Passengers hoping for an uneventful flight from Melbourne to Bali had their hopes dashed. A TikTok video showed a man being escorted off Jetstar flight JQ1035 by authorities.

According to Sinead Merrett who posted the video, the plane was already delayed. Her caption read, “when your flight to Bali is already delayed and this guy decides to light a dart so we then have to wait for the police to escort him off.”

In the modern age, smoking and vaping are strictly prohibited on all airline carriers. But some passengers break the rules and find themselves in hot water, by either being arrested, fined heavily or both.

“Smoking, vaping or the use of electronic cigarettes is not permitted on any Jetstar aircraft, in Australian airport terminals or on the tarmac,” a spokesperson for Jetstar said. “The passenger was escorted off the flight and the AFP were called. Safety is our first priority and our no smoking policy is strictly enforced.”

TikTok users sounded off in the comments section under the video.

“Some of us old ex smokers can remember when the whole back of the plane was a smokers area,” wrote Geoff Woodgate. “Never bothered anyone.”

“Wow what a tool!” wrote Wendy Palmer.

“Only on a flight to Bali, aye!” wrote Emma Curtin.

Jetstar has been slammed with at least a week of delays and cancellations, leaving “thousands” of Australians stranded in Bali.
