Witness says woman 'got heated' with man while sitting next to parents
The pair then went into toilets before 'loud noises' were heard
When challenged over the romp the woman became abusive, witness says
She was questioned by US police but released with a warning
A 'drunken' British woman was questioned by police in the US after reportedly having sex with a man in the toilets of an airliner.
Cabin crew had to intervene after the woman, said to be in her 20s and flying with her parents, disappeared into the toilets with a man sitting next to her.
After a row broke out with air stewards following the incident on a Virgin Atlantic flight, the woman was taken away for questioning by US authorities.
Another passenger told The Sun: 'She started getting heated with the guy next to her.
'They went into the bathroom and people could hear loud noises. The cabin crew forced to door open, then she really kicked off.'
The paper reported the incident happened on a flight from London Gatwick to Las Vegas in the US last week.
The woman was questioned by police but released with a warning before continuing her holiday in the notorious Nevada resort.
It comes just week after an Australian was arrested for apparently mistaking the cockpit door of a Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Bali for the toilet, triggering a hijack scare.
Matt Lockley told Bali police that he banged on what he thought was the toilet door of Boeing 737-800 aircraft, sparking the terrorism fears.
Mr Lockley, 28, was later released without charge.
Last year, Virgin America launched a new service that allows passengers to send drinks, a meal or treats to fellow passengers in a move which many said encouraged mid-air flirting.
Virgin Atlantic said last night they do no accept bad behaviour by any passengers on board their planes.
