More than the news about this passenger running on the aisle of Flight VA696, the state of his allegedly being unclothed is grabbing everyone’s attention. People are quite shocked to hear about an adult man pushing away a cabin crew member on the floor and running inside the Virgin Australia domestic flight naked. The surprising incident occurred on Monday night, according to a report by Hindustan Times.

According to the announced schedule, the flight was travelling to Melbourne on the east coast from Perth on the west coast. Unfortunately, the scheduled flight could not complete its journey of 3 and a half hours from Perth to Melbourne. Seeing the man behaving improperly, the decision to cancel the journey within some time of taking off came to action. The pilots soon returned to the Perth airport.

Virgin Australia released an official statement calling the man a disruptive passenger. He was offloaded from the flight later. A team of Australian Federal Police officers was there for the flight to land, the airline added further in the official statement. As of now, there are no updates on why the man ran naked and where he took off his clothing pieces.
