It has been revealed that the German passenger who caused a scuffle onboard flight MH179 to Colombo on Saturday was not drunk but had asked for whisky.

Police said the 54-year-old, who was currently being remanded at the Sepang police headquarters before being charged with endangering the aircraft and passengers, had asked a stewardess to serve him whisky.

Police said the man was not drunk as his blood and urine tests proved negative.

It was reported that crew members and passengers had to subdue the man, prompting the pilot to turn back to KLIA minutes later.

The aircraft circled around the Malacca Straits for several hours to dump fuel as a safety precaution before landing.
