A young passenger was removed from a Jetstar flight to Bali by police after he was caught vaping in the plane’s toilet.
The man had set off the plane’s smoke detector just before the flight from Sydney to the Indonesian holiday destination took off on October 4.
Images of the passenger being taken from the plane by AFP agents have since circulated online and show the man in the green shirt carrying his suitcase down the aisle.
“Don’t vape on planes, guys,” the video’s caption reads.
A traveler was forcibly removed from a Jetstar flight to Bali after he was caught vaping in the plane’s toilet.
Jetstar confirmed the passenger had been removed from the plane.
“Customers cannot vape on a plane, it’s that simple,” an airline spokesperson said.
“The use of any type of electronic cigarette on board aircraft is strictly prohibited.
“The vapors triggered the plane’s smoke alarms before departure and our crew called the AFP to help evacuate the passenger.” Safety is our top priority and this type of behavior will never be tolerated by our crew.
Some commenters on the video revealed that they had vaped on board flights and got away with it without issue.
“It seems like he’s just inexperienced, I’ve never had a problem,” one said.
“I’ve done it so many times,” said another.
Others said it was “sad” that people weren’t able to go that long without vaping.
“The lack of self-control is unbelievable,” one said.
