Passenger tied down


A PASSENGER had to be restrained with cable ties after he punched a female flight attendant in the face multiple times on an Emirates flight from Dubai to Melbourne.

Witness Matt Naylor said the man, who was travelling with a young boy, wanted more space to lie down.

“And then a male flight attendant, another gentleman and myself sort of jumped on the man and pushed him to the ground,” Mr Naylor said.

An Emirates spokesman said Australian Federal Police were called in.
