Two passengers traveling on a Virgin Atlantic flight were said to be caught taking part in a sexual activity by cabin crew.

The incident took place on a flight to Cancun from Gatwick, according to a report in The Sun.

The passengers caught joining the ‘mile-high club’ had just met on the flight.

Shortly after take-off, the woman reportedly began chatting with her fellow passenger. Soon, both of them headed to the economy cabin toilet.

Three flight attendants started banging on the door and found the woman sitting on the toilet seat while the man was standing.

Police detained the woman after the flight landed in Mexico.

Virgin Atlantic: “Flight VS93 from Gatwick to Cancun on March 13 was met by the authorities on arrival due to disruptive behavior on board.

“The safety and well-being of our customers and crew is our top priority, and we won’t tolerate any behaviour that compromises this.”
