There’s something about airplane lavatories that causes passengers to go a little crazy.

So it really shouldn’t be surprising that a passenger injured himself in the lavatory on KLM flight KL897 on Sunday.
That same passenger also attacked a co-pilot in the aircraft’s galley. Passenger and crew then subdued the individual. The plane continued its journey to Beijing uninterrupted, where a contingent of police officers met the aircraft.
“On Sunday, January 3, on board flight KL897 en route for Beijing, a confused passenger locked himself in the toilets and inflicted slight wounds on himself,” the airline said in a statement sent to AFP.
“He then slightly wounded the co-pilot in one of the kitchens in the cabin,”
An airplane lavatory is sort of like a full moon. It brings out the crazy.
