A British woman in her 20s was arrested after losing her temper with cabin crew who caught her locked in an aeroplane toilet with a man she had just met onboard.
The apparently drunk tourist is said to have been handcuffed to a chair by flight attendants – to the horror of her parents, who were travelling with her.
She was on an 11-hour Virgin Atlantic flight from Gatwick to Las Vegas last week when she reportedly struck up a friendship with the man sitting in the next seat.
They disappeared to the aircraft toilet and other travellers soon complained of hearing noises from inside.
Another passenger told The Sun: ‘She started getting heated with the guy next to her.
‘They went into the bathroom and people could hear loud noises. The cabin crew forced to door open, then she really kicked off.’
The paper reported the incident happened on a flight from London Gatwick to Las Vegas in the US last week.
The woman was questioned by police but released with a warning before continuing her holiday in the notorious Nevada resort.
It comes just week after an Australian was arrested for apparently mistaking the cockpit door of a Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Bali for the toilet, triggering a hijack scare.
Last year, Virgin America launched a new service that allows passengers to send drinks, a meal or treats to fellow passengers in a move which many said encouraged mid-air flirting.
Virgin Atlantic has however said they do no accept bad behaviour by any passengers on board their planes.
