Fighting Passengers Force Jetstar Diversion

A Jetstar flight from Sydney to Phuket has been forced to land in Indonesia because of a group of rowdy passengers who had to be taken off the plane. 

Flight JQ27 was diverted to Bali on Wednesday night after a group of six passengers travelling together became "extremely disruptive amongst themselves" and refused requests from the crew, a Jetstar spokeswoman says. 

The passengers were handed over to Indonesian police in Bali and the flight then continued onto Phuket. 

"The other customers on board supported the decision to offload the group in Bali and thanked the crew," a statement from Jetstar said on Thursday.

The airline said it takes safety and security seriously and will not tolerate disruptive behaviour by passengers on its flights.
