Seattle Flight Turns Around Because of Naked Passenger

Alaska Airlines flight AS146 from Anchorage to Seattle took off early this morning but turned around and returned to Anchorage because of a naked passenger.

Airport Police and Fire Sgt. Darcey Perry said officers responded at about 3 a.m. to Flight 146, which had taken off but returned to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

“There was a subject on the aircraft that had barricaded or locked himself in the bathroom, the lavatory,” Perry said. “Flight attendants did find that the subject was naked.”

The plane departed at 1:29 a.m. and returned to Anchorage at 3:47 a.m. The airline explained the delay as “due to a passenger not following flight attendants’ instructions.”

Once on the ground FBI agents interviewed crew and some passengers. Here is everyone being deplaned back in Anchorage.

Last month alone a took too many sex drugs and ran through an airport naked. Neither passenger is related to the woman who walked around the Atlanta airport naked posing for photos.

There was supposed to be an entire airline for these people and the naked man in Lufthansa first class. They would presumably be served by the British Airways flight attendants being scolded by the airline for running naked in hotels.

  1. Apparently it wasn’t that he was naked, but that he barricaded himself in the lav. But it looks like another case of “arrest him in Seattle”. What’s the urgency to turn around and inconvenience everybody else?

  2. Safety first. When flying on Alaska Airlines flight 146 between Anchorage and Seattle, please do not lock yourself in the restroom then take off all your clothes. In the unlikely event of an emergency evacuation, you should always wear your shoes to help protect your feet.

  3. Very funny japanse video with subs, which is related to the topic of locking yourself in the bathroom and being naked. This is the same guy that did the very funny Denver Airport TSA skit.
