This morning, a passenger at Melbourne Airport ran across the tarmac and tried to force open the door of a Jetstar plane after he missed his flight.
According to reports on the incident, the man was supposed to catch a 9:30 a.m. flight to Adelaide but, when he got to the gate, he discovered that he’d missed the flight.
When the Jetstar crew broke the news, witnesses say that he lost it, physically assaulted the gate crew to get by them, ran onto the tarmac and up the stairs to the plane where he tried to yank open the door.

The craziest part? It wasn’t even his flight.
Two crew members (the ones he pushed over on his way out) managed to restrain him until the police arrived. Until they finish their investigation, the man has been banned from all Qantas and Jetstar flights.
