A Canadian couple on a Toronto-to-Halifax flight tried to hide their mid-flight sex acts by putting a coat over their laps, a flight attendant said.

Jason George Chase, 39, and Alicia Elizabeth Lander, 25, were each charged with indecent acts after the alleged January 2014 mile-high incident on an Air Canada flight.

Lander’s trial began Wednesday after she pleaded not guilty, CBC News reported.

Chase, who changed his original not guilty plea to guilty, is due in court on March. 27.

It’s not clear if the two knew each other before the frisky incident.

John Dunn, the service director on the Jan. 24 Air Canada flight, gave graphic testimony of the encounter in court Wednesday.

About halfway through the two-hour flight, another passenger told Dunn the couple was going to “join the Mile High Club.”

The flight attendant found Lander and Chase in their seats with a coat covering their laps. Lander’s hand was in Chase’s lap and making an up-and-down gesture, Dunn said.

Lander’s thighs and pink thong were also exposed, he said.

“Her pants were down around her ankles,” Dunn said in court, according to the Canadian Press. “I said, ’I want you to stop this now. It’s inappropriate.”’

Dunn demanded Lander get dressed and asked her to put her breasts back inside of her bra, he said. Once she pulled up her pants, Dunn separated the couple for the rest of the flight.

When the captain found out about the lovers’ shenanigans, he had Mounties meet the landing plane at the gate.

When police tried to escort Lander through the airport to an interview room, she became violent, RCMP Constable James Curran said.

She knocked down a sliding door, hit a police officer and knocked holes into walls, the Mountie said. She also reeked of alcohol.

“At one point she lunged at me as if to bite me,” said RCMP Constable Mac Routliffe, another one of the responding officers.

On top of the indecent acts charge, Lander was charged with assaulting a police officer, committing an act of mischief and causing a disturbance. Her trial will continue on March 3.
