A Jetstar flight was evacuated after passengers reportedly began arguing over the Middle East conflict.
The plane was taxiing at Sydney Airport before departing for Melbourne when a male passenger began complaining of back pain and asked to change seats.
A passenger on board later said the situation escalated when the conversation turned to the conflict in Israel.
“Because they were talking about the war, it made us all very nervous,” the passenger told 2GB on Tuesday.
“Obviously it is unusual for the crew to allow passengers to leave the plane once you have all boarded.”
