Couple arrested for mile-high romp

WHAT was a couple doing in the toilet on board a Mackay-bound Jetstar flight on Saturday morning?

Well, nobody is entirely sure but the man inside the lavatory allegedly became aggressive towards cabin staff when they tried to find out.

The incident prompted Jetstar security to request police assistance at 8.30am, about half an hour before the plane was scheduled to land in Mackay.

Police went to Mackay Airport and when the plane, which had flown Brisbane, landed they went on board and arrested the Gold Coast couple.

Officers escorted the man and woman, without incident, from the plane before the other passengers on board disembarked.

A police spokesman said what the couple was doing in the toilet was a mystery.

What is known is that the couple's time in the aircraft lavatory caused problems for other travellers.

"Flights from Mackay Airport were delayed 30 minutes," the police spokesman said.

Police later charged a 44-year-old Gold Coast man with being disorderly on an aircraft.

A 39-year-old woman was released without charge, police said.
