Alaska Airlines 737 taking off from LAX

Of course, Alaska is very cold, but perhaps he was misled about how warm it was further south, where the plane was headed?

"There was a subject on the aircraft that had barricaded or locked himself in the bathroom, the lavatory", airport police Sgt. Darcey Perry told KTVA-TV.

An Alaska Airlines flight bound to Seattle, Washington, on Wednesday was diverted back due to an incident that involved a naked passenger onboard the plane. A flight-status track of its initial trip posted on showed the plane turning back to Anchorage near Prince William Sound. "We appreciate your cooperation".

She said she overheard people report that "he had taken off his clothes and he just wasn't in his right mind".

Once the plane landed back in the Last Frontier State, the Boeing 737 was greeted by airport police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, who quickly removed the man from the plane. Passengers then had to disembark and wait three and a half hours until the next flight. The Boeing 737, which had 178 passengers aboard when it turned around, took off from Anchorage a second time at 6:37 a.m.

Alaska Airlines spokesman Tim Thompson told The Associated Press in an email that the flight turned back to Alaska "due to a passenger not following flight attendant's instructions".

Passengers were in for a surprise when their early morning flight was forced to turn around after a naked passenger refused to come out of the bathroom, reported KTVA.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents responded to the airport and spoke with the naked passenger, Perry said, but it wasn't clear whether he was arrested.

She said that she and most other passengers did not see the man being taken off the flight, because several other men were standing near the bathroom to shield the view.

Chloe Martin, a spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney for Alaska Bryan Schroder, told KTVA that no charges have yet been filed against the unruly passenger. "Flight 146 arrived at Anchorage International around 2:45 a.m. and was met by law enforcement officers at the gate".
