Man locks himself in the toilet – the machine has to land

Because a passenger no longer wanted to leave the aircraft toilet, a plane with 134 people on board landed at the Graz airport unexpectedly. According to the police on Sunday, the 51-year-old had locked himself in the toilet for the entire duration of the flight. The captain of the machine, which started in Cyprus and was on its way to Zurich, therefore decided to land in Graz on Saturday.

The 51-year-old behaved cooperatively with 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.
