The flight had taken off from Melbourne Airport bound for Kuala Lumpur just after 11pm on Wednesday when the male passenger stormed into the business class section of the plane and demanded to speak to the pilot.

Heavily armed police boarded the plane after it landed in Melbourne and all passengers and crew left the aircraft without injury.

All other passengers have since disembarked without any reported casualties.

It gave no other details of the incident.

Ambrose said about a half-dozen passengers stopped the man as he ran back toward the rear of the plane and restrained him with seat belts.

The man has been detained and all the passengers are safe.

Terrified passengers were forced to sit with a device suspected of being a bomb for more than an hour as they waited for security to board the plane and investigate.


The flight departed Melbourne Airport at 2311 local time and returned at 2341, Malaysia Airlines said.

Saiqa Chaudhery, who said her husband Arif was on the plane, alleged the passenger was under the influence of drugs or alcohol and that he attacked a flight attendant.

No-one was injured in the bomb scare, he added.

Melbourne Airport remains in a lockdown over the incident and all flights headed there have been diverted to other airports. Later that same year, Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was shot down in eastern Ukraine.

The man was overpowered by passengers but armed police entered the plane to make sure everything was okay.

MH128 landed in Melbourne roughly 30 minutes after the flight took off according to a statement by Malaysia Airlines.

The passenger was later arrested by Australian authorities in Melboure. The airline wishes to apologize for the inconvenience caused.
