They told 9News: “There was a commotion, there was yelling, people started standing up, it went on for a couple of minutes.

“One gentleman was then escorted to the rear of the aircraft, he had blood on his face.
“We didn’t hear anything else, we had no information.”
The passengers said the plane then suddenly started descending “without warning” as the captain carried out a priority landing.
They added: “We didn’t know what was happening.”

The pilot turned the plane around and returned the jet to Melbourne airport.
Cops were waiting for the flight, and the two men were removed from the plane.
According to witnesses, one of the men involved in the scrap was behaving aggressively before he boarded.
One passenger said: “The guy was aggressive before he got on the plane and we thought surely they won’t let him on the aircraft.
The flight took off for Brisbane shortly after the two men were removed.
Police have not made any arrests.
A Jetstar spokesman said the airline has a “zero tolerance for disruptive and abusive behaviour”.
They added: “The safety of our passengers and our crew is always our first priority and we thank our customers for their patience.
