Fire Sgt. Darcey Perry said officers responded at about 3 a.m. to Flight 146, which had taken off but returned to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
“There was a subject on the aircraft that had barricaded or locked himself in the bathroom, the lavatory,” Perry said. “Flight attendants did find that the subject was naked.”
It is not clear what the deal was with this passenger and why he was naked. But, how frustrating this would be for the rest of the passengers on the plane. That is a long flight made so much longer and at 3am no less! Ugh!
