Flight 895 from Chicago to Hong Kong was diverted to Alaska after a man smeared faeces all over two of the aircraft's lavatories.

The flight was diverted due to "a disruptive passenger", United Airlines said in a statement, adding that the said passenger was handed over to authorities at Anchorage and was reportedly cooperative.

They say the adult male smeared the excrement in a couple of bathrooms, and took off his shirt and tried to stuff it in a toilet.

"We received a report of a passenger who had messed up the bathrooms with his own faeces", Anchorage Airport police spokesman Joe Gamache said.

The United Airlines flight from Chicago to Hong Kong was diverted to Alaska after the flight crew reported a man on board had vandalised areas of the plane.

Passenger Tri Nquyen sat next to the man, a family friend who offered to ensure his safe arrival in Vietnam.

Airport police told the news station that no charges were filed against the passenger, but he was taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

The plane made its emergency landing in Anchorage just before 6:30 p.m. local time, according to data from FlightAware, a live flight tracking website.

The identity of the man who caused the disturbance has not been released, KTUU reports, but he cooperated with airport police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who questioned him after the plane landed in Anchorage.
