American Airlines passenger detained after in-flight disturbance

20 May 2017

Passengers say he had to be subdued after trying to get to the front of the jetliner and was duct-taped to his seat until the plane landed. "Local law enforcement responded once the civilian airliner was on the ground", said Commander Dave Benham, without elaborating on the nature of the disturbance or name of the airline.

American Airlines Flight 31, an Airbus A321 that left LAX around 8:30 a.m., landed safely in Honolulu at 11:35 a.m. Hawaii Standard Time, according to the airline. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

American Airlines said he then went back through a TSA checkpoint in Terminal 4, where his flight to Honolulu was leaving from, and boarded the flight. A Homeland Security tweet reported no other disruptions on other flights, but said the agency was continuing to "monitor all flights out of an abundance of caution", the newspaper said.

Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing. It may go down as Trump's most famous use of the insult, but it is far from the first time it has crossed his lips.

About halfway through the six-hour flight, the Basdens saw the same man, holding his laptop, with something over his head, which they thought was a towel or a blanket. He was spotted by a contractor and later arrested by Los Angeles Airport Police officials for misdemeanor trespassing, cited and released.

Los Angeles airport police spokesman Rob Pedregon said Uskanil was a ticketed American Airlines passenger with a boarding pass who had cleared security screening but claimed that he lost his way because he was tipsy from drinking.

Several passengers subdued him, and he was arrested on the ground by Federal Bureau of Investigation. Witnesses said a flight attendant blocked him with the drink cart near first class. She referred further questions to Federal Bureau of Investigation, saying "We're still figuring out all the details".

Although the 19-coach train is created to run at a speed of up to 200 kmph, the existing track-related restrictions pose a hurdle. The new coaches are fitted with improved couplers that will make the journey jerk-free and comfortable at high speed, he added.

Instead they say he was stopped by a flight attendant who had jammed her serving cart in the doorway that separates first class from coach.

Lorenzen says other passengers grabbed the man. The man attempted to use a door off limits to the public in the middle of the night while waiting for his flight. The plane was escorted by two F-22 fighter jets for the rest of the flight following the incident.

Video from KGMB/KHNL showed two law enforcement officers escorting a person with hands behind their back off the plane. He then boarded Flight 31 to Honolulu. She was not aware of injuries.
