Three passengers – including one who checked in half naked – have been kicked off a Jetstar flight from Bali after causing mayhem within minutes of takeoff.
The two men and a woman were escorted off the plane at Brisbane Airport by Australian Federal Police after the flight crew had to intervene when one of the men got into an argument with passengers behind him.
According to others on the plane, the heavily tattooed man turned violent towards the pair 90 minutes after takeoff before half a dozen others split up and the pilot threatened to crash land if the disturbances continued.
Passengers can be heard cheering in a video of the trio being led off the plane by AFP agents, with one traveler yelling, “Don’t come back either.”
The woman in the group raises her middle finger in response and snaps, “F*** you!”

The airline said while the investigation continued, two male passengers were temporarily banned from flying with them and Qantas.
“This kind of violent and disruptive behavior is completely unacceptable and will never be tolerated on our flights,” it said.

“The well-being of our passengers and crew is always our number one priority.”
