He went to the bathroom during a flight and didn't want to go out. The captain of the machine had to land unscheduled. Why the man locked himself up remains his secret.
[Graz -] Because a passenger no longer wanted to leave the aircraft toilet, a plane with 134 people on board landed at the Graz airport on an unscheduled basis.
According to the police, the 51-year-old had locked himself in the toilet for the entire duration of the flight. The captain of the machine that started in Cyprus and was on its way to Zurich therefore decided to land in Graz on Saturday.
The 51-year-old behaved cooperatively towards the border police officers who had been notified. So he left the toilet and voluntarily showed all his luggage. The police did not find any dangerous objects. No manipulations or damage were discovered on the on-board toilet either.
When questioned, the man did not provide any information about his behavior. He was reportedly traveling on by train. According to the police, the Airbus A320 could start again after 45 minutes. [dpa]
