A Jetstar flight heading from Sydney to Phuket had to divert to Denpasar due to a fight that broke out on board. JQ 27 with the registration VH-VKF departed Sydney on runway 16R just after 15.02 (3.02pm local) and diverted to Denpasar landing on runway 06 at 21.05. There it stayed on the ground for two hours and departed again from runway 06 at 23.07. The flight landed safely in Phuket two hours and 4 mins later.
A number of Jetstar passengers onboard a flight from Sydney to Phuket have been interrogated in Bali after a mid-air fight. The 6 passengers that were involved in the brawl on the flight will be returned to Sydney on the next available flight. Reports say the passengers praised and thanked the captains and cabin crew and agreed with the diversion.
