Madrid: A German passenger stripped
naked on an Iberia flight from Madrid to Frankfurt, forcing
the pilot to turn the plane around so the man could be
arrested, the Spanish airline said on Friday.
"A German passenger took all his clothes off on the
plane," on Thursday night, an Iberia spokeswoman said.
"Staff on board tried to dissuade him but he became
aggressive and finally locked himself in the toilet. The pilot
then decided to turn around and land in Madrid."
Once on the ground, police came on board and "took him
away," the spokeswoman said.
She said the airline has "no idea" why the man, who
was not identified, decided to do what he did.
